South Muskoka Ministries is a vibrant expression of the mission of The Salvation Army.  We are a group of people who live out the truth that God is active and alive in our communities.

Bracebridge Community Church is a place to begin forming relationships with people who care and find a community in which we can encounter God together.

Through our emergency assistance, food banks, thrift stores and discipleship initiatives we serve both Bracebridge and Gravenhurst and have been active in the South Muskoka area for 140 years.  Like Jesus who came to “make his dwelling among us” we seek to be active and alive in our own communities.
