Welcome to a very special Praise and Testimony meeting prepared for Fortress Radio.

This is the 47th meeting prepared and presented by Marc Harry since the Covid pandemic began over a year ago.

Some great hymns and songs, Salvation Army choruses, band, songster and singing company items and even more - including words of personal witness, bible readings and prayers.

Just like being 'at the Army!

Let your light shine for Jesus wherever you go and a theme for this meeting might be "Take Jesus to all the world...He'll put things right.

For the 46th in my series of Salvation Meetings for Fortress Radio. I am delighted to welcome my old friend Lt Col. Ced Hills who speaks on the subject of the Ascension.
The meeting is a bit of a 'Portsmouth Citadel Reunion'. Ced sat next to me on the euphonium section at Portsmouth when he was our CO a decade or so ago and we became good friends. So both Portsmouth Citadel Band ( John Hanchett) and Songsters (Julie Wheeler) take part in this meeting as well as there being some fine congregational songs and there are also contributions from the International Staff Songsters, Exeter Temple Singing Company (Jane Cox Williams) and the Birmingham Citadel Contemporary Music Group.

The 45th in the series of Salvation Meetings I have prepared for Fortress Radio sees a rare (for me) departure into the Old Testament and one of the great prophets - Ezekiel and his vision of the Mega-Temple.

I was led to quote earlier in my preparations: "Discussing Ezekiel's everso vivid prophecies with burning chariots and spinning wheels and dry bones reforming I question what medications he was taking and say "I'll have what Ezekiel's on!"

In all seriousness, though, this story is the only time 'Healing Waters' are mentioned in the whole of the Old Testament - and we live, today, very much in a world that needs that Divine Healing.

The meeting has a Living/Healing Waters theme and contains some grand old Salvation Army songs in old and newer arrangements including a beautiful vocal solo from Kaytie Harding.

Music comes from Boscombe SA Band, Staines Songsters and the (now sadly defunct) East London Youth Chorus.

May God bless you all and bring you nearer to Him as you listen to this podcast.

Dare To Be a........Thomas?


The disciple Thomas sometimes gets a bit of a rough ride, I think. His reputation and legacy seems to be based on nothing but his 'doubting' - and hence his name has been used for millennia as the epitome of scepticism!
Join me for the Salvation Meeting on Fortress Radio where we look at so much more that we can learn from Thomas - enough that, instead of Daniel for a change, might not some of us even 'Dare to be a Thomas'?

Music from the ISB, Portsmouth Citadel Songsters, Wealdstone Singing Company (1970) and much more - plus, of course, some great songs and a brand new poem by Commissioner Harry Read.
Plus songs and the message - of course.

This Easter Day Salvation Meeting is very much a celebration of the Risen Christ - and it's great to be able to welcome Colonel Phil Maxwell (who delivers the sermon), his wife Deslea who also speaks and my friend Matt Woods as well.

When Col Maxwell sent a vocal solo to accompany his message he got Matt's name slightly wrong (Mark instead of Matt) and it was only when I listened to the beautiful voice I realised that it was young Matthew at once, of course!

Join me then, for some of the great Easter hymns and songs, songsters, singing company, soloist and one of the all time great Dean Goffin classics from the band.

'Meditative Music and Readings for a Holy Day'

is, for today, a BRAND NEW episode of the "Going to the Army!" podcast - especially for Good Friday.

This is not a 'normal' GttA episode but a complete 'act of worship' - subtitled a:

'Meditative Music and Readings for a Holy Day' the 2 hour programme I have prepared with the help of the wonderful Jeannine Ridha has music by Salvation Army Bands and Songster Brigades, Singing Companies, Soloists and a even Rock Group.

Although the programme will be aired on Fortress Radio several times today it will be, necessarily, broken up by news bulletins - for complete, uninterrupted listening please use the podcast link here.

Readings are taken from dramatic presentations, poems and, of course, the Bible itself. Joining me with these dramatic readings is prominent Lincolnshire actress Jeannine Ridha who has strong links to Grimsby SA and has a career in musicals and other stage shows spanning 50 years.

Immerse yourself in the Good Friday experience and join me. God bless you all.

Symptoms of life that we just have to live with in 2021? Or is there a solution?
Peter gives us the answer in the last Chapter of his First Epistle - and comes up with 'one of the best verses in the whole bible'!
This week's Salvation Meeting - the 42nd meeting I have produced since the start of the pandemic and marking a whole year of online ministry - is the last in our series looking at Peter's 1st letter.
Some great congregational song arrangements to join in with, a Joy Webb classic, one of the best of all Gowans/Larsson songs of all, a classic cornet solo and much more to enjoy and inspire.
Music from the International Staff Songsters, Philip Cobb, Portsmouth Singing Company, the TMS Ladies Voices Group, The Joystrings and many more adds to the worship and reinforcement of the meeting's theme - casting all our cares on Jesus - because He cares for us.
There's also a strong challenge to us all...so beware! It could be dangerous going to church! You never know what God might change!

This week's SALVATION MEETING for Fortress Radio is the 40th in the series I have prepared since the first lockdown almost a year ago. This time we take a look at part of 1 Peter ch 3 and try to apply the advice there to our lives at this specific time.
Major Estelle Blake opens in prayer, there is a fine testimony from SL Paul Dale (one of my oldest and best friends) and some great Army songs and choruses, band pieces and songs from the songsters - including some Gowans and Larsson classics and a modern masterpiece from Andrew Maycock.
Featuring the Staff Songsters, musicians from a Scottish Congress, the Sunbury Junior Singers ,William Booth Memorial Halls Band and soloist Eric Tebbett.

"My time, matey, not yours!" - is what God told me very clearly earlier this week as I was growing impatient for inspiration!

This is the 39th meeting I have prepared for FORTRESS RADIO since the Covid lockdowns began in March 2020

This meeting is the third in the series based on the 1st Epistle of Peter - this time -chapter 2.  How can we best be 'walking advertisements' for Jesus in this evil world?

If you like some of the GREAT Salvation Army songs then this one's for YOU!

Plus music from the Amsterdam Staff Band, International Staff Band and Songsters, Croydon Citadel Songsters, Portsmouth Citadel Singing Company...and more besides!

Thoughts are centred around Major Darren Shaw's wonderful 'Guardian of My Soul'
