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

Interest groups


We run each Wednesday during term-time from 9:30am-11:30am for all children aged under 5 when accompanied by a parent or caregiver. Costs $2 per child or $5 per family of three or more children. Please bring your own water bottle for your children, and hat and sunscreen. It would be great to see you here!

Please note: Playgroup at The Salvation Army Petone has concluded for 2015. It will restart on Wednesday 17 February 2016 under new leadership.

Please keep an eye on our facebook page for the latest information. (Search "The Salvation Army Petone Playgroup")

Pancakes at Petone 

Once a month we have a pancake brunch and fantastic coffee made by our own barista. It costs $5 per adult and $3 per child and you can eat all the pancakes you want. It would be great to see you there. We begin at 10am. These recommence in 2016 on Sunday 28 February.
