Boys’ Brigade New Zealand is today’s youth movement! And we are the ’30th Wellington Boys Brigade Company’.
At Boys Brigade your boy will enjoy fun-filled weekly activities within a balanced programme that is skills and values based. Our leaders are positive role models, chosen because of their life-coaching abilities and skills working with young people.
Boys Brigade is an integral part of the life of Island Bay Presbyterian Church, with the leaders all being members of the congregation and many of the boys also. Minister Nathan is the chaplain to the Brigades and a Brigades service is held each year. Boys Brigade also provides a uniquely Christian youth setting with Christian Education badges offered bi-annually.
When do we meet?

“Company Section”, for boys 11 – 18, years meets at 7pm at the same place. (The groups are designed to overlap to enable support and role modelling.)

All boys get to try a range of outdoor activities, games and participate in learning sessions.
