Band

The purpose of the Felixstowe Salvation Army Band is to ‘Serve the Present Age’ by using brass instruments to spread the gospel message. It provides music to accompany and enhance our worship. The band’s music ranges from simple hymn tunes to the more taxing and  demanding works produced by today’s Salvation Army composers.

Every Sunday the band plays music to witness to the many hundreds of people who pass by the open-air service on the Triangle in the centre of the town.
The band takes part in many local events such as the Remembrance Day Service, the switching on of the Christmas lights and United Church Services. Every year the band provides the music for the Aldeburgh Carnival Songs of Praise and shares in an open air service at Orford Castle.

 

Over the years the Felixstowe Band has travelled widely both in this country and overseas. There has been a Salvation Army band in Felixstowe since 1888.The current band has 25 members under the leadership of Bandmaster John Pilborough. Rehearsals take place on Wednesday evenings and are held in the hall in Cobbold Road.

Daily Proverb

Proverbs 11:16

A woman who is full of grace is honoured, but a woman hating righteousness is a seat of shame: those hating work will undergo loss, but the strong keep their wealth.
