You may have noticed Salvation Army bands playing carols at Christmas or marching down the street but the purpose of Salvation Army music is not just for outreach. It is also used for praising, for consecration, as a way to testify, to relate to listeners or just to attract attention!
Hythe Salvation Army Music includes a brass band, songsters (choir), community choir, piano & soloists whose main objective is to help lead the listener to the Gospel message using all the styles mentioned above.
Over the years the groups have all traveled throughout the UK and even abroad; most recently we spent a weekend encouraging our fellow Salvationists in Estonia.
Bandmaster Richard Carroll has been a music leader for 39 years and his enthusiasm for Salvation Army music making is still very evident.
Songster Leader Wesley Carroll took up the baton as Songster Leader in the year 2000. He is also the Musical Director of our Community Choir and provides inspirational musical accompaniment for our singing groups and Sunday Worship.
