Tuesday 30th June
The Chicago Staff Band visited Croydon and presented an evening of music and testimony.
The band arrived from an afternoon visit to Buckingham Palace and enjoyed a tea with entertainment by some of the members from Croydon Salvation Army’s junior choir (The Singing Company).
The band opened the evening with the march The Witness and then proceeded during the evening to communicate the message of God’s love and the reality of God in their lives.
Being a staff band the music was excellent, featuring the solos Jublilance for Cornet, The Better World, Czardas, Now I belong to Jesus and Journey into Peace played and sung by Peggy Thomas, Shaun Thomas, Paul Bowyer, Meredith Thomas and Brett Tolcher.
The testimony from Major Tim Meyer was a highlight for many in the audience.
Thank you to the men and women from the Chicago Staff Band for your visit to Croydon.
