Boys Brigade

1st Waringstown Boys’ Brigade is a Christian organisation linked to Waringstown Presbyterian Church and Holy Trinity Church Waringstown.

We aim to provide a safe environment for boys of all ages, backgrounds and abilities and offer a varied programme of fun and adventure designed to educate, challenge and inspire.

Anchor Boys (p2-p4): Anchors have a programme based on five areas; body, mind, spirit, community and creativity.  The emphasis is on fun and activities include games, crafts, stories and opportunities to learn and share in new experiences.

Junior Section (p5-p7): The Juniors programme provides challenges, adventure and opportunities to learn and grow.  Fun and engaging activities enables boys to work in a team and take more responsibility. Juniors also get the opportunity to go on outings and residential trips, and for some this will be their first night away from home. Throughout their time in Juniors, boys can gain badges and recognition for their participation.

Company and Senior Sections (yr8+): These young men get the chance to develop existing skills and learn new ones, through a fun, balanced and challenging programme of activities. They’re encouraged to have a say and help shape their own programme. There are also opportunities to go on camping trips and participate in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Other BB awards can also be gained including the Presidents and Queens Badges.

OPPORTUNITY: We URGENTLY need additional leaders in all BB sections.  If you think you can assist in any way this would be greatly appreciated! Please contact the church office on 02838 882654
