Covid-19 UPDATE...

Girls’ Brigade will start back in September, initially with virtual meetings and we’ll review the situation at regular intervals according to GB Scotland guidance in order to give our girls and leaders the best and safest experience. We can still welcome new members. Message us on Facebook or email gb11ed@blueyonder.co.uk if you are interested.

Normal service details...

The Girls' Brigade is a Christian uniformed organisation providing activities to help girls attain educational, physical, mental and spiritual maturity, with the motto: "Seek, Serve and Follow Christ"

Girls' Brigade is a Christian organisation and part of each meeting involves Bible story time and worship. We also do loads of games and crafts. We do lots of other things too like singing, baking, helping other people and learning about our world.

The 11th Edinburgh and Lothians Girls' Brigade company meets on Tuesday evenings during term time in the Church Hall.

Girls meet together each week as a group to work through a programme of activities suited to their age and ability.

Juniors...

Girls aged 8, 9 or 10 on 1st July can join the GB Junior section. Juniors are good ‘joiners’ and in this section girls channel their physical energy and competitive spirit, alongside stimulating the girls’ imagination and satisfying their curiosity.

Each company will choose to do different activities but here's the kind of thing many Juniors enjoy at GB:

- Learning about Jesus
- Lots of sport
- Arts & craft
- Swimming
- Drama
- Singing
- First Aid
- Competitions
- Quizzes
- Cooking
- Dancing
- Making friends

Awards

Juniors can earn badges for their efforts at GB, including a reward system for attendance and Junior Circle badges for completing different challenges in 4 areas: Spiritual, Physical, Educational and Service.

Uniform

In Girls' Brigade we wear uniform because it enables equality and promotes a sense of belonging - all the girls look the same irrespective of background.

The other sections meet at the same time so that they can share common elements of the programme, such as games, crafts, devotions, etc. The rest of the evening is spent following a syllabus of spiritual, physical, educational and service subjects.

From time to time, special events and competitions are organised for the companies in Edinburgh Division or in Scotland.

Why not visit us and see if GB is the organisation for you! Come along, and bring your friends to help us grow GB in Scotland.
