The Boys Brigade

High Carntyne Church is the home of the 162nd Boys Brigade Company, and has been for a very long time!  

All sections meet on a Monday night at 7pm, where we take part in a number of different activities – from quizzes to team sports, including football and unihockey.

Our members range from 5 to 15, split into the following sections:

Anchor Boys (aged 5-8)

Junior Section (aged 8-11)

Company Section (aged 11-15)

The Boys’ Brigade has been around for over 125 years and in 2008 we celebrated our 125th Anniversary. Our Founder Sir William Alexander Smith, included in our Object “The Promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness” and that has not been changed.

What has changed is how we go about promoting that object. We recognise that the influences surrounding our young people are not always helpful and that too many lose control at great cost to themselves, their families and the community. The answer is to catch the energy and enthusiasm of youth and to channel it purposefully.

Our leaders are young and energetic, and we’re always happy to welcome new boys in any of the sections. There is no requirement to attend any church. For more information about The Boys’ Brigade, you can visit the organisation’s website HERE
