2nd Broxburn Company, The Boys' Brigade
The Boys' Brigade is committed to seeing lives enriched by supporting children and young people to reach their full potential by providing opportunities to meet together and engage in a range of fun and developmental activities and experiences. There’s something for every young person whether it’s camping or canoeing, first aid or five a side, orienteering or cooking. Members develop skills, build confidence, make friends, take responsibility and are encouraged to make a real difference in their communities - sharing the values that make us who we are.
The Object of The Boys' Brigade is:
"The advancement of Christ's kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness."
The Boys' Brigade Motto is:
'Sure & Steadfast'
The motto is taken from the bible, the book of Hebrews, Chapter 6, Verse 19.
