Many people are contacting us asking how they can help support those affected by the war in Ukraine.
WHAT IS HAPPENING
The Salvation Army already has people in Ukraine and neighbouring countries providing food, shelter, clothing, prayers and hope. We have programmes and personnel in Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Romania, Moldova and other European countries who were able to offer practical assistance as soon as the situation escalated. Some rushed to the border of Ukraine to hand out urgent provisions, while others made arrangements to offer support to people and families displaced by the violence. Read details about relief work on this website here and at International Headquarters here.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP
The best thing you can do practically is to make a monetary donation to support Salvation Army relief work:
- You can give via The Salvation Army's United Kingdom & Ireland International Projects Office. The appeal page and donation link is https://www.salvationarmy.org.uk?form=Ukrainecrisisappeal
- If you are a group that is raising money through a fundraising event or challenge (rather than an individual giving a one off donation) you can use JustGiving - https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/TheSalvationArmyResponseinUkraine
OFFERS OF BLANKETS, CLOTHING OR OTHER ITEMS
We can only accept cash donations for international emergency appeals and relief work. Giving money is the best way you can help.
In most cases, donating items slows down our international relief work as items need to be sorted, cleaned and transported. Spending money on delivering items also leaves less money to help those in immediate need.
We use our international network to make sure help is given to the people who need our support. We have Salvation Army officers and Salvationist volunteers already on hand in Ukraine and neighbouring countries. We are working with them and our colleagues at our international headquarters in London to make sure donations are used properly.
Thank you for your support of all those affected by the crisis in Ukraine at this time. It is appreciated.

Welcome to Basingstoke Salvation Army Online
An Online Family Where You Belong.
Each weekend we broadcast our worship meetings around the world.
You can find positive, practical encouragement wherever you find yourself.
Basingstoke Corps now has its very own app, downloadable on the Apple App Store (for iPhone and iPad) and the Google Play Store (for most other smartphones and tablets running on Android).
The app allows you to:
Access the latest content from Basingstoke Corps. Receive positive practical encouragement anywhere you are at anytime.
* Watch all the latest worship meetings from Basingstoke Salvation Army.
* Watch all the latest sermons.
* Join LIVE worship meetings.
* Read my blog.
The app should notify you when new content becomes available and when we go live.
For iPad and iPhone Users
On your iPhone or iPad, click on this link, or head to the App Store and search for "Basingstoke Salvation Army" (without the quote marks). Click on the "Get" button to download the app to your device.
For Android Users
On your smartphone or tablet, click on this link, or head to the Play Store app and search for "Basingstoke_Salvation_Army" (without the quote marks, but you must use the underscores ("_") due to a Play Store bug) Click on the app when you find it and then click on the "Install" button to install the app on your device.
For Kindle Fire Users
If you already have the Google Play Store app on your Kindle, then follow the instructions for Android Users. If you don't have Google Play installed (and most won't), there is a convoluted and complicated way of getting it on to your device. You can follow the instructions here if you want to try it.
For All Users
Click on the app on your device to use and explore it. The content is the same on both platforms. The app opens on the Media page, which gives you access to the main, live worship and sermon playlists. You will note that the main playlist (the top one in the list) has the next live episode at the top. This is one way to access live worship from the app on Sunday. But for now, simply click on the playlist you want to explore to access the content. When you choose an episode you will be presented with the details and the content available. The Video button accesses video of the episode, the Audio button will serve just audio of the episode, and if the PDF button is showing, then you can view a document associated with the episode (for example, our live worship episodes have access to the Worship Sheet for that week). Click on the Home button to return to the Media page.
Also on the Media/Home page is a Series button which organises the content into sermon series, in case you want to consume the content in this way.
In the top left hand corner is a "burger icon" (a series of three or four horizontal lines). This gives access to the menu for the app, to help you navigate the content:
This is the place where the content is stored as described above.
Click on this to search the app for any content that's available. Once you've clicked on Search then put your search term (e.g. sermon title, series title, speaker, date, etc.) in the box marked Search Media (you'll need to click on the magnifying glass icon on Android) and then click on Search or the magnifying glass icon on your keyboard.
This page gives you access to my blog posts. Choose a post that interests you and then click on it and you'll be taken to it. Click on the left arrow icon at the top of the page to return to the app.
Lives and Broadcasts
This is where our live broadcasts are listed. If there are any planned for the day you are looking, they should be listed under Upcoming (or Ended if you've missed it!) and if we are On Air when you are looking, it should be listed under On Air. This might be the easiest place to access our live content when we are live or about to go live (e.g. Sunday mornings).
About & Links
This page gives you information about the Corps, including email address, web address, a link to our Facebook page and a link to sign up to our mailing list. It also shows a map of our location.
This page gives you details of our forthcoming events. It will ask if you want to give access to the Calendar on your device. If you click yes it gives you the ability to add any events to your calendar.
The Bible menu item gives you access to the Bible on youversion.com. You can read the Bible in many different translations and paraphrases (useful in the Bible reading and sermon!), sign up to a reading plan, receive a Verse of the Day and more.
The settings page allows you to toggle on or off several settings for the app, including if you want the app to show you a badge (the red numbers on the icon on your device) and send you a notification when we are on air.
