The #WeAreGB125 regional tour provides the opportunity for GB volunteers to explore the hope that Jesus brings, and to look at how they can get involved in GB’s #WeAreGB125 anniversary project.
The tour focuses upon 3 key challenges which make up this project:
Give Hope - exploring a range of ideas for social action activities which groups can engage with to help benefit their communities
Build Hope - unpacking ways in which new and existing groups can grow
Celebrate Hope - looking at how we can look back, look forward, and celebrate in GB's 125th year!
GB's Mission Co-ordinator Hannah Field says 'The #WeAreGB125 tour therefore seeks to not only raise people's awareness of how they can participate in these challenges, but to help equip them to do so to - as GB's story of raising hope continues to grow!'
A series of #WeAreGB125 regional tour sessions will soon be taking place in the following regions across the country. We’d love to see you there! Call GB on 01246 582322 or email Hannah for more details.

On Wednesday, Girlguiding released its annual Girls’ Attitudes survey. The biggest survey of its kind in the UK, it asked the opinions of just under 2,000 girls and young women aged 7 to 21 (not just members of Girlguiding). As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, wellbeing and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.
