2018 marks GB’s 125th year of mission among girls!
The story of Girls’ Brigade’s development between 1893 and 2016 is truly inspirational.
It focuses around pioneering women in countries all across the world, joined by a shared sense of God’s call to empower girls to discover God’s transforming love and power in their lives. And in response, to live as people of mission in His world.
Ever since GB began we've been on the move, joining in with God’s mission in His world.
In 1965 the 3 UK-based founding members of this Christian movement among girls amalgamated adopting the name of our earliest mission work, The Girls’ Brigade.

In England & Wales GB continued to develop its mission as part of the church, specialising in providing local community groups where (primarily) girls may develop their skills, explore Christian faith, make friends for life and encounter the hope offered by engaging with God’s offer for us to experience ‘life to the full’.
This website reveals a snapshot of ways of how these local action-packed, stretching, fun and safe friendship groups for children, girls and young women aged 4 to 30 is raising the volume of hope in this generation.

Alongside these community groups GB England & Wales has also pioneered a UK-based mission network called GB Ministries (GBM). Launched in 2009 GBM focuses on developing initiatives, relationships and research that drive forward and further equip GB in our mission to raise hope in this generation.
We're part of today’s church... seeking, serving and following Jesus Christ.

When you ask any former member of Girls’ Brigade what they remember most about being part of a group, it's likely they'll say their friends or the fun times they had earning badges. Perhaps they even still have them.
