Sponsored WalkThe story of Salvationism in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea commenced in the summer of 1902 when the Salvation Army first arrived and started to hold evangelism meetings. 

The news that the Army was in town had a great impact on the village and many were converted into the Christian faith.  The Corps, or Church, recently celebrated 100 years of work in the area, showing that the Salvation Army still has an important role to play today in the life of Newbiggin by the Sea.

Premises With Purpose

Over the years as the Salvation Army Corps in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea developed we acquired and developed two halls for activities.   Our Worship Hall is based on Front Street and the Community Hall is based close by in Vernon Place.  The main weekly activities take place in the Community Hall with Sunday worship taking place in the Worship Hall. The halls are based in the East End or “Fisher End” of the village close to the sea front.  The two halls in recent years have undergone major improvement work and are fully accessible to all in our community.

Singing CompanyMusic With A Mission

Music in the Salvation Army plays an important part in worship.  As the Corps grew with new converts musical sections were developed to support worship and open air ministry.   Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Salvation Army Band and Songsters (choir) continue to support worship every Sunday and are often requested to provide music at various locations or community events across the area.

A World Vision

The Corps also supports the national and international work of the Salvation Army who work with some the poorest and disadvantaged, both in this country and across the world.   The community of Newbiggin by the Sea and surrounding area are invited to support The Salvation Army’s Annual Appeal, which takes place each September.  Members of the Corps are also active in raising funds for other worthy causes and charities both in this area and overseas.

You Are Very Welcome

The Corps has a full programme of activities that all can access.  However, The Salvation Army is primarily a Christian Church and we meet for worship, in Newbiggin-by-the-Sea, every Sunday at 10.30am and 4.00pm.  We would warmly welcome you to any of our activities.
