Learn more about who we are and what we do as a church, the wider Salvation Army and our passion for the Rolleston community.
The Salvation Army Rolleston is a church plant, a fresh faith community that is part of the global Salvation Army.
Rock on up to one of our services and you'll find a group of cheerful, relaxed, and friendly people who want to make our community a better place.
Our Officers (Pastors), along with the other leaders, create a relaxed environment where we can do life and be real together.
Each Sunday at 11am is our church Gathering.
Our services are around 1 hour 15 mins, and are a time of singing, sharing, celebrating, discussion and the occasional walk in the garden.
The coffee (and tea!) is free-flowing, and we meet from 10:30 to share in morning tea before our service starts. Don't worry though, coffee refills are fully accessible during the service!
Our Kid's Church is pretty great too! They drink less coffee, but they have their own space with dancing, music and many games of dinosaur tag.
Why not come along?
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by love for God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in his name without discrimination.
As a small part of a worldwide movement, we're located within the Southern 'Division' of our 'Territory' - New Zealand, Fiji, Tonga & Samoa.
We're strong believers that The Salvation Army, as a part of the church, should make a community better.
We're not interested in being a private church, hidden away - we believe we can make a difference for our neighbours!
We're invested in Rolleston and love being part of this community. Check out the various things we can do together.
