The songsters (choir) are a group of people who meet each Thursday evening to rehearse songs for worship on Sunday. The group is made up of men and women of all ages and from all walks of life - including teachers, nurses, salesmen and those who are retired. They have a common love of singing and a desire to tell others about the Lord through their music.
Although the songsters have been singing and making music in Sale for twenty years, their history goes back much further to when the church was situated in Manchester. Over the years the choir has travelled up and down the British Isles peforming in many churches and Salvation Army centres and have made a number of excellent recordings. For the past seven years the songsters have been led by Christine Wilkinson, a retired primary school teacher.
Most of the music the Songsters use is published by the Salvation Army but it includes a number of contemporary songs from well-known Christian writers as well as more “home grown” material. Although the majority of songster members are uniformed Salvationists, everyone is welcome to come along and join in with them at practices and we’d be glad to welcome you one Thursday evening at 7.15pm!
