The Salvation Army – it’s a name familiar to just about everyone.

But, there is so much more to The Salvation Army than meets the eye!

In every community where you find The Salvation Army, you will discover a ministry that is unique.

And yet, the same mission drives us all: to actively reach out to others in the name of Jesus Christ, and to introduce each one to a loving relationship with Jesus Christ.

For more than a hundred and twenty years, The Salvation Army has been a vital part of the South Ayrshire evangelical and social community.

Although it’s mainly known for its social ministries, The Salvation Army is a thriving and relevant mainstream Christian Church.

You can find us at 59 John Street, Ayr KA8 0BS (formerly the Wallacetown Parish Church).

Everyone is welcome at our vibrant weekly worship services and our programmess which are relevant for people of all ages.

Our exciting Sunday morning worship starts at 10:45 am and is usually finished by 12:15 pm.

A highlight of family worship is a “coffee and fellowship” time immediately after the service, where you get to meet people and chat about things that matter to you most.

The preaching and worship is bible-based and you probably can't worship anywhere else where a brass band accompanies the singing every week!
