Boys’ Brigade

Boys’ Brigade is today’s youth movement! And we are the “30th Wellington Boys Brigade Company”.

BB (formerly Boys Brigade) is for boys aged 8 to 16. At BB 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.

BB is an integral part of the life of Island Bay Presbyterian, with the leaders all being members of the congregation and many of the boys too. Minister Nathan is the chaplain to the Brigades and a Brigades service is held each year. BB also provides a uniquely Christian youth setting with Christian Education badges offered bi-annually.

When do we meet?  All ages meet at 6.30pm til 8.30pm on Thursday evenings during term time in the church hall.

ICONZ is for boys aged 5 to 8 (school years 1-3), and we meet at St Hilda’s Church, 311 The Parade, Thursdays 3.30 – 5pm. Contact leader Brenda on 021 1378 062.

Activities: All boys get to try a range of outdoor activities, games and participate in learning sessions. Each year we organise outdoor trips, eg tramping, cycling, kayaking and even water skiing! Older boys organise their own camps and participate in the National Leadership Camp and Young New Zealanders Challenge (formerly Duke of Edinburgh).
