Boys and Girls Brigades
Brigades are an international organisation all about welcoming children from any walk of life into a safe, friendly and fun environment, where they can gainnew skills, make friends and explore the Christian faith.
Addlestone Girls' and Boys' Brigades have been running since 1930 at our church. Over the years we have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of children and young people through our doors. From learning to play the bugle to learning first aid, from baking bread to making model planes and from group games to group outings - the activities have varied and changed over time but one thing has remained a constant - Brigades have always tried to bring out the best in every girl and boy.
Boys' Brigade is open to boys from any background from ages 5 to 18.
As the boys continue to attend weekly and learn and develop new skills, interests and knowledge, they work towards gaining 'badges' which are a great way to show their achievements.
The age groups are split into Anchor Boys (age 5-8), Junior Boys (age 8-11), Company Section (age 11-15) and Senior Section (age 15-18).
We currently run Anchor Boys on Friday evenings – 6:00pm to 7:15pm. Activities include things such as games, songs, stories, craft and much more.
At the moment we do not run a Junior, Company or Senior section however this could change in the future.
Girls' Brigade is open to girls from any background from ages 5 to 18.
As the girls continue to attend weekly and learn and develop new skills, interests and knowledge, they work towards gaining 'badges' which are a great way to show their achievements.
The age groups are split into Explorers (age 5-8), Juniors (age 8-11), Seniors (age 11-14) and Brigaders (age 14-18).
