Brigade news…

We’re back! We started at the beginning of term with face to face meetings. Our members and staff were really pleased to be able to meet, talk and do activities together after such a long time apart. When possible, we are holding our meetings outside, or in well ventilated rooms. So far the Boys Brigade has 2 new members, but we need more as lost a couple during the pandemic, as some boys didn’t like zoom meetings. In our first week, the boys made a giant bamboo catapult which worked pretty well, and last week they made parachutes out of junk to see if they could transport eggs (luckily not real ones!). Great fun, and thanks to Dan for organizing.

We have a Rededication Service for the Brigades and Leaders of young people on Sunday 7th November, so please come along.
