Welcome                                                            crest

Colchester Citadel is the town centre worship and community centre of The Salvation Army. It is situated on the corner of the Southway and Butt Road, opposite the police station.

Our main Sunday service each week is at 10.15am. Hymns and worship songs are accompanied by piano, organ or brass band.

Our congregation includes people from a wide range of ages, races, social and economic backgrounds. Our congregation is increasingly multi-cultural with members from Africa, Asia and mainland European countries. For example, our leaders (church ministers) are Major Alan Frederiksen (from Denmark) and his wife Major Carol Frederiksen (from South Africa).

We are all unique, so why not bring your uniqueness to join our wonderfully diverse congregation? You will be very welcome.  

Urgent Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation Update 24th March 2020:

We are facing times we have never experienced before, and it is vital we all play our part and follow the Governments daily news updates,so that we remain informed. Since we last updated our public life as a church, the guidelines have been sharpened even further, and we must be seen to respond accordingly.

We will NOT be able to open the building for quiet prayer on Sundays as first suggested. Instead we will look at using our Facebook page. If you like our page you can follow what happens. It is possible to 'Live Stream' directly from the hall and one thing we are looking into is to offer an hour of music streamed live - initially some simple hymn tunes on the piano. Keep an eye on this page for the times we decide to do this.

We can also recommend Fortress Radio. Every Sunday at 11am and 6pm this radio station will broadcast Army meetings that you can listen to at home via your computer of mobile phone. 

Click on this link to find the radio station.   


Also remember that we offer daily devotional readings on the Facebook page (again, you must 'like' our page to see the updates, and also on this web page. Look for the 'Worship and reflection' tab on the menu.

Finally, one other practical point: We thought we would be able to open the hall on Thursday morning to offer a safe space for emergency food and drink. This is now not possible anymore; we will, however, offer a Take Away service limited to hot drinks, soup and/or rolls, crisp and fruit, to take away - not to sit in the building. All that said: we will make our toilet facilities available.

We hope to be of service and help to you as best we can; may you all stay safe and well, and Stay Home!
