Petone Corps Plant

Petone Corps Plant

Welcome to the Salvation Army Petone. We are a corps (church) plant that started in February 2010 and we're exploring faith and community together with people from the community.    We are focused on figuring out how our faith in Jesus and the expression of that on Sunday can intersect with our daily lives and bring out the God colours and flavour in society.

Service time(s): 
Sundays at 10am
