Live in the Guildford area? Know a church that could benefit from the great work of Girls' or Boys' Brigade?
Bridging the Gap is an event for church leaders and youth leaders who are looking for ways of bridging the gap between church and children/young people and who are interested in what the Girls' and Boys' Brigades are doing.
Arranged by GB and BB leaders from the local area, this event will take place on Saturday 8 September 2018, in Guildford, and details of booking to attend via Eventbrite are on the flyer below.
Bridging the Gap will feature a couple of great key note speakers including GB's Director Jules Murdy, several case studies, and a time for discussion.
Download the flyer below for details and please share it with a church without a GB or BB who may like to find out more. You can also point them to the Bridging the Gap Facebook page.
If you're a GB leader who'd like to come along then please bring someone with you from a church that doesn't have GB and who would like to find out more.
