Since the earliest days, music has played a crucial role in worship within The Salvation Army. The Songster Brigade (or adult choir) is a modern day continuation of that fine tradition.

The principal role of Hadleigh Temple Songster Brigade is to enhance worship at the Temple and bring others into a deeper relationship with the Saviour.

Each member of the brigade is a Salvation Army soldier, making them an active and committed member of this church. When not worshiping or rehearsing at the Temple, songsters juggle family and work lives, just like anybody else, with members ranging from students to the retired and just about everything in between!

The Songsters rehearse on a Wednesday evening from 8:15 to 10:00 pm. Why not spare an hour or so and come to listen? You’ll be most welcome; you may even want to join in with the fellowship.

During the month of August, the group is enhanced by our Summer Songsters when we invite members of our congregation to join with us in presenting music on a Sunday in both of our morning and evening services. The only stipulation is that we ask you to attend rehearsals during the month of July to prepare and rehearse the music to be presented. In addition, you are invited to sing at each of our monthly Praise nights – usually the evening service on the last Sunday of each month.

May God bless you!
