Welcome to Church, Tauranga!

Welcome, friends, to The Salvation Army Church in Tauranga. 

If you are weary and burdened, come. You'll find peace, aroha and acceptance here. We are a Bible-based faith community who seek to live and love like Jesus. This is outworked in the programmes and services we offer, and we are totally dependent on God for the power to fulfill our calling. Tēnā koutou. Nau Mai, Haere Mai Whakatau Mai.

We are a friendly Christian church in Tauranga Central, catering to people old and young from all walks of life. The Salvation Army has roots in the Methodist church and is part of the international Christian community. We have branches worldwide and a strong focus on serving those who are in need. Jesus worked with compassion, and we seek to do the same - for every struggle you might face in life, our aim is to be there alongside you. Our city's population is diverse, and so we believe churches in Tauranga should warmly welcome all, regardless of who they are or what they might have been through. So come along to one of our services - you’ll feel right at home.

Our Sunday church service runs at 10:30 am, complete with excellent programmes for kids. We also run midweek small group programmes and a recovery church service on Friday nights.

If you’d like to find out more, call us on (07) 578 4264 or pop in anytime at 51 Fifth Ave, Tauranga.
