In response to the latest Government guidelines and national lockdown, Strawberry Field will be closing at 4pm on Wednesday 4th November and re-opening at 10am on Wednesday 2nd December. We will, however, continue to use the resources of Strawberry Field to serve the vulnerable in our local community.

Our centre may be closed, but we are still here, providing practical support with phone calls, food parcels and 1:1 walks. We will also be going virtual with Zoom sessions, which will include coffee chats, ukulele sessions and prayer groups, as well as having a daily online pause. The Strawberry Field shop is still available online, with international shipping, and our Steps to Work programme will be adapted to continue supporting our trainees.

The Salvation Army is here for you. If you need support, please call us on 0151 252 6130, 9am-5pm, 7 days a week or email We will also be providing regular updates across our social media channels.



Strawberry Field, the iconic site immortalised by John Lennon in The Beatles hit, ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, has opened its iconic red gates to the public for the first time.

Previously the site of a Salvation Army children’s home where the young John Lennon played in the grounds, Strawberry Field now serves as a unique addition to Beatles tourism. The new site is home to an interactive visitor exhibition, café, shop, calm garden spaces for spiritual reflection and - at its heart - a Steps to Work programme for young adults with learning difficulties and other barriers to employment.
