Information for churches

‘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.’

  • It’s easy to set up a GB company and you’ll be supported both locally and nationally every step of the way from training leaders to recruiting members. If you’d like to find out more call GB’s Mission Co-ordinator Hannah Field on 01246 582322.
