An official opening was held to celebrate the beginning of a new era for Salvation Army in Bathurst. The new mission house, located in Bentinck Street, is now open and in operation.
The new premise will service Bathurst and surrounding areas helping locals who are in need of financial assistance, food and essentials assistance and ongoing support for those experiencing difficult times.
Member for Bathurst Paul Toole was in attendance and said the new facility was an excellent addition to Bathurst.
“After 12 months without a home base it is great to see the Salvation Army settling into their new premise and getting back to what they do best, helping our community members most in need,” Mr Toole said.
“I look forward to seeing Salvation Army personnel around the electorate as they grow their services and community outreach.”
The Salvation Army is still searching for a new shop front to house their Family Store, once this occurs the team will be able to continue their new beginnings and rebuild their corps and volunteer base.
