The purpose of Sale Salvation Army Band is to ‘Serve the Present Age’ by using brass instruments to spread the Love of God.   We provide music to accompany and enhance our worship. The band’s music ranges from simple hymn tunes & modern day worship songs to the more taxing and demanding works produced by today’s Salvation Army composers.

The band takes part in many local events such as Churches Together Events, Christmas Caroling in the local town centre’s, playing to elderly or poorly people who are unable to leave their homes or come to Church – where possible we will always try to accommodate and attend events.

Over the years the Sale Band has travelled widely both in this country and overseas. There has been a Salvation Army band in Sale for over 20 years and (formally Manchester Citadel) prior to that going back to the 1920’s. The current band has 21 members under the leadership of Bandmaster Edward Reece.

Rehearsals take place on Thursday evenings at 8:30pm and are held in the hall at Ashton Lane.
