About Us

The Salvation Army in Malaysia has a range of corps (churches) and social service programmes that provide both spiritual guidance and practical assistance to people in need. The Army also manages residential care homes for children, youth and the aged and has also developed other services such as day care centres, a special education learning centre, kindergartens, emergency relief and community service centres.​

The Salvation Army in Malaysia is part of the Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand Territory with its headquarters in Bishan, Singapore. Our Regional Headquarters in Bandar Puteri, Puchong is the central point of contact for enquiries.​

The Salvation Army in Malaysia was established as an Act of Parliament, under the Salvation Army (Incorporation) Ordinance 1956. This Ordinance is now known as the Salvation Army (Incorporation) Act 1956 (Act 690)

Our Territory

The Salvation Army Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand Territory was created in September 2023. The work in each country commenced much earlier, with Myanmar in 1915, Singapore in 1935, Malaysia in 1938 and Thailand in 2023.

The Singapore, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand Territory’s highest-ranking officer is Territorial Commander, Colonel Hary Haran.

His position was appointed by The Salvation Army International Headquarters in London.​

The Salvation Army is structured in a military pattern with leadership vested in the General from the International Headquarters. While the chain of command extends from the General, through the Chief of Staff, into overseas departments, actual administration is vested in the territories and their individual community units.​
