Discipleship pathways:

Fresh Start

Fresh Start

At the Bendigo Salvos we believe every person can make a Fresh Start in life. No matter what has happened in your life it is never too late to start again. We have a range of programs to help you make a Fresh Start physically, emotionally and spiritually. We believe Jesus came to earth so we can be forgiven for our past and start life anew with God. We encourage you to join with us at our weekly worship service where you can discover how to make a Fresh Start with God.



At the Bendigo Salvos we believe that God wants every person to Thrive in life. We Thrive as human beings when we live out a life of meaning and purpose. We believe the best way to discover this meaning and purpose is in community with God and with others. We have a range of small groups where you can discover your purpose and be equipped to Thrive.

Change the world

Change the world for the better

At the Bendigo Salvos we believe that God wants us to Thrive so we can Change the World for the better. God wants to bless you so that you can bless others around you. Here at the Bendigo Salvos we have a wide variety of volunteer and ministry opportunities where you can make a positive difference in our community and our world.


So The Salvation Army is a church? Yeah I know…who’d have thought…we do what we do because we love God. And that love for God shows in our love for his creation…and that includes you. Everyone has a place at The Salvation Army Bendigo. Why not pop in for a coffee and chat and find out all about us. We strongly believe that God has an incredible life designed just for you. Sometimes you just need someone to believe in you. Would you allow that someone to be us?

I could tell you about all the ‘stuff’ that happens here…the Kids and Youth stuff, the Thrift Shop, our Prayer Spaces, our Community Support Services, Recovery…but they aren’t the most important thing that you need to know. The most important thing you need to know is that YOU are a person of immense value! Come and experience God’s love and our love as soon as you can…it might just be the best decision you will make.
