Working Hours



Since 1883, The Salvation Army has fought poverty and social and spiritual distress in New Zealand. They’ve been there to help more than 120,000 families and individuals in need each year—with budgeting advice, food and clothing assistance, life skills programmes and other comfort and support. The Salvation Army are committed to their mission of caring for people, transforming lives and reforming society. They work hard to provide better options in life and a helping hand towards a brighter future for families and individuals who ask for help.

In Alexandra the services the Salvation Army provides include running the second hand retail store, food bank and community garden.

A volunteer is needed to undertake handiwork around the church buildings on an as required basis.  All tools and materials supplied.  Only for minor repair works, any majors are undertaken by paid qualified tradespeople.

  • Experience in undertaking building repairs with the skills and ability to do a nice tidy job.
  • Fit and mobile enough to undertake lifting and physical activity at your own pace. 
  • Personable, polite, respectful, honest, reliable.

A police vetting check may be required.
