The Boys’ Brigade

The Boys’ Brigade provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 5 to 18 years old. These resources have been developed to help volunteer youth leaders work in a relevant and creative way. We hope through these programmes they will be able to make a positive contribution to a young person’s life and be able to share their faith.

    Hi there,
    I am trying to register my daughter for your Rainbows club at the Southway Branch in Plymouth but the website just comes up with an error message when I submit the details. Is there another way to enrol her please?

    Kind regards, Kim
