About Us

The Salvation Army is a part of the Christian Church with a mission to spread the Christian faith throughout the world. You will find The Salvation Army in over 130 countries. Our message is based upon the Bible. Our ministry is motivated by the love of God. Our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name, without discrimination.

Why not come along to Colchester Citadel Salvation Army Church and Community Centre and share with us in worship? On Sunday mornings we hold a family service giving opportunity for all ages to worship together.

At a given point in our meeting, around 10.45, the children leave for their Bible teaching and the adults remain together for theirs.

Colchester Citadel is the town centre branch of The Salvation Army. Our sister church in Ipswich Road, Colchester is Colchester Mount Zion.

Our worship hall and community centre was modernised in 2012 giving us a fresh building with lots of light and modern audio visual equipment.
