On Tuesday evenings we run our Girls and Boys Brigades.

These are Christian, uniformed groups for those aged from 5 to 18.

The Boys Brigade’s statement of purpose is :

The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among boys and the promotion of obedience, reverence, discipline, self-respect and all that tends towards and true Christian manliness.

Its motto is:

Sure and Steadfast

which is from the Bible, the book of Hebrews, chapter 6, verse 19.

The Girls Brigade’s aim is:

to help girls to become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ and through self control, reverence and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life.

Its motto is

Seek, Serve and Follow Christ

We meet on Tuesday evenings in term time in age groups as below, in the church hall in The Gullet

Schools years Times
Reception to year 3 5.oo to 6:15pm
Years 3 to 6 6:30 to 8.oopm

There are various times when we meet with other brigades locally or in the region for larger events or competitions and there is also the chance for the older ones to go to camp each summer.

And each year we hold a celebration evening to recognise the efforts and achievements of the youngsters and leaders.

We encourage all our children and youth to discover and follow Jesus.
