The Boys’ Brigade

The Boys’ Brigade is a Christian youth organisation for Boys between 5 and 18 years of age.  The organisation’s objective is “the Promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness”.

Sounds very grand doesn’t it? Yes it is, but it is also GREAT FUN!

The outside influences surrounding young people are not always helpful, so too many lose control at great cost to themselves, their families and the community. The answer is to catch the energy and enthusiasm of youth and to channel it purposefully. Our programmes are balanced to provide Boys with opportunities to take part in a wide range of activities, learn new skills and develop existing skills.

That’s where the fun comes in.

We have three groups at Viewpark:

  • Anchor Section – for Boys aged 5 to 8 years
  • Junior Section – for Boys aged 8 to 11 years
  • Company Section – for Boys aged 11 to 18 years

If you would like to get involved or just find out more, please contact Jim Penman:

Above all BB is fun, exciting, and safe. Hope to see you soon.
