The Salvation Army works with some of the most vulnerable people in society. As we face the worst public health crisis in our lifetime, people on the margins need us now more than ever.
From running food banks and checking up on people who live alone, to offering counselling and supporting NHS isolation units, The Salvation Army is responding to the crisis in dozens of different ways.
Please visit our Justgiving page and donate what you can. Help us support as many people as possible.

We are a relaxed and friendly worshiping community and understand, embrace and celebrate the creative chaos that family life entails. In our worship meetings you can expect to find lots of laughter, fun, and noise alongside a real and authentic desire to draw close to Jesus and encounter his presence.
The music we use usually comprises contemporary Christian worship music, with a smattering of hymns and old Salvation Army fight songs, led by acoustic guitar (and often accompanied by toddlers on tambourines). Song words are displayed on flat screen TVs at the front of the hall.
A collection is taken to support the work of the Corps (visitors should not feel obliged to give), and often participants are invited to offer spoken or unspoken prayers, share their God-stories, or particpate in other ways.
Our teaching time, while sometimes including formal preaching, usually entails a conversation together exploring a Bible passage. We often discuss four key questions as we look at the chosen Bible passage: What does this tell us about God? What does this tell us about people? Is there a command to obey? Is there a promise to claim?
Like any family, our church family enjoys taking time to eat together, and usually Sunday Meetings are accompanied by food.
