About Boys’ Brigade
The Boys’ Brigade is a worldwide, Christian, youth organisation for those aged 4 to 18 years. In Northern Ireland, the Boys’ Brigade, sometimes referred to as the BB or BBNI, is one of the largest uniformed youth organisations.
We have 300 BB Companies meeting weekly, usually weeknights, from September – April / May. The Boys’ Brigade companies are run in local churches and missions throughout Northern Ireland by officially trained local volunteers from the church or mission.
The advancement of Christ’s kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.
The Brigade acknowledges Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord according to the Scriptures and seeks to fulfil its aim to the Glory of One God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Brigade witnesses to the standard set by Jesus Christ and gives positive teaching on the Christian attitude to life. The Brigade promotes a just society where all people are equally valued.
All over the world, Boys’ Brigade members wear the same badge. In the centre a Cross, the symbol of Christ and His Church.
