The Company at Belfairs has been running for over 40 years and consists of the four sections above, that provide a balanced programme that runs through all sections which is designed to help young people develop and grow into young adults, with a variety of life skils.

 

The Boys' Brigade motto is:- Sure and Steadfast

 

 

Our Boys Brigade Company at Belfair’s has now been running for over 40 years and has four different sections for different age groups. Our main goal at the Brigade is the development of our youth helping them to achieve a true Christian manliness. We meet on Mondays during term times and put on a range of educational and fun activities for our boys. These can range from going over to Belfair’s woods to arts and crafts in the church. We also run weekend meetings with other local companies from games nights to trips out to mega zone. We also have an annual summer camp where both the girls and Boys Brigade have the chance to come away for a week for fun and activities.  Click the link to see what we did in 2013 - Church holiday
