We appreciate your patience as we work through the details for our food pantry schedule. Feeding people has always been a major part of our mission, serving men, women and children, including many single parents, and we want to return to doing so as quickly as possible. We are here to give a hand up and not a hand out.
Our Worship Service will be taking place out of our new temporary location. These services have a relaxed atmosphere, and can include singing, Bible readings, and presentations by worship or drama groups. As well as services on a Sunday, there are often weekday and evening activities, such as prayer groups, family events, lunch groups, youth clubs, and meetings for seniors. Please call for more details and to see what is offered when!

While The Salvation Army is known for helping those in need, due to a fire, we now need your help more than ever! Whether you contribute financially, donate goods, give your time, or support us through social media, with your help, The Salvation Army in Greater Norwich can continue to reach out to individuals and families to offer a hand-up, not a hand-out. Please contact us if interested in supporting our efforts or if you are in need of assistance.
Whether it's embracing the homeless, uplifting the abused or abandoned, training and mentoring the disadvantaged, providing character building programs for youth, or assisting the displaced or elderly, The Salvation Army's goal remains the same: serving the most people, meeting the most needs, DOING THE MOST GOOD!
