About Girls' Brigade Ministries

GB Ministries (GBM) is home to four key initiatives that specialise in enabling this generation of girls, boys and young women to openly explore and engage with real life and Christian faith in a fun, informative and hopeful way.

Children and young women of all backgrounds, and of any or no faith, are welcome to join in with GB’s activities.

GBM was pioneered in 2009 by the well-established and successful girls and young women’s movement, The Girls' Brigade England & Wales (originally founded in 1893).

It exists to continue emerging, developing and sustaining relevant, responsive and relational initiatives that fulfil GB’s age-old and hope-filled vision to see Lives and communities transformed and enriched as generations seek, serve and follow Jesus Christ.

Our specialist initiatives


Arise produces resources, events, ideas and consultations for churches and groups wanting to effectively engage with boys and girls aged seven to 11.

GB Community Groups

GB community groups (‘The Girls' Brigade England & Wales’) are sustainable local groups for 4-8s, 7-11s, 10-14s, 13-18s primarily, but not exclusively, for girls.

GB provides local consultations, adult leader training and ongoing support, fun programme materials and achievement awards that enable a Christian community to engage with young people in a wide variety of settings and in a fun, action-packed way.

GB members also may engage in young leader training, Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and GB’s International Queen’s Award.


Koko is an online place for teenage girls, and a great resource for youth leaders. Films, blogs, insights and support about living life to the full – enabling girls to ‘keep on keeping on’ in a hope-filled way.

The Esther Collective

The Esther Collective is growing (online and face to face) community of 18 – 30s women who, through intentional friendships, exploration and encounter, are supporting one another to develop integrity, influence and faith in their homes, everyday lives, study and workplaces.
