In 2020 Girls’ Brigade Europe will be gathering together leaders and volunteers for a weekend of fellowship, fun and rejuvenation! To help plan the event they'd love to hear the views of GB England & Wales' leaders. What type of event would you like to attend? Fill in a very brief survey and you could win a £50 voucher for your GB shop.
GB Europe is one of 5 Fellowships of GB International and comprises of GB England & Wales, GB Scotland, GB Northern Ireland, and GB Ireland, with a total of 45,000 members. GB Europe’s current initiatives include the Additional Needs resource, I AM GIRL fundraising appeal and FIZZ mission trips. Following last year’s Europe Gathering GB125 for young women, GB Europe will be extending the invite to all leaders and volunteers from across the Fellowship to come together at this 2020 event.
Amelia Heaford, GB Europe’s Vice Chair, says 'Gathering as a Fellowship is a great way to get to know your wider GB family. We want the event to be appealing and accessible to all leaders so the ideas and opinions of our volunteers is important to help us shape the weekend.'
If you're a current leader or volunteer within GB Europe the quick online survey can be found at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XZVWDJV. Please complete the survey before February 28 February 2019. If you’d like to be entered into a prize draw for a £50 GB shop voucher, please leave your name and email.
Girls’ Brigade Ministries recently hosted the first ever Build Hope breakfast for local church leaders in the Fisherman’s Chapel in Leigh-on-Sea, Southend.
This year, Girls’ Brigade England & Wales has become an official partner with UK Parliament Week, which means we’re producing our own special UK Parliament Week booklet and badge.
This week (1-7 June 2019) we've been celebrating Volunteers' Week 2019 by giving thanks for our volunteers and all that they do week in and week out for the children and young people in their GB group(s).
