Planning your Visit

New to Church?

Welcome! Whether you've just moved to the area, or have lived here all your life, we hope our website helps you to find out everything you want to know about our Church.

Key information about the church...


Where & when does the church meet?

Our Regent Hall Salvation Army Church meets every Sunday at 11:00am for our Sunday Service. Our open-air meeting on Oxford Street is at 10:00am. Unfortunately we are not able to meet in person at present, due to the pandemic, but we are worshipping online on YouTube and Facebook.

We meet at:
Regent Hall
275 Oxford Street

You can see a map on our contact us page


What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go. We have a time of worship with congregational singing and items from our musical sections. We have periods of reflection, when we pray and read the Bible, and our Bible message is brought to us by one of our officer team. 

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after the service where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.


What happens to the kids at church?

We have a great programme for the kids at Regent Hall for:

Explorers (4-7 years)
Kids Zone (8-10 years)

We also have an active youth group, including Pulse - a Sunday session learning about faith, as well as regularly getting together for worship and just meeting up socially and for sports.

For more information about what happens in the children's and youth work please visit the relevant age groups for you under church life.


Is there a dress code?

Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes. Our corps officers (Church leaders) and Salvationists do wear Salvation Army uniform to be visible in our ministry and witness.


Will I have to join in?

Not at all! You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
