Boys’ Brigade is a uniformed organisation for all boys of primary and secondary school age, meeting on Thursday nights for fellowship, learning and sports (mainly football).
The objective of BB is “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.” (Taken from www.boys-brigade.co.uk)
This is to be achieved by the structured teaching of scripture in partnership with the main body of the church, badge classes wherein the boys will have the opportunity to learn new skills and assume leadership roles, and promoting respect and good will towards one another through fellowship and good sportsmanship.
