HCB and Choir HCB Open Band Practice 2014

HCB held its 4th annual open band practice  which was an invitation to anyone in the area to come and join with the band for an evening of Christian music and fellowship.  The evening was led by Anthony Thompson who is a Christian professional trumpet player from Castleford Salvation Army corps.

Anthony led the band through diverse style of music which reflected his personal relationship with the Lord. Lord of hopefulness (K. Downie), Just as I am (W. Heaton), and I know thou art mine (L. Ballantine) were some of the highlights of the evening.  Bandsman Graham Mercer (Driffield corps) played Woodland’s Don’t doubt him now. In his devotion, Anthony spoke about God’s love to us and how He can use us to do amazing things for his Kingdom.                     

HCB at Shiptonthorpe All Saints Church

The venue for the Hull Citadel Band on the 5th April was the old (9th century) purpose built All Saints Church in Shiptonthorpe. The invitation came as a result of a bandsman who is a pianist at the church. An appreciative congregation of church members and friends warmly welcomed the band when they started the programme.    HCB and Choir

Chris Dixon (euphonium) presented a well balanced display of “Grandfather’s clock”. The highlight of the vening was the impressive singing of the choir formed only for the occasion which had members who have never sang in public. The choir presented two items which were well appreciated. Bandsman Gordon Robson presented a challenging thought on graciousness of God. A fine evening of music and fellowship concluded with a musical benediction “Celtic Blessing” by Erik Sylfveberg. The evening raised £ 550 for the church building fund and collected some money for the Salvation Army Ministry.
