The Church Lads’ and Church Girls’ Brigade

The Church Lads' and Church Girls' Brigade (CLCGB), often referred to as “The Brigade” is The Anglican Churches own uniformed youth organisation: welcoming children and young people of all faiths and none. This organisation has a lot of history for over 100 years.

The Brigade has been fulfilling its object to extend the kingdom of Christ among lads and girls'.

The Brigade, are learning to be better equipped to cope with the demands that society places upon them.

The Brigade creates a caring and safe environment in which friendships between young people and children and adults can be established and helps young people and children to grow in confidence, develop their skills and abilities enabling them to work together and show care and concern for others.

We encourage young people and children to explore their spirituality and respond to the Christian faith, and to develop their moral values and a respect for the environment. 

The Brigade at St. David’s meets on a Thursday evening from 6.30pm to 7.30pm in the Church Halls

All ages from 5 years upwards are welcome.

Defibrillator - We are pleased to announce that a Defibrillator in memory of Alan Sankey is now in operation at the entrance to the Church Hall. This has been organised and funded by Alan’s wife, Ann and St David’s would like to thank Ann for this generous and potentially lifesaving equipment that is now part of our Church.

A small dedication service in memory of Alan was held following the main Brigade Anniversary Service on Sunday 19th May at 10am. See pictures below.

In light of the latest Government advice on social distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, it has been decided that all Church Lads’ & Church Girls’ Brigade Companies are to temporarily close until further notice.

St David’s Company is therefore suspended with immediate effect.  We are sorry to all our members and parents, but we are sure you will support us in following Government advice aimed at protecting the community from the spread of Coronavirus.

We hope the suspension of our meetings will be short lived and we hope to re-open as soon as possible. We will keep in touch with parents and post updates here on the Brigade page of the church website.
