Welcome to the website of the 130th Glasgow Boys’ Brigade.

Formed in 1904, we are based in Broomhill in the west end of Glasgow, Scotland. We are part of The Boys’ Brigade UK, which works with more than 40,000 young people, supported by 11,000 volunteer leaders, in 1250 companies across the country.

The Boys’ Brigade provides opportunities for young people to learn, grow and discover in a safe, fun and caring environment which is rooted in the Christian faith. There’s something for every young person whether it’s outdoor pursuits, sport, music or crafts. Members develop skills, build confidence, make friends, take responsibility and are encouraged to make a real difference in their communities.

We hope that you enjoy looking around the site and more information regarding the BB and the Company, including details on membership, can be obtained by e-mail.

"Going to The Boys’ Brigade is an inspiration where you learn about teamwork, helping each other and that enjoyment of being in the BB is a fantastic experience."

Sir Alex Ferguson

“I have been so grateful for the way that BB quickly adapted with #BBatHOME and Virtual Sessions... The provision was quicker, better quality and more thoughtfully delivered than either school or my child’s other extracurricular activity (a drama class – much more expensive!). Seeing that our BB community still cared about my child was invaluable.”
