Maesteg Salvation Army has been an active church in Maesteg for over 100 years.
Our aim is to introduce people to our friend Jesus.
Ok....Some of us do wear strange uniforms and you may wonder why?
It tells the onlooker that the person wearing uniform
is a professing Christian and that he or she is available to give
practical or spiritual help through the Movement, if not personally. Uniform also opens the way for the wearer to be recognised and accepted as the representative of The Salvation Army in all kinds of situations.
There are also personal advantages in uniform-wearing. It helps the wearer to remember to live up to the Christian profession he or she has made. In difficult or dangerous situations the uniform can give the wearer a measure of protection. Wearing uniform also gives Salvationists a feeling of fellowship when they meet.
The intention of Salvation Army uniform is not to isolate its wearer from other people but to give a visible sign that he or she is available to serve
The good news is though.....
You do not have to wear uniform to be a Salvationist
