'By supporting Girls' Brigade, prayerfully and financially, you’ll provide the support needed to ensure that our mission is fulfilled to raise the volume of hope among this generation of girls!' says Ruth Gilson, Director.
From September 2015 Girls' Brigade England & Wales is launching a whole new approach to our ASSOCIATE and RETIRED MEMBERS SCHEME (ARMS) and we’d love you to be a part of it!
By becoming members of the scheme you’ll be the ARMS around GB’s mission today, supporting leaders, praying for girls and helping us to continue moving forward in our important mission.
In order to make sure that as a member of GB’s ARMS group you are up-to-date with GB news, and able to pray for and talk about our activities well, you’ll receive from Girls' Brigade:
Annual membership of the brand new GB ARMS group is via donation and we recommend this to be £50 per person per year. You can subscribe at any point in the year as we’re operating a rolling membership. You can become a member of our new ARMS group by downloading the form below, filling it in online, printing and then signing it before posting it back to us.
Prayer is the backdrop of GB and we'd love you to pray, as an individual or in a group, for the GB family.
Why not download the prayer flyer for May 2017 below or read on for some prayer points?
Below you’ll find 7 prayer points – 1 for each day of the week – so you can pray for each point around 4 times over the course of an average month.

Spotlight: GB groups are being asked to take part in our free resource called Spotlight this term – helping us to measure the positive impact GB is having on the children and young people we work with. The resource is made up of activities that will shine a light on just four of the areas in which GB is making a difference in young peoples’ lives - developing in character, making friends and socialising, growing in faith, and developing new skills and exploring new opportunities.
Mental Health Awareness Week: 8-14 May is Mental Health Awareness Week. Pray for all GB members who struggle with mental health issues and for the people who support them.
GBM Director vacancy: Saturday 13 May is the interview date for GB Ministries’ Director. Please pray for both the candidates and the interview panel. May God give them wisdom as they make this important appointment.
Residential Events: Many GB groups are busy making plans for summer camps and outings. Pray for all this behind-the-scenes work and for the opportunities camps and outings give to share the gospel message in fresh ways.
GB’s Support Centre team: It’s a particularly busy time of year for the GB Support Centre team dealing with enquiries, processing the annual census, registering Residential Events and Duke of Edinburgh’s expeditions and much, much more. Please give thanks for the team and all their hard work.
Unity: Pray for team leaders and leaders of GB teams worldwide – may they be united in God and work well together forging strong relationships with each other and with the children and young people they work with.
