"To seek, serve and follow christ"
Girls’ Brigade is a Christian youth organisation for girls of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. We offer a programme of fun activities for girls, designed to educate, challenge and inspire along with Christian teaching that is relevant and meaningful to girls today.
Our aim is to help girls to become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, through self control, reverence and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life.
Girls are grouped into sections according to age:
Explorers: Age 3 (by 1st July) to 7 years
Juniors: Age 8 – 10 years

Girls can join our Company at any time but the best time is at the start of the season in September.
Boys’ Brigade is a Christian youth organisation for boys of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. We offer a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 3 to 18 years old. The resources have been developed to help our volunteer youth leaders work in a relevant and creative way. We hope through these programmes we will be able to make a positive contribution to a young person’s life and be able to share their faith.
Our aim is to see “the advancement of Christ’s kingdom among boys and the promotion of habits of obedience, reverence, discipline, self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.”

Anchor Boys: 5 – 8 years (P1 – P4)

Meet with others; ask the big questions. Laugh a lot, make friends, do some exciting stuff in our city, talk about God, explore your faith.
Youth Fellowship (YF) is our programme for 11-18 year olds and is a great place for making friends, thinking about faith, having fun and discovering God. Every other Sunday night we meet at 7:45pm for about an hour and a half to hang out, mess about, talk, learn, worship and sometimes pray.
At YF we realise there is more to life than just going to school, getting a job, a nice house, getting married and then getting old! THERE’S JUST GOTTA BE! So we want to find out more, to start living with a true purpose and discovering the exciting life that God intends for us. There’s a God who loves us and wants the best for us.
Come along on a Sunday evening to see what it’s all about.
A vibrant space for any young person Year 8+ to hang out, build relationships with each other and the team and just have some fun!
