7th Leytonstone Girls’ Brigade has been on the site of Leytonstone High Road Methodist Church for just over 90 years. So many girls have had so much fun over the years, so many friendships made.
7th Leytonstone Girls’ Brigade plays an active role in the life of Leytonstone High Road Methodist Church. We meet in the Lister Hall Thursday evenings (during school term time), from 6:15 pm to 8:00 pm.
Weekly activities: games, crafts, drama, discussions, devotions and lots of fun and laughter!
New members are always welcome, just pop in and see us on a Thursday! For further information, please complete the form.
The GB are split into the following sections:
In GB we laugh a lot – there are smiles because we enjoy activities and feel at ease in our relationships.
GB is safe and secure. We take care in training and equipping leaders to operate responsibly in everything they do in GB. Safeguarding children and leaders and taking care to manage risk is important to GB.
Children, young people and leaders make friends through GB. We have time to get to know one another, to care and support each other like friends do. GB friends often become life-long friends.
Through GB, children, young people and their wider families discover the story of Jesus for themselves. They have opportunities and space to learn about Him and to become people who live like Him in this world.
GB enables children and young people to discover gifts, develop their potential, take up opportunities to develop leadership and life skills and to express their values and faith in the way they live.
GB is full of applause, encouragement, certificates, awards, smiles and simple ‘well dones’. GB loves to affirm young people – to acknowledge their gifts, skills, achievements and efforts and to celebrate who they are.
I feel as though I’ve been in the circuit longer than just four months! Suzie and I continue to be grateful for the circuit’s kind welcome and the relationships that we’ve begun to establish.
It is early days, but I am encouraged and feel much has already been achieved or is in the pipeline for the coming few months, and I am particularly grateful to the circuit leadership for all their support and guidance. We’ve already made some hard decisions, but many opportunities lie in wait for us in 2024, and some of these we intend to grasp soon. There are many grounds for hope.
