Easter Sunday Open Air

This morning we were able to share the good new of Easter alongside the crosses outside our hall as a witness to those passing by.

Thine be the Glory
Risen conquering Son
Endless is the victory
Thou o’er death has won

Easter 2017

“Do not be alarmed. You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified.
He has risen! He is not here! See the place where they laid Him.”

Tribute: Arthur Greaves

Arthur GreavesArthur Greaves first came into contact with the Salvation Army when he met Alf Wileman in 1939, in Shepshed, Leicestershire, where they were both evacuated to from Sheffield. Arthur used to go to the Army open-air and barrack them. Alf befriended him because they were both from Sheffield and he eventually persuaded Arthur to come back to meeting. After a week or two of attending the meetings he was converted. From then on he attended all the meetings and the Corps Cadets and he joined in whenever the young people were involved in anything. Alf taught Arthur to play tenor horn whilst at Shepshed, where he stayed until the end of the War. He then linked up with the Army upon his return to Sheffield, where he worked in the steelworks.

At the Citadel on Cross Burgess Street, Arthur spent a little time in the Junior Band before transferring to the Senior Band. He married Joan at the Citadel in the early 1950s. Arthur was a member of the Band for about 42 years, exclusively on the 2nd horn section – his ‘run up’ in the march The Canadian was always eagerly anticipated! Arthur went to Finland on the Band’s first overseas tour in 1966 and carried out many years sterling service as the band’s librarian (and also on the Kop at Bramall Lane, where he was renowned for berating both opposition players and referees alike. ‘Tha looks like tha’s been shipwrecked o’er a barrel’ was one of his well-known insults!)

Arthur spent the last few years of his life in a nursing home and so, sadly, was only able to come to worship at the Citadel occasionally.  He died in early February and is remembered fondly by so many.  A faithful servant, promoted to glory.

The Salvation Army Band prescribes dose of carolling to kids at Sheffield Children’s Hospital

The Salvation Army Band prescribes dose of carolling to kids at Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Children staying at Sheffield Children’s Hospital over Christmas will be getting a musical treat on Monday 19 December when members of the Sheffield Citadel Salvation Army Band perform especially for them.

From 6pm a group of musicians is set to tour the wards, playing traditional carols and Christmas songs to the young patients, their families, friends and hospital staff during the two hour visit to the hospital at Western Bank, Sheffield S10 2TH.

TSA Sheffield Citadel Band Secretary, Rona Treeby said: “For me, this visit is the absolute highlight of our Christmas schedule, something every band member really looks forward to.

“We manage to get around most of the wards, including intensive care; provided the patients aren’t asleep and we’re not going to disturb them. For lots of the children it’s the first time they’ve seen a live band and they’re usually curious about how the instruments work and where the sound comes from.

“I think it helps them forget about their illness or injury while we’re there and it gets them really excited about Christmas which is just lovely to see and be a part of.”

The Salvation Army Sheffield Citadel Band starts its Christmas carolling rounds through Sheffield Children’s Hospital in S2 ward at 6pm on Monday 19 December and plans to stop off and perform on as many wards as possible during the visit which will last approximately two hours.

Musicians from Sheffield Citadel’s band, youth band and choir have been playing festive songs across the city since late November.  So far, they’ve performed for rush hour commuters at Sheffield Station and Christmas shoppers in Sheffield city centre, among other appearances.

They’re now gearing up to play even more shows at various venues — including care homes and homeless hostels — on their mission to share the joy of Christmas with as many people as possible.
