Celebrating our 140th Anniversary


Over the last two years we’ve taken the opportunity to explore with the Brigade family what our Vision, Mission and Values are...

We’ve consulted with our young people, leaders, staff and Trustees. We want to be confident about who we are, what we do and what we believe. In bringing this all together and building on our object of ‘advancing Christ’s Kingdom’ we’re re-affirming our Vision, Mission and Values...

Watch Now


Our Vision explains why we do what we do.

Is that children and young people experience "life to the full." (John 10:10).

Our prayer and hope that children and young people experience life to the full through coming to know Jesus for themselves.



Our Mission explains what we do.

The Boys' Brigade has faith in young people and provides them with opportunities to learn, grow and discover in a safe, fun and caring environment which is rooted in the Christian faith.



Our Values describe who we are and what we believe...



We are a Christian youth organisation, and our work is rooted in the Christian Faith. We have a hope in Christ as our anchor that sustains us throughout life (Hebrews 6:19).



We seek to inspire children and young people, challenging them to live their lives in the fullest sense. We also believe in peoples’ abilities to inspire and act as positive role models to others.



The Boys’ Brigade is a family. We believe in building loving, caring and inclusive relationships, as well as creating a safe and fund environment that is supportive and nurturing. We are responsive to the needs and aspirations of others regardless of ability, identity or background.



We are honest and trustworthy. We seek to empower children and young people to participate and to lead, believing in their skills, abilities and ideas.

What Now?

To fully live our vision, mission and values we will all need to incorporate and embed them into everything we do.

We want to encourage our leaders and members to share stories, ideas and successes that show how The Boys' Brigade makes a difference in local communities and transforms lives.

Consider how you can embed and live out the Vision, Mission and Values - get involved and share with others on social media using #LifetotheFull
