Girls’ Brigade

We are the ’11th Wellington Girls Brigade Company’! Our programme features a variety of fun activities designed to educate, inspire and develop girls from the age of 4 up.

Girls’ Brigade is a Christian interdenominational organisation that has been working with young women for over 100 years. We believe in a balanced approach to life and so our programmes cover a selection of physical, social, educational and spiritual activities that link in with our motto to Seek, Serve and Follow Christ. For more information on the organisation and values of Girls Brigade see


When do we meet?

Our Juniors, aged 4 to 8, meet on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5.30pm at our church Centre, 88 The Parade, Island Bay.

Our Seniors, aged 9 until teens, meet on Mondays from 6:30 to 8.30pm at the same place. Both groups meet during the school terms.

Each group follows the Girls’ Brigade programme for their age group and works through a series of activities based around a theme. Activities include games, crafts, cooking, sports, service to others, learning and outdoor experiences. Seniors also have a yearly camp and sleepover and both groups participate in the annual Brigades’ Service. Meetings are run by trained  leaders with help from volunteer assistants.

Come along and see how you like it! For more information contact Capt. Brenda Watkin on 934 9293 or 021 137 8062. Or you can call the church office on Ph. 383 8699.
