The group come together several times throughout the year to lead special events at Salvation Army Corps (churches) across the UK, have featured at The Big Church Day Out and toured Ontario, Canada during Easter 2015. They have a unique approach to their music and presentation, and the weekend promises to be filled with high quality music.

Dean Jones, leader of the Group and Regional Music and Creative Arts Specialist with The Salvation Army said “We are delighted to be travelling to Guernsey and look forward to a great weekend with our friends in the island. We have links with Guernsey, with a long-standing member of the group married to a Guernsey girl and a member who lives in the island. This is a great opportunity to bring our own style of music making and expression of faith to the island.”
