The Salvation Army has said farewell to its home in the Citadel on London Road in Grantham after 120 years of worship.

The local Salvation Army church has moved into its new home at The Old Barracks in Sandon Road. The local organisation could no longer afford the upkeep of the Citadel, where it had been based since 1896, and said its final farewells at the weekend.

The relocation comes after a new Salvation Army charity shop was opened in the town on St Peter’s Hill earlier in March.

Church leader Major Marta Ager said: “We’re very excited about this new chapter for The Salvation Army in Grantham. Our move to The Old Barracks will provide opportunities to increase the services and activities we can offer to the local community and those in need.

“I’d like to thank the local churches, organisations and people of Grantham who have supported and prayed for us during this time of change. We are here to serve the community and look forward to welcoming you to our new home.”

Local members will meet for worship every Sunday at 10.30am at The Old Barracks. For more information, contact Marta on 01476 563773 or email marta.ager@salvationarmy.org.uk
