Young People’s Band

The Young People’s Band is a group of Christian musicians aged between seven and 18 who play brass instruments and take part every Sunday during the 5pm service.

The young people have recently enjoyed visits to Sunderland, Tunstall, Essington, Mansfield, Wisbech, Consett, Guisborough and Sale, where they presented their music and a Christian message. Each Christmas, the Band takes part in ‘Christmas with The Salvation Army’ at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.

Robert Hayward, together with his team of leaders –  Callum White, Mark Pearson and Matthew Frost – encourage and guide the young people on their Christian journeys.  The band also has a wider support network of people who train, pray for and encourage each member led by former YP Band Leader Keith Watts. Keith’s learners training programme has been so successful it has been adopted by the Music Editorial Team and is available through The Salvation Army Retail outlet SP&S.
