Just as the stainless steel synonymous with our city of Sheffield is long lasting, so SCB was proud to celebrate our 135th anniversary in 2016, 135 years of music ministry in Sheffield. As the words of the song featured in our signature march Sheffield Citadel say, we’ll stand for Christ, for Christ alone, we as a band have been standing for Christ in Sheffield for some 135 years.   We had a number of special events throughout the year to make the 135th year and we very much hope that those of you who were able to join with us were blessed by your time at the Citadel.

Here’s some more information about our 135th year:

Amidst the tempest and the storm
Where Jesus leads, I’ll follow on
I’ll stand, I’ll stand for Christ the Lord
