Volunteer with The Salvation Army 2018-05-28T09:41:28+00:00

The Salvation Army Barrhaven relies heavily on volunteers to provide the programs and services our community needs. If you would like to volunteer, please contact our Ministry Centre at (613) 440-7555 and speak to someone about getting involved.


The Salvation Army recognizes that the church is no stranger to abuse, and understands the emotional and spiritual damage resulting from abuse. We are committed to the protection of children, youth and vulnerable persons by establishing these clear prevention strategies.

If you are interested in working with children, youth or vulnerable persons you are required to complete the necessary documents and submitted a valid Police Check, as well as enrol and complete necessary training through our ‘ARMATUS learn to protect SYSTEM’.

Below you will find links to enable you to enrol and log in to the training courses. If you have any questions along the way, contact the Program Administrator at sandi.vangulik@salvationarmyottawa.ca. You may also contact Praesidium technical support at support@praesidiuminc.com or 817-801-7773.

Small Groups

Are you interested in opening your home for a small number of friends to come one evening a week to do life with? We are looking for small group host who are willing to do such. If you are interested in becoming a host for small groups, please contact Stephan Savage or Captain Jim Mercer.


Do you have some time to pray, send a card or make a phone call? Do you have a passion for others? If so our shepherding team is looking for members who will help oversee the flock. We are looking for people to help pray, encourage and stay connected with 6-8 people. If this is something that is of interest to you, please contact Major Frank Dixon or Captain Jim Mercer.

Prison Family Ministry

We are looking for some volunteers who are willing to bring family members, in The Salvation Army Barrhaven van, of the incarcerated to the Kingston area. This would require a trip maybe once every three months and some training is provided. If you have a Saturday free every 3-4 months and would like to help families stay connected, please contact Captain Jim Mercer for further details.
