About Us

Family Preston
We would like to welcome you to come along the journey with us; A place where you can connect with a family of people and have a sense of belonging. We are a people of faith committed to loving God and others in creative and tangible ways. We achieve this through meeting together each week (Sunday, 10am), remaining in contact with each other through the week (in small groups), private prayer and study, and community involvement.

Community Involvement

Our community involvement includes a range of activities that care for people and work for justice such as, Community Lunch, Emergency Relief, Drop-in Centre and more. Find out more


We meet regularly as a faith community to encourage one another, to learn, and to worship together. We have activities for all ages including children's teaching, music for toddlers, places for youth to hang out together, womens groups and more. Find out more

Mission Statement

The Salvation Army is a Christian movement dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus.

We share the love of Jesus by:

Caring for People:
  • Being there when people need us most
  • We offer care and compassion as a sacred encounter with transformative potential
Creating faith pathways:
  • Taking a holistic approach to the human condition that values spirituality
  • We graciously share the Good News of Jesus and grow in faith together
Building healthy communities:
  • Investing ourselves in relationships that promote mutual flourishing 
  • We find the wholeness God intends for us in community
Working for justice:
  • Tackling the social systems that harm creation and strip away human dignity
  • We join God’s work to build a fairer world where all can thrive
Worshipping together is one way we try to understand our relationship with God and our responsibility for others. We are continually exploring what it means to "love God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength", and what that looks like as we try to positively influence our community. Come in and visit some time: we need all the help we can get!

Our Vision
