You’ll come into contact with GB Ministries through:
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.
Arise produces resources, events, ideas and consultations for churches and groups wanting to effectively engage with boys and girls aged seven to 11.
koko is an online place for teenage girls, and a great resource for youth leaders. Films, blogs, insights and support about living life to the full – enabling girls to ‘keep on keeping on’ in a hope-filled way.
The Esther Collective
The Esther Collective is a growing (online and face to face) community of 18–30s women who, through intentional friendships, exploration and encounter, are supporting one another to develop integrity, influence and faith in their homes, everyday lives, study and workplaces.
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.
