SCB are pleased to finally be able to welcome Elizabeth Whelpton into the Band on the horn section. Elizabeth has transferred from our YP Band and we are delighted that she has decided to continue playing within the Senior Band.  We wish her many happy years sharing in service, worship & fellowship with SCB.

South London Fellowship Band

A large crowd at Sheffield Citadel were privileged to hear the South London Fellowship Band who presented a concert on Friday 7th June as part of their tour of the North of England.  Under the direction of Major George Whittingham the band presented a varied programme including old (The Old Wells) and new ( Fantasia for Children) the latter being a fitting choice having been composed by the late Jim Wright a previous Bandmaster at Sheffield Citadel.

The band are fortunate in having excellent soloists in Alan Moyse, Darrell Scholes (cornet) and Adrian Horwood (euphonium) whose playing was greatly appreciated by the congregation.

It was inspiring to see a band whose average age is 68 performing to such a high standard for the glory of God, a testimony to the fact that in God’s service there is no such thing as retirement.

Adieu!

SCB have bid farewell – or perhaps that should be sayonara & au revoir – to two of our student bandsmen. Sam Starling and Ellie Mackereth have been studying at The University of Sheffield for the past 2 years, but they are both now spreading their wings and going further afield for a year: Sam to Tokyo, Japan and Ellie to Lyon, France.

We wish them both well in their year abroad & know that they will have many challenging but enjoyable times there. We look forward to welcoming them back into SCB when they return to Sheffield in September 2014.
