Farewell

SCB are sad to say farewell to Major Kenny Gardner as he and his wife Major Alison, move to Grimsby this week to take responsibility for the Corps there.

We’ve enjoyed sharing in fellowship with Major Kenny these past couple of years and have appreciated his service through his banding – the trombone section won’t sound quite the same without him.  We will miss his contribution to our fellowship but wish him well as he moves on to new avenues of service, and hope to see him at Band practice on occasion in the future.

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.
