GIRLS’ LIVES TRANSFORMED; GOD’S WORLD ENRICHED. We teach our girls to seek serve and follow Christ by getting the girls to have fun learning about God and to enjoy helping others. The Girls’ Brigade Queensland is focused on what can it do to support the community around it, by partnering with local churches to assist in identified ways. Our Program includes Leadership Camps and Group camps and day out with the whole company on the Darling Downs. Each Company is accountable to the local Church and has a Chaplain appointed to each.

All join together for a fun, 30 minute music session then afterwards enjoy snacks, refreshments and play in a relaxed setting. We have parents, grandparents and carers all coming and enjoying the sessions. Friendships are formed, especially between new parents. The children quickly learn the rhythm of the day, the location of different play elements and all enjoy morning tea. Cost $4 per family.

Offering a wonderful program where families are welcomed with games, eat together, explore a Christian theme through a variety of crafts before finishing the night with a child friendly worship session and supper.
Time: The 2nd Friday of the month, usually twice a term, the evening starts at 5pm finishing 7:30pm.
We have many families coming who came to know us through mainly music. It is lovely to see whole families sharing this time, but all are welcome – singles, families, young and old. This is a way to experience a Christian message that is relational and non-threatening. Our children do what children do best – they are just themselves!
