The Boys' Brigade

The Boys' Brigade (BB) is a Christian youth organisation for Boys and young men first started in Glasgow in 1883. The object of the BB is "The advancement of Christ’s Kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Discipline, Reverence, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian Manliness”.

The Boys' Brigade has it's own emblem, the Anchor with the motto "Sure and Steadfast" embossed on it.

We aim to help Boys throughout their time with us understand more about Jesus and Spirituality, develop their skills such as body, mind, creativity, community and leadership, all set in a fun, yet well behaved environment.

What we do

Our Company, the 4th Ayr, comprises of the following sections.

Junior Section Anchor Boys - Primary 1-3 (must be over 5)

Junior SectionJunior Section - Primary 4-7

Company Section Company Section - Secondary School

We offer a varied programme throughout the year where the Boys work towards their badges awarded to them at our annual display at the end of the session.

The achievement Scheme is split into five sections, Body, Mind, Spiritual, community and Creativity. Our programme is organised so that there is plenty of opportunity to complete each section throughout the year and so there is never any problem caused to a Boy missing a meeting night or two.

The Junior Section work towards their own programme and is designed to help them gain new interests and ideas. There is also the opportunity to take part in competitions against other Companies in subjects such as football, bible knowledge, mime, safety, physical, figure marching and others. There is also the camps to look forward to, both camping indoors, and outdoors in tents.
