New National Restrictions
In line with Government guidance, we have had to reassess what can take place within the Corps building in order to keep each other and the public as safe as possible. The guidance asks us all to stay at home and avoid meeting people we do not live with except for specific purposes. The hall will be closed apart from the following permitted activities:
• Rainbows Pre-School will remain open
• The food bank will continue to provide food support to the community.
Search Staines Salvation Army on YouTube for weekly online worship and subscribe to our channel.
Thank you to members of the public, volunteers, and local businesses for your wonderful support and generosity leading up to Christmas. Thanks to your help and donations we have been able to provide toys to over 350 local children and families referred to us, and over 40 people in our community who would have otherwise been alone will receive a Christmas day hamper delivery.
Thank you and happy Christmas!
We continue to serve the community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March we have made over 1100 food deliveries in the TW15 post code.
Lockdown has had a big impact on our income streams at The Salvation Army, such as the hire of our building and our normal Sunday collections. However, the direct costs of running and maintaining Staines Salvation Army Church and Community Centre remain the same. Any donation you are able to make towards these running costs would be gratefully received. Your help will equip us to continue to serve our community. You can now make a donation online using the Just Giving link: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/stainessalvationarmy
Food Bank Update

If you would like to donate towards the food bank the following items are in demand:
Toilet Rolls (4 pack)
