The 'Primary' is the group for children aged 2-6 years old. The Primary group meets every Sunday morning in Sunderland Millfield Salvation Army's general purpose room.

The group meet at 12.00am (to coincide with the start of the Sunday School) and finish around 1.00pm and are a much valued part of the church family. Provided for them is a fully supervised, secure environment where the children can share time together and develop into fine young people and develop the beginnings of their relationship with God.

The Primary do a variety of activities including singing, art and craft and games. The Primary sometimes present items to the adults on occasions such as Christmas or Easter when they are led by the young people at Millfield Salvation Army.
