As a result of the vicar's decision I'm refusing to enter the church.
I have been going to Remembrance Services in Oadby since 1967, and Onward, Christian Soldiers has been sung ever year apart from one.
If it isn't broke, don't fix it.'I have been attending that service since I was a child, and can always remember it being sung. 'This year for the first time Oadby Multicultural Group will be laying a wreath at the War Memorial as well as the one I will lay on behalf of the parish and we do want people of all faiths who are paying respect to those from their own faiths and cultures who served and gave their lives, to feel welcome in the service.'I understand that the British Legion branch is now discussing their Social Club members' complaints with the individuals who raised them.'I am happy to discuss the matter with them as well as to provide reassurance that the Remembrance Service in the church remains a Christian service and one in which everyone can feel welcome.'In 2012 another newly appointed vicar decided the hymn should not be sung at the Remembrance Service.
Mr Thorpe said: 'There were lots of complaints and it was back the next year.'The Oadby Royal British Legion branch - which is a separate body from the club - has met with the vicar and agreed to Rev Bailey's request to not sing the song this year.
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.
This music originated in the Southern United States and some even called it “white gospel” to distinguish it from “black gospel”.
