Chief Secretary's Office

Moral and Social Issues Council

A group Bible study
Helping Salvationists engage in moral and social issues in their communities.

The Moral and Social Issues Council (MASIC) reports to Cabinet, The Salvation Army’s senior spiritual leadership team in the UK and Ireland Territory.

Its role is:

  • To provide an ethical perspective and advice to territorial leadership
  • To help Salvationists engage in moral and social issues in their communities

The council includes officers and non-officers appointed by the Chief Secretary.

It aims to reflect the diversity of the territory and draw upon the skills, academic research, biblical and theological scholarship, and experience of its members and the wider Salvation Army.

Territorial Moral and Social Issues Councils support the work of the International Moral and Social Issues Council, which reports to the General and is responsible for The Salvation Army’s International Positional Statements.
