Who are we?
We are part of a bigger girls’ brigade family. The group is run by volunteer leaders who love working with girls and young women, seeing them make friends, learn new skills, achieve, have fun , and learn more about Jesus week by week.
What kind of things do we do?
We have 4 age categories
n:vestigat – 4-7s
n:gage – 8-10s
Each age group follows their own appropriate program materials, which are themed. All the girls and young women work towards
badges to celeberate their achievements.
The program is really varied and includes things like craft, games, discussions, singing, fundraising, bible stories, drama, dancing, faith e
faith explorations, competiton, new skills, and much much more!!
As well as our regular meeting nights throughout the year we alos have a number of sleepovers, outings, special church
services, BBQs, award nights, and camps.
So look out for letters home when something is being planned, especially as some events are suitable for all the family!
When and where do we meet?
Upcoming taster sessions- Wednesday 12th July, 6:30 to 7:30PM. Regular meeting nights will start from September 2023 : Wednesdays-6:30-7:30PM at Upney Baptist Church.
Want to join?
GB is a uniformed organisation and we believe this is important as it helps our members to feel they belong, as well as ensuring we look smart on special ocassions and when we go out.
The basic uniform is GB polo shirt Black or Navy trousers or skirt (jeans are OK on a Wednesday night) GB V necked sweatshirt, fleece, or hoodie
Trainers on a Wednesday night and black shoes for special occasion.
All the GB uniforms can be ordered directly from Girls’ Brigade via www.girlsbrigadetrading.com
If you have any questions, then please ask us before ordering we would be happy to help.
What does it cost?
We charge a set amount to cover the cost of our activities eg. craft equipment, offer discounts on outings, provide refreshments, and to cover insurance. We charge every member £15 a term.
Please note that this money needs to be paid at the start of each term by bank transfer to the group bank account.
If you have a financial problem then please speak to us .We would hate to see a girl or young women missing out.
What do we expect from you?
We want all our members to have fun and love GB so please can they wear their uniform smartly and correctly, attend regularly, attend any special church services, and be punctual and reliable.
Who looks after the GB members?
All leaders are trained volunteers, have DBS checks, and have first -aid training.
