We’re excited to launch #BBatHOME a new programme concept to enable us to continue to engage our members with opportunities to learn, grow and discover through a balanced programme of activities in their own homes supported by their parents/carers.

Through this alternative programme we believe we will see…

  • opportunities for all our members to engage in a fun and exciting programme of activities.
  • children and young people getting into the Bible and having the opportunity to come to know Jesus for themselves.
  • leaders continuing to engage with the BB family and build on the well-established relationships with children and young people and their parents/carers.
  • The Boys’ Brigade sharing a positive message of hope by showing how we care for and support our members and their families.
  • opportunities for children and young people to be recognised for their participation and achievements.
  • engagement by non-members, recognising that this will be a difficult time for children and young people who are restricted in their activities.

We would encourage all leaders to read the Leaders Guidance, which provides more detail about what the #BBatHOME programme offers and will provide you with ideas about how you deliver the programme to members through their parents/carers.

Virtual Sessions NEW!– To support the #BBatHOME programme, we have been looking at ways for our leaders and young people to stay safely connected through ‘Virtual Sessions’ during this period. As such we now have some guidance for leaders on how to setup and host interactive virtual sessions with children & young people, in line with what is happening with schools and other youth organisations. Check out the ‘Staying Connected – Virtual Sessions’ guidance.
