We are a vibrant Christian church in the heart of London. We would love to welcome you at any one of our Sunday worship services, or see you during the week at Cafe Renew.
The Salvation Army exists to:
- SAVE souls
- GROW saints
- SERVE suffering humanity
The purpose of the Regent Hall Corps is to make disciples who glorify God by their total commitment to God and God’s purpose, which is to bring people into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and into active membership of His family. We will offer Christ’s love unconditionally to all.
Doctrines of The Salvation Army
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments were given by inspiration of God, and that they only constitute the Divine rule of Christian faith and practice.
We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, and who is the only proper object of religious worship.
We believe that there are three persons in the Godhead – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, undivided in essence and co-equal in power and glory.
We believe that in the person of Jesus Christ the Divine and human natures are united, so that He is truly and properly God and truly and properly man.
We believe that our first parents were created in a state of innocency, but by their disobedience, they lost their purity and happiness, and that in consequence of their fall, all men have become sinners, totally depraved, and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has by His suffering and death made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved.
We believe that repentance toward God, faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are necessary to salvation.
We believe that we are justified by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ and that he that believeth hath the witness in himself.
We believe that continuance in a state of salvation depends upon continued obedient faith in Christ.
We believe that it is the privilege of all believers to be wholly sanctified, and that their whole spirit and soul and body may be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the body, in the general judgement at the end of the world, in the eternal happiness of the righteous, and in the endless punishment of the wicked.

REGENT HALL A Salvation Army Church in Oxford Street. Oxford Street’s best kept secret.
The purpose of the Regent Hall Corps is to make disciples who glorify God by their total commitment to Him and His purpose which is to bring people into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and into active membership of His family. We offer Christ’s love unconditionally to all.
The Regent Hall Salvation Army Church is situated in Europe’s busiest shopping street, a hundred yards away from Oxford Circus, and a stone’s throw from the London Palladium. Originally built as a roller skating rink, it continues to be affectionately known as ‘the Rink’.
It was acquired by the Salvation Army in 1882 and is well known internationally as one of the Army’s finest corps (church). It’s members witness to the Christian faith through worship each Sunday (3 public services) and through a busy church programme. The Regent Hall Corps can be seen in Oxford Street, Sunday by Sunday holding street services for the many visitors to the area. ‘If people don’t go to church, the church goes to the people’ is the maxim behind this activity. The church has a membership of around 300 and it’s Sunday services attract a wide age range, although the 20-35 group would be the strongest. You do not have to be a Salvationist or wear a uniform to attend the services, people come from all walks of life and see the Regent Hall as their ‘spiritual home’.
Music constitutes a vital part of the Salvation Army’s ministry, and at Regent Hall there is a variety of musical expression, both contemporary and traditional. The lively choral and brass band presentations feature each Sunday in the worship services, both indoors and outdoors in Oxford Street. The Friday Lunchtime Concerts are free of charge.
The Army is well known for it’s social action programmes and the Regent Hall involves itself in helping the homeless each week at it’s Advice Centre which runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays in partnership with the Army’s Outreach Unit at Rochester Row. A soup run leaves the hall every Tuesday night where people are helped in a variety of practical ways.
The Coffee Shop and Christian Book Shop are open every day. Many people use these facilities daily for food and refreshment, as well as appreciating the friendly and quiet atmosphere in the middle of Oxford Street.
The Church itself is widely used by many groups for services, concerts and conferences.
The Business Team at Regent Hall comprises of around 15 staff in various full time and part time roles. More and more people are discovering this lovely venue.
