A place for everyone’s heart.
That is the Corps (Church) of the Salvation Army.
We gather every Sunday for worship (Holiness Meeting) to sing hymns, pray together,
share our testimonies, and listen to the message of encouragement from the Bible.

About the Corps (Church)

Corps (Church) nationwide hold various meetings, activities, and events. Please visit us.

Corps Activities

Holiness Meeting

Worship service held on Sunday morning, where you hear messages from the Bible and have a time of fellowship.

Salvation Meeting

Evangelical meeting for people who are not familiar with Christianity or who are new Christians. Themes like God, Jesus Christ, salvation, etc. are spoken in an easy-to-understand manner.

Fellowship Meal

After the worship on Sunday, we will have a meal together. It is an important time to remind that we are family of God.

Women’s Ministries

Women’s Ministry is open to the community where everyone, even non-Christians can participate.
We are engaged in various activities such as Home League, flower arrangement, chorus, Bible study, and child development support. Also, we carry out “Least Coin Project” campaign and donate to developing countries every year.

Sunday School

It plays an important role in the growth of youth's mind and body, learning the Bible and how to live as a Christian along the curriculum. There are also plenty of fun programs such as children's associations, summer bible schools, and camping.

Over 60’s Club

Gathering for anyone who is over the age of 60 and anyone can participate regardless of religious denomination. Every time, we enjoy a delicious homemade lunch and a fun program.

Special Meetings

Ceremonial events are held at the Corps and as a family of God, we share both joy and sadness. Believers are "brothers and sisters" who transcend age, background, and title.

In addition, various activities such as chorus and brass rehearsals, Bible study group, prayer meeting, concert, roadside mission, and distribution of bulletins are according to the members and needs of the Corps.

Community Care Ministries (CCM)

The CCM is a service group that responds to the needs of the community and practices the love of Christ, usually through a Salvation Army Corps. The content of the service varies from region to region, and the opportunities for service are endless. For example, we will visit sick people and elderly people living alone and provide as much assistance as possible, sharing peace and joy. CCM can participate in activities as a volunteer without becoming a member.

Other activities are as follows:

  • Visit hospitals and facilities.
  • Visit people with disabilities and people living alone in the area.
  • Helping with shopping, garden work, writing letters, preparing meals, etc.
  • Assistance in the event of an emergency (including preparation and distribution of consolation items such as clothing, daily necessities, and groceries)
  • Write a letter of consolation to those who have lost their families and are weakened.
  • Provide counseling.
  • Participate as volunteers at hospitals and facilities during rehabilitation and recreation.

How to become a CCM member

CCM membership qualifications are as follows,

A person who wants to serve with love and compassion for people and has been recommended by a Corps officer.
