Divisional Musical Sections

  • The London North East Fellowship Band

The London North East Divisional Fellowship Band

  • The London North East Fellowship Band was formed to serve all members of the community aged 55 plus. If you play a brass instrument and would like to be part of this friendly, supportive and very active group then please come along to one of our rehearsals. The band is open to anyone aged 55 or over and it is not necessary to be a member of the Salvation Army to join. Rehearsals are Fridays at 1pm at Hadleigh. If you'd like to contact someone from the bands leadership team you can reach Eric Collett at eric.collett@talktalk.net. 

  • If you'd like to know a little more about the history of the band and some of its previous engagements then please download a short history of the band available on the link below:

  •  Divisional Youth Performing Arts

  • Divisional Youth Performing Arts
  • We have two musical groups in the division for young people. These are Straight Ahead our youth choir and our Youth Band. Currently the two groups are on a break as we explore, as a division what it could look like to have a joined up approach to performing arts across the board, encompassing all disciplines. Below is an open letter explaining where we are at the moment and how people can get involved in the future of these groups, and beyond!

Divisional Training Guide

  • Divsional Training Guide

  • The Divisional Training Guide falls in to three main sections:

  • Divisional Training:  Training planned to be held in the Division during 2015

  • Essential Training:  Training that is mandatory for the safe running of our programmes and how to access it

  • Organic Training:  Training that can be offered by the Divisional team to meet the needs identified in your corps and centres. We are happy to come to you and train your teams in situ.

    There is also information about how to access the courses on ilearn for volunteers, employees and officers and contact details for some excellent external training providers.

  • Here in the London North East Division we want to encourage a culture of prayer. To this end we produce resources around a specific prayer focus every six weeks for you to download and use as you see fit. They might be perfect to help you theme your corps prayer room or might be just what you need to give your own personal prayer time more focus.

  • Please feel free to click on the links below to download the current resources:

  • Prayer Leaflet

  • Prayer Postcard

  • A4 Poster

HEDYMAC is the unwieldy acronym for the Herts&Essex Divisional Youth Advisory Council! We hope that this group will be a place where the voice of young people, youth work volunteers and officers (who will make up the group) will speak into divisional youth work and events.

If you are a young person, volunteer youth worker or officer and would like to apply to be a part of this group then please complete the form below and send it back to ben.still@salvationarmy.org.uk. If you'd like more information then just drop Ben an email with your question instead. We look forward to hearing from you!
