About The Boys’ Brigade

The organisation was founded in 1883 by Sir William Alexander Smith, included in our object are the words “The promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness”.

This object remains the same, what has changed over the years is the method in which it is promoted in our groups week by week.   

Each week The Boys’ Brigade partners local Churches in working with thousands of children & young people, many of whom have no other connection with the Church.

The Boys’ Brigade provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 5 to 18 years old. These resources have been developed to help volunteer leaders work in a relevant and creative way.
