The Girls' Brigade
The Girls' Brigade (GB) is a Christian, international charity working alongside girls and young women of every background, ability and culture. Our motto is "Seek, Serve and Follow Christ".
Since our foundation in 1893, GB has become known worldwide as a fun, interesting, challenging and relevant provider of activities, life skills, care and Christian love for hundreds of thousands of young people.
At Alton Methodist Church we hold the regular meetings for the 2nd Alton Girls' Brigade Company.
Each week we enjoy many different activities. We play games, do handicraft, sing, dance, skip and learn more about the bible.
During the year we try to take the girls out on trips with girls from other local companies so that they can see what a large organisation they are a part of.
Also during the May school holidays we take the girls away to camp where we strive to ensure that they all have a great time learning new skills, enjoying the fellowship of being with others and growing spiritually.
We meet during term time -
