We're excited to join in launching #BBatHOME a new programme to enable The Boys' Brigade to continue to reach out and engage children and young people with a fun and exciting programme of activities with opportunities to learn, grow and discover in their own homes supported by Parents/Carers.

With the outbreak of the Coronavirus in the UK, the BB's face-to-face meetings with over 40,000 children and young people have had to be suspended. In response to this The Boys' Brigade is seeking to engage its members and non-members in a programme which will continue to see children and young people having the opportunity to Get Active, Get Adventurous, Get Creative, Get into the Bible, Get involved in their community and the world around them and Get Learning.

Every week the three sections will have an activity pack to take part in at home with their family.

We'd be grateful if Parents/Carers can share comments and photos/videos of #BBatHOME activities. This can be done on via:

  • via the Programmes area (choosing the Participate at Home option) of the OBM Parental Portal (login here), where the activities can also be found
  • our closed Facebook group (where the activities will also be shared)
  • via our website's contact form (choosing the #BBatHOME category)

Get into the Activities

There will be a number of elements to the #BBatHOME programme including:

  • Summer Adventures resource
  • Weekly/biweekly Activity Packs – Weeks 1 to 18 available now (see below)
  • Brigade-wide Competitions – find out more!

    Each week Chaplains and others from across the Brigade are producing two Devotional Videos ‒ one for Under 11s (Anchors, Juniors) and another for Over 11s (Company Section, Seniors, adults/Leaders)
