Salvation Army to hold congress next week

The Salvation Army Bermuda is bringing music to its biennial three-day congress to be held next week with the Canadian Staff Songsters choir.

The singing group is the “vocal ministry” for the charity's Canada and Bermuda territory, and will deliver a concert from the steps of City Hall from 2.30pm to 3.30pm on September 27. The territorial commander, Commissioner Susan McMillan, is also coming to the island for the gathering.

The Salvation Army will mark the occasion with a prayer breakfast at its West End Community Church in Somerset at 9am on September 28, with tickets going for $15.

At noon, the charity officially opens the church's extension and community hall.

The Songsters choir will join the Bermuda Divisional Band and the Liturgical Dance Ministry at 7pm at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club.

The next day, the Salvation Army will gather at the hotel at 10am for prayer and songs, followed by an address from Commissioner McMillan.

The Salvation Army will then go to St George's to deliver a celebration of praise at 2.30pm.
