As 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of The Salvation Army we want to invite Salvationists and friends living in the North West to share with us in this event and by so doing raise public awareness that we are a Christian church motivated to reach out into the community in order to change lives.

Throughout the day there will be an exhibition featuring the history and heritage of The Salvation Army together with stalls, a children’s tent and activities specifically for them.

The event is taking place Saturday 16th May 2015 on Lord street from 11:00 am.
