Salvation Army celebrates 138 years in Leamington

Leamington Editorial 17th Jun, 2017   0

THE Salvation Army has celebrated 138 years of helping vulnerable people in Leamington.

The church on Chapel Street has helped many members of the community in that time, particularly those suffering from homelessness, addiction, unemployment and mental health problems.

And they are hoping to support others who need their help by offering more initiatives such as a weekly ‘knit and knatter’ group, which is held each Friday between 12pm and 3pm.

Church leader Major John McLean said: “We look forward to serving and getting to know people within our community. We like to be available to all people and so if anyone needs a listening ear or practical or spiritual support we make ourselves available.

“We had a great time celebrating 138 years of work in Leamington Spa and look forward until the next 138 years.”
