Hadleigh Temple Band has a long history of commitment from its members to use its music as a means of bringing people into a knowledge of Jesus Christ and his salvation.
William Booth, founder of The Salvation Army, was not a particularly great lover of brass bands, but he recognised their worth in attracting listeners to follow the band when they marched into meetings. Additionally, he appreciated the lively accompaniment they provided for congregational singing. We feel that the use of Hadleigh Temple Band’s music would please General Booth!
The band is a vehicle of Christian expression, with a strong conviction of using its abilities in a multitude of ways, all with the ultimate purpose of introducing people to their Saviour,
