The Northern Ireland Boys’ Brigade is a dynamic, flexible, and inspiring church ministry for children and young people. BBNI companies operate in over 240 churches across Northern Ireland and Donegal. Each week our volunteer leaders provide a balanced programme of activities for children and young people aged 4 -18. (P1 – Year 14).

The advancement of Christ’s Kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness.


Sure & Steadfast

Chaplains play an important role in the life of a Boys’ Brigade company, supporting the leaders, helping them to share the gospel, and praying for both the leaders and young people. The chaplain will be appointed by the church, but not every chaplain will be the Minister. Some will be a childrens/youth worker or member of the church leadership team and every chaplain will approach the role in a different way.
