Celebrating our leaders: Sarah’s story

Wednesday 27th April 2022

The Boys’ Brigade has over 10,000 volunteer leaders across the country who support children and young people to learn, grow and discover. Over the course of 2022 we are sharing some of their stories each month as we celebrate our amazing leaders.

Meet Sarah

Sarah is Captain of 1st Peebles, which opened in January 2022. They have begun with the Anchors age group but are hoping to introduce Juniors soon as well.

Why did you become a BB leader?

Our Church youth leaders wanted to reach more children and help them to connect with each other and with the Church community. Some of the other leaders grew up in The Boys’ Brigade and so they knew it would be a really exciting opportunity for us.

What is your highlight or proudest moment in the BB?

I’ve been really excited by the children who have invited their friends to join our group. We had just seven children when we started and now, just a few months later, we have 18 children. I’ve been really proud of our young leaders, they make such amazing group leaders and the children really love them!

What do you do when not at BB?

I am a youth and community worker for the Church, so I run toddler groups and youth clubs. I also enjoy playing board games, and I am digging a pond for my garden because I want to encourage wildlife!

How would you describe the BB in three words?

Friendly, energetic, creative!
