Our world leader General André Cox joined around 700 Salvationists last weekend to celebrate 135 years of work in the Ireland division.
We now have 19 churches and seven social centres in the division - covering Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland - which helps vulnerable and disadvantaged people through a range of initiatives. These include the Christmas Family Appeal, Bangor Befriending Service, Newry Knights and the children’s brass band at Belfast Citadel Corps.
