Newbiggin by the Sea Salvation Army Band
The Corps Brass Band commenced in 1916 and continues to spread the Christian message through music. The Band supports worship every Sunday and is often requested to provide music at various locations and community events in the area.
Christmas is a very busy time for the Band! We visit local towns such as Alnwick and Blyth, as well as Newbiggin by the Sea to spread the Christmas message. The Band also visits local homes for the elderly and local prisons.
The Band has produced some notable musicians in its long history. A number of bandsmen and woman, from the Corps, serve in other Salvation Army Bands throughout the country.
The band practice on alternate Thursdays commencing at 7.30pm.
Newbiggin by the Sea Salvation Army Songsters
Newbiggin by the Sea Salvation Army Songster Brigade, or choir, commenced in 1930, and has strived to share the gospel message through song. The Songsters have visited and supported numerous Churches, other Salvation Army Corps, open-air worship and musical events throughout its long history.
In recent years the Songsters have appeared on local radio and like the Band support events in the local community, particularly at Christmas time.
A number of Songsters from the Corps now serve in other Songster Brigades throughout the country.
The Songsters practice on alternate Thursdays at 7.30pm.
