15th Canberra Brigade

The Tuggeranong 15th Canberra Girls' Brigade is sponsored by  the Tuggeranong congregation. The group meets every Tuesday for a variety of  activities aimed at helping girls to develop spiritually, socially,  intellectually and physically, and to grow to be mature and responsible  citizens. Girls from age 5 are welcome to come along and join in the activities  of a warm and friendly group of girls.

Questions people ask about Girls' Brigade

What is Girls' Brigade?

The Girls' Brigade is a world wide Christian organisation of  girls and women which was established in Ireland over 100 years ago. It has  since spread to more than 50 countries and is still growing. Companies meet  each week and girls regularly take part in crafts, games, camps and outings,  but also are challenged through discovering more about God, serving in the  community and learning leadership and living skills. Girls Brigaders form  friendships with other girls, not only from within company, but sometimes even  from other parts of the world! At all times, girls are in the care of trained  and competent leaders in a safe environment. What does GB give girls?

The caring Christian environment encourages the development  of each girl's individual talents, while equipping them with social, physical,  intellectual and spiritual skills needed in life to become vital members of the  community.

How old are girls that participate in GB?

GB provides programs for girls aged from 5 to 18. Girls in  school years K-2 are cadets, years 3-6 are juniors (sometimes divided into two  groups), years 7-8 are seniors and years 9-12 are pioneers.

Why do you wear a uniform?

A uniform makes show that we belong to a world-wide  organisation and are proud to belong to that organisation. It also encourages  us to look neat and presentable.

Why only girls?

Sometimes it's good to be just with other girls. Some girls  feel more comfortable and relate better in a girls-only environment. Boys may  not like some of the activities we do. For boys, there is Boys' Brigade, which  has the same ideals and a similar program to GB. Many churches with a GB  company also have a BB company.

Do you have a motto or an aim?

Yes, we have both. Our motto is "to seek, serve and  follow Christ", while our aim is "to help girls to become followers  of the Lord Jesus Christ, and through self-control, reverence and a sense of  responsibility to find true enrichment of life.

Do you earn awards?

All activities done at GB help girls earn awards that are  presented at the end of each year. Older girls can choose to spend time outside  GB participating in special awards.

About Our Church

Our faith community began in 1975 as a small ecumenical gathering of people who settled in the new Canberra township of Tuggeranong. We have grown with the Tuggeranong Community, and our parish centre is the hub for our work, as a place of worship, of gathering and ministry.

We aim to help people have life to the full. We welcome people into a our Christian community where they can connect with God, with one another and with opportunities to make a difference in our changing world.
