Primarily working among girls aged four upwards, GB provides a way for your church to connect with girls and young women on a regular basis and helps you to establish relationships with their wider family and friends.
The interactive GB programme helps leaders to develop and sustain this vital youth work; there’s an action-packed programme of national events to get involved with; and our leadership and mentoring programme enables girls and young women to grow.
‘GB is great at working with girls and young women who haven’t got a church background,’ says Ruth Gilson, National Director. ‘The fun and friendship they enjoy at GB provides a non-threatening platform that enables us to explore Christian faith and the gospel together.
‘But we see this very much as a partnership with the church and we want to serve you in reaching out in your community.’
