Church

We are united in knowing Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour, and are discovering together that Jesus brings meaning, purpose and joy to our world as we learn to know him, love him and serve him.

Music

Singing Group We are a group of lively young people aged between seven and eighteen who form the junior choir within the church. The aims of the group are as follows: 

To sing Christian songs about God and his love for us  To contribute to the services each week by assisting the congregation in worshipping God.  To learn how to sing to the best of our ability!  To have fun!

The group meets every Tuesday evening and practice for one hour. During this time songs are rehearsed, one of the group will lead a Bible reading and every practice ends with a prayer time when the prayer book is read out. (During the practice, anyone who wants to, will write prayers in the book - looking back through it, it is amazing how many God has answered!) 

The Singing Company will always try to make their music as relevant as possible - sometimes there will be a Bible reading with the song. Other times there may be dance, or projector slides to enhance the message within the song. There have even been a couple of occasions when party poppers and kazoos have been used to liven up songs of celebration! 

If you are between the age of seven and eighteen and would be interested in learning more about the group, or would like to come along on a Tuesday evening, please contact us.

Youth Band

The Youth band consists of young people who enjoy playing brass band instruments. We play a variety of instruments and take part in the worship services at church. We practice once a week and enjoy our time together learning our instruments. Many of the young people take part in music schools in the summer months where they meet up with other Salvation Army musicians from all over the country. Most of the young people then progress to the senior band when old enough. We are also grateful for those in the senior band who spend valuable time, not only in a musical sense, by giving encouragement and guidance to the young people when needed. 

If you are between the age of seven and eighteen and would be interested in learning more about the group, or would like to come along on a Thursday evening, please contact us.

Leicester South Band

Leicester South Band has a fine history of service to the church fellowship and the community spanning over one hundred years. The members of the current band are eager to maintain this tradition. Over the years the band has visited many Salvation Army centres throughout the British Isles as well as two visits to France and Germany. In 1995 an ensemble from the band undertook a tour of Ghana which was an exciting experience and added yet another chapter to the band's history. Wherever the band is it's mission is the same, to proclaim the gospel message. The current Bandmaster is John Broadhurst. John has held various positions within the corps at Leicester South including several years as Songster (choir) leader. John is now retired after being Head of Music at a large school in the City of Leicester. 

If you would like Leicester South Band to feature in any of your events, then please feel free to contact us:enquiries@leicestersouthsa.org.uk

Leicester South Songsters

Leicester South Songsters have been in existence since 1904, but their first century was spent under the corps' former name of Leicester Castle. However, in 2005, the corps relocated to the south of the city of Leicester and, at this exciting time, came a name change to Leicester South. The group is made up of members from many walks of life who have an interest in making music as a way of praising and worshipping God. Within the group they have medical staff, teachers, bankers, sales personnel, students, administration staff, engineers, postal workers, as well as some who have retired from full-time employment. Most members of the group have been brought up in The Salvation Army, but others have joined fairly recently. No matter how long individual members may have served within the Army, their mission as a group remains the same - to aid worship by creating an atmosphere that enables people to feel nearer to God. 

If you would like Leicester South Songsters to feature in any of your events, then please feel free to contact us:enquiries@leicestersouthsa.org.uk
