The 1st Timperley Girls' Brigade
Girls’ Brigade at Timperley Methodist Church was affiliated in 1940, giving positive teaching on the Christian attitude to life, for girls and young women.
In 2018 Girls’ Brigade Worldwide celebrated their 125th anniversary and the logo #WeAreGB125 was created.
#WeAreGB125 had three simple themes for 2018: Giving Hope: Building Hope: Celebrating Hope.
Our members at 1st Timperley Girls’ Brigade:-
Gave Hope - by collecting tins and packages of food for Foodbank; filling shoeboxes for the Operation Christmas Appeal; baking cakes for the staff at a local primary school.
Built Hope – inviting the girls to bring a friend to a fun evening. Leading Church Services at Timperley Methodist, along with our Chaplain Rev. Ros Watson, to talk about our company and GB125.
Celebrated Hope – hosting a District Celebration Day and Service at Timperley for the members within our District.
Throughout 2018 the girls badgework focused on how we could discover, give hope and meet the needs of others. Exploring the good news of the Christian faith and why and how followers of Jesus share hope with others and the difference this makes.
There are six specific values at the heart of Girls’ Brigade:
FUN! SOUND! FRIENDSHIP! DISCOVERING JESUS! LIVING IT! YES!
Jules Murdy, Director of GBEW, quoted: ‘Throughout each year GB adds values to the lives of thousands of girls and young women’.
