Providing fun, challenge & adventure for all school-aged males, Boys Brigade trains and empowers young people for effective leading & mission impact in their world today.
With an unashamedly Christian foundation, Boys Brigade has a proven track record for reaching out and providing mentoring programs for boys of all backgrounds, abilities & interests – broadening their horizons and skills with international recognition for their achievements.
BB is first and foremost a training ministry for boys into how to think and live like Christ in their world – regardless of their profession of faith. They become true Christians (Christ-like) when they bear the fruit of Christ (Matt 7:20).
Too much of contemporary youth ministry is about getting young people to make a profession of faith and to fit into ‘church-culture’ – and so like recent research shows, 80% of young people who make a profession of faith in their teens, give it up after high school (suggesting only shallow foundations).
Boys Brigade is about establishing firm foundations (Matt 7:25), long-term, throughout a boy’s life (from 5-6 years old upwards). That is, we have up to 12 years to anchor their faith firmly. Boys Brigade provides a consistent structured approach to developing them for the long term – no other ministry consistently spans children & youth like Brigade does.
Boys Brigade meets at Bullcreek every Wednesday night during the school term and meeting times are as follows:
- Anchors (5-7yr olds) 5:15pm – 6:45pm
