Earthly farewells to two dear friends

Next week we will say our earthly farewells to two of our dear friends at the corps. On Tuesday 19th, 4:15pm at Beckenham crematorium and later at the hall at 7pm, we will share our thanks and also our sadness with the family of Commissioner Alan Coles who was recently Promoted to Glory. And then on Thursday 21st, 3:30pm at Kemnal Park the funeral will take place of Commissioner Margaret du Plessis. Margaret's family are making arrangements for this to be live streamed and so shortly before the service is due to start we will post a link for those who would like to join us. May God comfort the bereaved.

Double Helping

Bromley Salvation Army held two carol concerts, one after the other on Sunday 16th December.

Guest trumpet soloist, Chris Deacon, played several pieces, including Sweet Little Jesus Boy and O Holy Night; the Songsters sang Wolfgang’s Christmas Canon and You are the Light; the Singing Company sang Let There be Peace on Earth and Come On, Ring Them Bells. The Community Choir also took part, bringing Winter Wonderland and Christmas Hallelujah. 

The senior band and piano accompanied several traditional carols. We also had a visit from The Crooners who sang All I Want for Christmas is You!!  

The hall was full to capacity for both carol concerts with many attending The Salvation Army in Bromley for the first time.  

Proceeds from the collections, totalling £1200, went to Mission Care, a south London charity with five residential and nursing homes.

United in Song

Bromley Temple Corps welcomed St Mark’s Church and Choir into their hall for a united service.  St Mark’s Choir sang two songs: John Rutter’s “God be in My Head”; the other: “O, Praise the Lord”.

Bromley Songsters sang: “Hymn to the Conqueror” and then joined with St Mark’s Choir to sing Darren Shaw's piece: “Guardian of My Soul”. 

....  And, as I reach the hill of Calvary

and see Your open arms,

I’ll know my name and where I’m going,

Guardian of my soul


Bromley Band participated by playing the Maori lullaby: “Hine e Hine”. 

It was a wonderful evening of music which left both the choirs and congregation united in God’s love and song.
