We have been back for a few weeks now and it already is shaping up to be an interesting year.
Our boys are a year older, and a lot taller! But they are still boys that want to learn, play, shout, and run around and all the other things that boys like doing.
We are focussing our devotional sessions at the start of Friday evening on what it means to be a "good " Boys Brigade boy and breaking down our object and hopefully making it relevant to the young men of today.
The first Battalion event has taken place, we unfortunately only had one boy that wanted to run a cross country, but he came home in third place, so that was good.
You will have seen elsewhere about us needing help. I appreciate that being a "full time "leader or helper is not for everybody, so how about something less?
After half term we will run our "interest" classes, where we tackle a variety of subjects that have ranged from train topics to bike maintenance to cookery and photography.
Do you have a hobby or interest that you could share for a few weeks with our boys? One possibility we have for this year is building/bricklaying...details to be worked out yet! So nothing is out of the question.
Don't be shy, come and talk to me (or one of the other company section leaders) and tell us what you can do, and how we may be able to fit it into the program. You never know, you might like it at Boys Brigade!!
