The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army is an integral part of the Christian Church, although distinctive in government and practice.
The Army's doctrine follows the mainstream of Christian belief and its articles of faith emphasise God's saving purposes. Its objects are the advancement of the Christian religion, of education, the relief of poverty, and other charitable objects beneficial to society.
Salvation Army places of worship are Christian churches open to the community they serve and offering a warm welcome to all.
Most hold weekly worship services, usually on a Sunday. Other weekday and evening activities may include prayer groups, family events, lunch groups, youth clubs and meetings for seniors.
