About Us

The Boys' Brigade (BB)is the first Christian Uniformed Youth organisation in the world, formed in 1883 by Sir William A Smith. It provides a wide range of social and adventurous activities for Boys aged 5-21 and Girls aged 16-21. Activities include outdoor adventure, kayaking, mountaineering, community activities, sports, games, art, craft, Christian Faith, music, citizenship and basic life skills.
The BB in Bath was formed in Bath in 1897 and has operated in many Churches and Christian Organisations (like the YMCA) non-stop since then!

The 2nd Bath Company is part of The Weston Free Church(Moravian), High Street, Weston, Bath and meets three nights a week!
