In 2018, our 125th anniversary year, GB groups were set 3 challenges to Give Hope, Build Hope, and Celebrate Hope. As we transition from 2018 GB Ministries will continue our focus on Building Hope through our Build Hope Project.
We’ll be focussing on three areas:
GBM Director Jules Murdy says ‘We think that GB has a good news story to tell, a tried and tested sustainable model of reaching out to girls and young women, and a passion to help them to discover Jesus and the transformation He can bring into their lives and the lives of the local community through social action and outreach.
‘We also know that we need to raise the profile of GB among churches as a fantastic tool for mission and outreach. And give our community group leaders practical support as well as permission to focus on their relationship with God.’
Last month, Girlguiding published its annual Girls’ Attitudes Survey - providing a snapshot of what girls and young women think about a range of contemporary topics. The survey encompasses the responses of over 2,000 young women, aged 7 to 21, from a variety of backgrounds across the UK. As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, well-being and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.Read more
