The Salvation Army is a worldwide Christian church. 

Our faith convinces us that hope, purpose, and fulfillment can be everyone’s story. Whether you’re looking for connection, guidance or a community of like-minded people, The Salvation Army is here to welcome you.  

Our local churches are our grassroots community presence around the country, providing a huge diversity of spiritual, social and recreational activities. We provide a warm atmosphere where anyone can drop in, have a chat and feel welcomed.

If you've got questions about faith, if you want to explore Christianity, or if you'd just like to connect with other people in your community then our churches are places that can help.

Your local Salvo church

If you haven’t experienced our churches in action, you probably don’t know what to expect. It’s not as daunting as you may think. You can expect to enjoy joyous music, a short message of hope and a welcoming environment where you’ll feel comfortable and included.

Each Salvo church, typically known as a corps, is different. The best way to find out what's happening in your local area is to get in touch.

Search using your postcode below to find your local Salvo church, and add a keyword like 'youth' or 'playgroup' or 'seniors' if you're looking for something in particular.
