What Do We Believe

The Salvation Army is an international Christian church worshipping and working in 124 countries and has more than 800 local churches, known as “corps” in the UK and Ireland.

We believe in openly sharing our faith and the good news of God’s love for everyone, helping individuals to develop and grow in their own personal relationship with God, demonstrating a practical concern for all and speaking out against social injustice.


More Than a Church

Harpenden Salvation Army is a place of worship where Sunday meetings are held, but also we provide a practical expression of our Christian faith during the week, when our doors are open to offer programmes and activities for the whole community.

This includes Baby Song, Toddler Song, Play Group, Theatre Groups, drop-in centres, advice clinics and lots more. Our members will also offer emergency assistance such as groceries to individuals and families in need.


Who Worships with The Salvation Army?

Worship services (meetings) are held every Sunday and a typical congregation will be made up of a wide and diverse mix of people from all backgrounds, ages and walks of life. You do not have top be a member of the Salvation Army to worship with us. ANYBODY is welcome.


What Happens at a Salvation Army meeting?

No meeting is ever the same at Harpenden. But what we can promise is lively worship mixed with medative times of reflection. To enhance worship we have 4 sections who take part. They are our Senior Band, Senior Choir (Songsters), Young People’s┬áBand and Children’s Choir (Singing Company). We do try to make church accessible and relevant to everyone.

You will also see us from time to time taking part in outside services or helping out other churches. After every morning service we always have refreshments to round off a perfect Sunday morning.
