Until recently, Trinity Church also has a Boys' Brigade company. Although a seperate organisation in it's own right, our BB & GB companies often collaberated on events, projects and activties through out the year such as; Celebration evening, Family BBQ, Nativity play, Totton Carnival and the annual Enrolment service.
Unfortunately, the BB company had to formally close at the beginning of 2014 due to the relocation of their Captain due to work. We are currently looking at how we can intergrate boys in to our GB activities without impacting on the special space that GB provides for girls and young women.
Boys in Girls' Brigade !
GB nationally now allows boys to become members of girls brigade and as a company, we are considering starting a boys Explorer section. This is still to be decided but we would intially start with a small group of boys to see how things go. We would run both the boys and girls acitiities at the same time, with some acitvites being joint and some splitting down into all girl or all boy groups. Our long term aim would be to encourge a Boys' Brigade company again in it's own right.
We have a long history of working well together with our former boys brigade company and would like to give the opportuity for boys and young men to take part and join in the fun. If you have any questions or would like to know more please contact Jan McCarthy
The Boys' Brigade Captain, Andrew Ferris and his wife Tracey, are relocating to West Sussex over the summer and we want to thank Andrew for the hard work and time he has given to the running and support of the company in recent years. We wish them both well, hope the house move goes well and that they will stay in touch.
however, this does leave the Company without a BB officer from September and the Church is currently looking into ways in which it can support the Company and it's members.
Please keep it in your prayers and thoughts
