Brigades is a fun space for kids and youth to do more! If you’re looking for something fun for boys and girls that offers challenges and opportunities to grow and, at the same time, make good friends, then 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 5 to 18 years old for guys and girls. Our program is run by trained safe leaders. Our nights contain a whole lot of different things teaching new skills in all areas of life, physical, educational, social and spiritual. During the year we also meet up with other Brigades from around Australia for outdoor rec, camping and leadership training as well.

For more information and to get involved contact our Captains Ron Vandergugten [Boy’s Brigades] and Rachelle Laudenbach [Girl’s Brigades] or our Chaplain, Pastor Nath [Associate Pastor for Youth & Young Adults] at
