Girls Brigade

7th Coventry Girls’ Brigade Company

Girls’ Brigade England and Wales is a global organisation for girls aged between 4 and 18 years.  The aim of Girls’ Brigade is ‘to help girls become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ’ and as a Christian organisation we believe in the life that Jesus came to bring – life to the full.

Girls’ Brigade groups are called Companies and 7th Coventry Girls’ Brigade Company meets at Holyhead Road United Reformed Church.

Explorers are aged 4 to 8 years and badgework is based on a programme called ‘n:vestigate’ where girls meet new friends and through craft, games and stories investigate the adventures of Jesus with Fudge, the floppy dog.

Juniors are aged 8 to 11 years and badgework is based on a programme called ‘n:gage’ where girls discover the adventure of knowing Jesus with friends and do more craft, games and activities suited to their age group.

Seniors are aged 11 to 14 years and badgework is based on a programme called ‘n:counta’ where girls meet life head on through discussions, team building games and friendships. Seniors begin to think about the Christian viewpoint to topical and relevant issues.

Brigaders are aged 14 to 18 years and badgework is based on a programme called ‘n:spire’ where young people can chill out with friends, take some new opportunities, and develop leadership skills. Brigaders focus on the Christian viewpoint to topical and relevant issues and begin to think about where they stand on these issues. Brigaders also have the opportunity to join a programme of Young Leader Training learning leadership and team building skills.

All members of 7th Coventry wear a uniform and attend an all age Church Parade service on the first Sunday of every month.

We hold an annual indoor Camp for girls aged 8 years and over.
