About Us

The 130th Glasgow Company, The Boys' Brigade is a youth organisation based in Broomhill in the west end of Glasgow, Scotland. Our three age sections all meet on Friday nights during school term time and membership is open to boys between the ages of 5 and 18. Each section runs a packed but varied programme of activities and events that is not only energetic but challenging and enjoyable.

Anchor Section - February 2020

We have now met a couple of times since the boys went back to school after the Christmas holidays. Last year they must have all been very good as Santa brought them lots of exciting presents.

Our first night back was on the topic of presents and Epiphany. We talked about how the wise men followed the star and gave baby Jesus presents. This led us to share with the boys that God’s gift to the world was his son and that Jesus wants to be our friend and help us throughout our lives. We then decorated gingerbread stars to remind us of that special journey long ago which was guided by a star.

Our second evening was still on the topic of journeys and new beginnings. We acted out the story of Jonah and the whale and talked about how Jonah’s life got back on track when he resolved to follow God’s will for his life. The boys went home with pictures that they had coloured in and a 2020 calendar. The calendars had a photograph of the Anchor Boys on it to remind them throughout the year of their Fridays at Anchor Boys.

We shall also be celebrating Burns' Night and look forward to being entertained by the boys.
