Welcome to Girls’ Brigade Ministries

GB Ministries (GBM) is home to five key initiatives that specialise in enabling this generation of girls, boys and young women to openly explore and engage with real life and Christian faith in a fun, informative and hopeful way.

You’ll come into contact with GB Ministries through:

Girls' Brigade England & Wales

GB England & Wales (GBEW)

GB community groups (The Girls' Brigade England & Wales) are sustainable local groups for 4-8s, 7-11s, 10-14s, 13-18s primarily, but not exclusively, for girls. GB provides local consultations, adult leader training and ongoing support, fun programme materials and achievement awards that enable a Christian community to engage with young people in a wide variety of settings and in a fun, action-packed way. GB members also may engage in young leader training, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and GB’s International Queen’s Award.

UK Girl – Keep on keeping on

UK Girl

In October 2015, Girls' Brigade Ministries hosted the first ever 'UK Girl Gathering' in order to prompt a conversation about raising hope for girls. Inspirational change-makers from around the UK were invited to meet together, and a group of 40 CEOs, ministers, youth activists and advisers used this opportunity to share their hope for girls. It was a collaborative time of dreaming, hoping and looking forward - resulting in the production of what we've called The Manifesto. Now we’re encouraging others to join the UK Girl conversation too.

GB Ministries is part of a global Christian movement with a great history and a passionate vision for this generation and the future—to see lives and communities transformed and enriched as generations seek, serve and follow Jesus Christ.
