The Salvation Army Buckingham

The Salvation Army in Buckingham is a growing community of people who are learning how to live out faith in Jesus, and loving Buckingham in practical ways.

Announcing Wednesday Church, a weekly gathering to encounter God together. Because Wednesday is the new Sunday. You coming?
Starting 7.30pm tomorrow Wednesday 5th February 2020.

[01/08/20]   This evening's Prayer & Praise night has been cancelled.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

Merry Christmas everyone! Emmanuel, God is with us.

We loved sharing Carols on the Corner with Western and Overn Avenues this morning. There were candy canes galore, tea towels, dressing gowns and tinsel aplenty. Check out our pop up nativity crew, and our band. Mary and Joseph brought their own (bigger than life size) donkey. And have you ever seen a better grumpy innkeeper face before (far left)?
And we were having far too much fun at our family carol service this afternoon to take any photos, but there was a lot of chocolate, crafting and fun as we unwrapped the biggest pass the parcel ever to discover the greatest gift of all - God who comes close.
Merry Christmas, Buckingham!

Did you spot our special guest brass ensemble playing outside Waitrose this morning? See in the comments for details of their next appearances.

Grateful to all the generous people of Buckingham who helped us to provide Christmas presents for 100 children this year, especially those who responded to our last minute shout out for extra donations when we were running low. Thanks for helping us make a difference. I pass on the deep gratitude of parents, many of whom were able to find the perfect present they knew they wouldn't have been able to give otherwise.

CAN YOU HELP SPREAD CHRISTMAS CHEER?

The Salvation Army in Buckingham is running out of toys and gifts for our Christmas gift appeal to support local families who will be struggling this Christmas. If you would like to help, we are in need of NEW UNWRAPPED Christmas presents for children of all ages, but particularly older children and teenagers.

Please bring to The Salvation Army on Moreton Road (opposite Prezzo, next to the public loos) either this afternoon (Wednesday) by 5pm, or tomorrow (Thursday) from 8:45am.

Come on Buckingham, let's make Christmas happen!

@tabushk made these beautiful stained glass-effect window decorations years ago, and each year during Advent we put them up to share the Christmas story to all who pass our hall.

We had a great time joining in with all the awesome community events happening in town today (market, craft fair, Christmas lights switch on, BPS stall etc etc).
Look out for us sharing Christmas carols around Buckingham through December! And a big thank you to everyone who has supported us and our work in the community through your generous donations, we couldn't do it without you.

Where is hope? It might feel like the world is crumbling around us, and no one has answers. So where might God be in the middle of all this, and what does all this have to do with Christmas anyway? We'll be kicking off advent by trying to find out.

Our Little Stars have started the Advent countdown to Christmas by making these Christmas wreaths and fingerprint angel decorations, and sharing the promise of the angel Gabriel to Mary, 'with God all things are possible.' Join us over the next few Wednesdays as we keep discovering the Christmas story with craft, songs and (electric) candles 🕯️🕯️🎄

What a bunch of champions! Our half term Football Academy, at Overn Avenue play space every morning last week, included plenty of drills and training, warm-ups and stretches, and a daily ‘Team Talk’, based on the life of Joseph from the Bible. What a great way to learn some skills, conquer fears, build friendships and have a whole lot of fun!

Good news if you like fireworks! Buckingham Town Fireworks Display has been rescheduled!

Saturday 9th November 6 pm: new date for Buckingham Bonfire and Fireworks!

Buckingham Town Council was forced to make the difficult decision to cancel the Buckingham Bonfire and Fireworks event at 9am on Saturday morning. The decision was made due to the extremely boggy conditions at the Bourton Park paddock where the event is held; which experienced staff members judged as too wet for the vehicles moving into the field for the event, and potentially hazardous to those coming to watch the fireworks.

This assessment was made early on the Saturday morning and all parties notified as quickly as possible in order to avoid cancellation fees – this means that the funds used to pay for the event are still available and with some minor changes it has been possible to reschedule the Bonfire and Fireworks this SATURDAY 9th NOVEMBER.

We are delighted to confirm that Titanium Fireworks will be lighting up the sky with a colour popping display, the event starts from 6 pm with music and tasty hot food and drinks, including donuts.

Alex is a Junior Soldier at Buckingham Salvation Army, and spent time this week selling the War Cry outside Waitrose to spread the good news and raise money for the cause (assisted, of course, by his mum, who is out every Tuesday doing the same).
Look out for Alex, and other Salvation Army Soldiers selling the War Cry in December, when we’ll be singing carols as well!

The weather has turned, and we're well into the 'season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'. Little Stars is on even in half-term: 11am-12.30pm every Wednesday. See you there!

Is your life bearing good fruit?

It's world mental health day today. We're praying for everyone who's impacted by mental health issues, and continuing to work at being a safe place to show up, whatever you're grappling with.

Great to worship and learn with these lovely ladies at Care for the Family's #freetobe conference yesterday!

What a harvest celebration yesterday, with so much to thank God for! We welcomed Lisa as our newest adherent member, dedicated our new young people's flag, which helps us to remember God is always with us, encouraging us out into his world full of love, and retold the parable of the sower using popcorn. All washed down with a lovely lunch as usual, because 'meeting without eating is cheating'.

An army needs soldiers, and The Salvation Army needs salvation soldiers. God calls everyone who follows him to enlist on his side in the great battle between good and evil, light and darkness. He guarantees there will be struggle ahead, but he promises to equip us with the armour of God.
Salvation Army soldiers promise to live out a radical discipleship commitment called The Soldiers Covenant. These are our Articles of War, they set out the terms of our commitment to God and the specific things he is calling us to as The Salvation Army.
Boot Camp is a practical, experiential opportunity to get spiritually fit and explore whether being a Salvation Army soldier is for you.
Boot Camp is not for the faint hearted.

Looking forward to Prayer and Praise Night this Wednesday evening - 7.30pm at The Salvation Army, Moreton Road, Buckingham.

Michael and Vaida have lived in Buckingham for two years, and been a part of The Salvation Army for most of that time. They are passionate about loving their community, and go out of their way to support families and elderly people in their neighbourhood. They are both involved in our children’s ministry.

The Salvation Army United Kingdom with the Republic of Ireland

We're grateful for your support of The Salvation Army's social work and we've been fundraising for our annual Big Collection this month. Some of the people who benefit from those funds are the residents of our lifehouses, some of whom are taking part in this football tournament:

This week sees the kick off our annual homelessness football tournament, the Partnership Trophy. Tomorrow, over 25 teams from our Lifehouses and homelessness support services across the UK will travel to Goals in Manchester to participate in a 5-aside tournament.

The Partnership Trophy provides the opportunity for our Lifehouse residents to improve their health and wellbeing, make new friends and build self-esteem and confidence.

Watch our highlights of last year’s tournaments to learn more.
