The Boys' Brigade (BB) provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 5 to 18 years old. Crammed full of fun activities, challenges and games, our weekly meetings aim to provide boys with the opportunity to make new friends, explore new interests and develop existing ones, learn more about the Christian Faith and, most of all, have fun! In doing this, boys will gain badges and awards throughout their time in the company, ensuring their hard work is recognised and rewarded. In working towards the Object of the Boys' Brigade - "The advancement of Christ's Kingdom among Boys and Young People and the promotion of habits of obedience, reverence, discipline and self-respect and all that tends toward a true Christian manliness" - we hope our boys will learn valuable life skills, helping them to succeed in whatever they choose to do.
