Boys' Brigade
The Boys' Brigade has been around for more than 110 years and is part of the boyhood experience of many adults. Our function is to serve today's young people. The Founder, Sir William Alexander Smith, set out the object of the brigade being "The Promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness" and that has not been changed.

The Boys' Brigade develops a boy's awareness of his own community and creates opportunities for service.
The Boys' Brigade develops latent leadership qualities so that boys become contributors to the life of their community - not just takers.
The Boys' Brigade encourages boys to get involved in their Company, their Church and the community, and this involvement means taking responsibility for what happens.
The Boys' Brigade does not confine itself to well motivated and properous young people. It offers support and interest to the less fortunate and recognises the value of adult interest as young people develop.
The Boys' Brigade is staffed by unpaid officers with only a small core of full time staff. The officers give of their time to provide the activities within our local unit - the Company, which itself is part of the local Church.
