SASRA works to ensure that those risking their lives hear the gospel and understand that there is a life after death.

SASRA employs missionary evangelists, called Scripture Readers, who have the opportunity to live and minister ‘behind the wire’, presenting the good news of Jesus Christ to all British Military personnel.

“Joining the Army was the starting point on my journey to the Christian faith. Basic soldier training was a horrible experience for me but attending the church services every Sunday brought encouragement and a much-needed sense of peace.” – Christian soldier

“Had it not been for the Scripture Reader’s prayers and the work of SASRA along the way, I would not have gone on to have a full Army career and be here to talk about it today” – Army veteran

“I have been working amongst the men back from the Normandy battle front. Both officers and men have given me a very vivid description of what faith in God means in the thick of the battle; many made the great decision on the field.” – Scripture Reader’s report from 1944.

Today, SASRA exists for the same purpose as it did during the wars of the past: to serve those who serve, and to tell them of the call to be a soldier of the Lord’s Army”
