It is my great pleasure as Bandmaster, to
welcome you to the new website of the Bellshill Salvation Army
Band as we mark the beginning of a new era in the band’s
Following 20 years as Bandmaster, Ian Dickie retired from that
position at the beginning of 2013, passing on what is without
doubt an extremely precious and exciting legacy to myself. It is
with unquestionable commitment, joy and humility that I assume
that position, endeavouring to ensure that at all times, God is
glorified through our service.
Bellshill Band was formed in 1921 and has consistently supported
and enhanced the worship and ministry of the Corps. The present
band maintains a busy and effective schedule presenting the
gospel in its musical ministry within the Corps and through Open
Air witness, visits to local churches, participation in
divisional/territorial meetings and visits to other Army
The band personnel reflect various walks of life and also hold a wide
range of Local Officer positions within the Corps.
As the band looks forward with optimism to the opportunities for
witness, I would encourage you to follow the ministry of the
band via our website, praying that you will be blessed,
challenged and inspired.
