Barking Corps photography competition attracted over 100 competitors from seven to 80+ years old. The photographs were exhibited on 24 September and the event was covered by the Barking and Dagenham Post.

The Salvation Army Barking Corps would like to acknowledge the support of: Barking Library, Eastbury Community School, Barking and Dagenham Chamber of Commerce and Mr Steve Drury in successfully promoting our event.

Christmas Tree Festival 2017

This December will be our 6th Christmas  Tree Festival at the Salvation Army in Barking. Each year we invite people from our church and the surrounding community to decorate a tree and bring it to our hall in Ripple Road for display over a weekend in December.

The trees range from small to large and we have traditionally decorated trees as well as very originally decorated trees. We always find much thought has been put into each tree.

The project was started when the organiser – Enid Weaver, visited a church holding a similar festival in Essex. It was thought that using the idea in Barking might bring together the community and that the hall looking so attractive, would entice passers by to come in and view the display.

We have been very lucky to have around 24 trees on display each year, and this year is looking very positive for reaching our target.

Although all those connected with our church contribute trees, we also have others who contribute from the community. Charities, Schools and Businesses are especially welcome.

This year our Festival will commence on Saturday 9th December, when trees will be on display from 10.00am until 4.00pm. On Sunday the display will be from 10.30 – 12.30 during morning service. There is no charge for entering a tree and no charge for coming in to view.
