There are four sections in Boys' Brigade:


Age 5 to 8 years         Tuesdays (term time only) 6.00 - 7.15pm


At this age we seek to build firm foundations, establish a group identity and nurture responsibility. They do lots of different activities which include crafts, music, games, sports, making friends, prayer, and Bible stories. The Anchors programme is organised into six programme zones of Get Active, Get Adventurous, Get Creative, Get into the Bible, Get Involved and Get Learning through which the children have the opportunity to gain awards.

Age 8 to 11 years         Tuesdays (term time only) 6.00 - 7.15pm


Juniors gives older children a chance to build and develop as individuals within the organisation and within their own group (Company). The programme provides challenges, adventure and opportunities to learn and grow. The fun and engaging programme enables the children to work in a team and take more responsibility. The Juniors programme is organised into six programme zones of Get Active, Get Adventurous, Get Creative, Get into the Bible, Get Involved and Get Learning through which the children have the opportunity to gain awards.

Young people get the chance to develop existing skills and learn new ones, through a fun, balanced and challenging programme of activities. Young people are encouraged to have a say and help shape their own programme. They can get involved in anything from helping others in their local community to playing sports, trying out adventure activities or being creative through dance or art – there’s something for everyone! There are also opportunities to go away on camps and residentials, which are often the highlights in the annual programme.
