The Boys’ Brigade is a uniformed Christian youth organisation whose Object is:

“The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.”

The 56th Liverpool meets at Court Hey Methodist Church every Thursday evening at 6:30pm during term time.

We have three sections, aimed at boys of differing ages:-

Anchor Boys:                          Age 5 – 8 years (Reception to Year 3)
Juniors:                                   Age 8 – 11 years (Year 4 to Year 6)
Company Section:                 Age 11-18 years (Year 7 to Year 13)
The Anchors and Juniors programme is based around 5 different zones

  • Body – fit for fun
  • Mind – think and do
  • Spirit – God and me
  • Community – me and my world
  • Creativity – make and do

We play lots of games, make things and learn lots of useful stuff!  We also hear stories from the Bible.  But mainly we have lots of fun and have a chance to meet new friends.

The Company’s programme is based around 3 different zones: Community, Recreation and Skills as well as different aspects of the Christian Faith. In recent months, the Company section has undertaken the following activities:

  • Community – fundraising for the Church Christmas Fayre and JMA, global poverty and the history of the BB
  • Recreation – specific team building activities as well as volleyball, badminton, snooker and table tennis
  • Skills – Origami, mime and drama, building an Easter Scene for the Church, cooking, astronomy and writing a newspaper article

Like the younger boys they have the chance to play games but also to experience new challenges and to have the opportunity to develop a personal Christian faith.

We aim to ensure that every boy will be recognized for their effort and achievement and will have the opportunity to make friends and build trusting relationships.

Every third Sunday in the month is our Church Parade when we take part in the Family Service, which starts at 10:30am.

If you are interested in joining us, or finding out more, please contact Liz Lloyd on 0151 489 8076 or alternatively call in any Thursday evening for a chat
