Before the pandemic we met every Tuesday evening from September to May during school terms and sought to teach girls Spiritual and Educational values through the teachings of the Lord Jesus through various badge work. GB has always been a Christian Organisation and we have always brought this to every new member and informed parents that this is the case. There are three age related sections, these are Explorers (P1 – P3) who meet from 6.30 – 7.30pm. Juniors (P4-P7) at 6.30 – 8.00pm and Brigaders (S1 upwards) 6.30-8.00pm.

During the pandemic, we were unable to meet physically so we decided to post on Youtube so that the girls and officers could still feel connected and be part of something. The officers adapted their programme to post various videos each week with crafts, keep fit and games. The most important part was the Spiritual section and the Captain, Mrs Eunice Crockett, gave a story from the Bible each week and particularly spoke through the topic of Stained Glass Windows with spiritual meanings. All of the games and crafts tied in with the message and each week they recorded a song which would have ordinarily been sung had we all been together. So we tried to as best as possible bring a traditional GB evening and have it in everyone’s home. There was an invitation for the girls to post their crafts etc on the company’s WhatsApp group. This has been well received and everyone is enjoying seeing what has been done. We have just completed week 11 of this year’s programme.
