Welcome to the Girls' Brigade Website
Girls’ lives transformed: God’s world enriched.
To empower girls and women throughout the world to discover what it means to be uniquely created by a God who loves them and, in doing so, to experience and contribute to life in all its fullness.
To be a relational, relevant and responsive worldwide movement that empowers generations of (primarily) girls and young women in local communities to develop and reach their God-given potential and so bless and enrich their families, community and God’s world.
Our Story (so far):
In 2013 Girls' Brigade will celebrate 120 years of mission among girls and young women.
Having begun in Ireland at a time when women had little social, academic or service opportunities, the story of GB’s development around the world is an inspiration.
From Ireland and the UK to Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, Americas and the Pacific, Girls' Brigade now works alongside churches, governments, schools and many kindred partners to fulfil our lasting vision of life transformation and blessing.
With strong roots of fun, friendship and discovery, GB continues to positively impact the lives of hundreds of thousands of girls and their families in a broad mix of countries and cultures.
Wherever you encounter Girls' Brigade, you’ll see a network of girls and women:
Safe and cared for by trained volunteer leaders
Learning and using skills
Enjoying new opportunities
Serving others in their community.
Girls' Brigade is Relational
We live and work among people in local communities.
Girls' Brigade is Relevant
We are constantly adapting our methods and activities.
Girls' Brigade is Responsive
We listen to girls, communities and leaders, churches and others in order to develop GB activity that best enriches local situations.
Girls' Brigade brings Restoration
In every GB network throughout the world we seek to bring God’s hope. Lives are transformed, God’s world is enriched!
It is with both fondness and sadness that we note the passing of Ann Webster who, until fairly recently, had served as GB's International Administrator.
Many of you will know that Ann was battling cancer, diagnosed shortly after the International Conference of GB in Malaysia 2010.
Ann was a tremendous blessing to Girls' Brigade, with a passion for our ministry, a love to support leaders throughout the world and a keen eye for detail in all our business!
Family, friends and GB leaders gathered to remember her at services in her home of Airdrie in Scotland on Thursday 17th January.
Please pray for Ann's husband (Bob) and family during this time of sadness, and praise God that Ann now knows God's absolute healing and his fellowship for eternity
If you would like to send any message to Bob and the family, please send them to email@example.com and we will be happy to send this on to them on your behalf.
