‘GB groups are some of the most effective bridges built between churches and their communities – they’ve so much mission potential,’ says Reverend Juliet Kilpin, Former National Chaplain, GB England & Wales.
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.’
GB has just launched a brand new resource to help company leaders and church leaders to explore together about how GB is part of each local church’s mission toolbox – and how to make the most of their company!
