Sadly I think the church might be half-empty for the service this year - people really do feel that strongly about it.'Onward, Christian Soldiers is a 19th-century English hymn which was adopted by the Salvation Army as its favourite processional.
The words were written by Sabine Baring-Gould in 1865, and the music composed by Arthur Sullivan in 1871.
I have been going to Remembrance Services in Oadby since 1967, and Onward, Christian Soldiers has been sung ever year apart from one.'That was a few years ago, when another vicar tried to ban it.There was uproar then, and there is uproar now.'I'm disgusted, to be honest.In this free christian chat you can discuss many topics, such as: religious chat, bible chat, jesus chat, singles chat, and generally any christian chat you wish.Here we try to run one of the best free christian chat rooms and religious chat room on the internet.The whole thing is quite upsetting really.'Mr Green, 71, added: 'Every year we lay our wreathes in Oadby, then walk half-a-mile or so to the church and walk in to Onward, Christian Soldiers.
