Brigades is an awesome space for kids and youth to do more, be more and push the boundaries they would never have thought existed! If you’re looking for something fun for boys and girls that offers challenges, opportunities to grow and space to make good friends then look no further. Come along and get involved!

The Brigades meet weekly on Friday nights during school term at Hughes Baptist Church. We run a variety of different groups for all ages from Kindergarten to Yr 12 for boys and girls. Our program is run by trained safe leaders and parents who have a passion for inspiring children and young people. Our nights contain a whole  range of activities, seeking to teach new skills and bring new experience in all areas of life from the physical to the educational, social and spiritual. During the year we also meet up with other Brigades from around Australia for outdoor rec, camping and leadership training. We want to see boys and girls become fantastic, mature and wise young men and women.

We would love to have you join us on a Friday night!
