About MPN Girls Brigade

The new session of 1st Monkton and Prestwick GIrl' Brigade starts on Monday 28th August 2017 with an information and registration evening, with first proper meeting on Monday 4th September at 6.30pm. All girls between 5 and 18 are welcome.

 

 

The Girls' Brigade in Scotland is part of a worldwide organization for girls and young woman which has been in existence for over 120 years.   The Girls' Brigade operates in over 50 countries throughout the world. The needs of the girls are paramount in all that we aim to do with and for our members. We are committed to offering our girls a safe, secure environment, where they are supervised by adult leaders who have undertaken an enhanced disclosure check by the Church of Scotland.

The main emphasis is on FUN and ENJOYMENT as the girls learn to work and play together in their squads. Each girl is encouraged to undertake a wide variety of age-appropriate activities with a view to enhancing their personal and social development at their own pace.

We meet every Monday at Monkton & Prestwick North Church Hall (across from Bryson's Garage) at 6.30pm and we look forward to welcoming any new girls so that they may too enjoy the Girls' Brigade Experience.

This year the girls are all going to be learning ceilidh dancing working towards organising a ceilidh in January, crafts, fundraising for charity and 'Present, Present, Present '.

 

In addition, our Brigaders will be working on morals and choices, singing and company service. Over and above the badge work the girls enjoy a variety of games and activities.

 

We have 3 annual Company Church parades, a Dedication service in October, Remembrance Sunday in November and a Closing service in May. This year as part of the ‘Present Present Present’ theme, we will also be attending church as a Company in December. 

Families are invited to join the girls at any or all of these services.

 

In Girls' Brigade Scotland we value our Leaders, who are all volunteers and who gladly give up their time to be with us. Volunteering with Girls' Brigade is a fantastic experience and if you would like to come along any night we would love to welcome you to our organization.
