Girl’s Brigade


GB Ministries is part of a global Christian movement with a great history and a passionate vision for this generation and the future – it’s committed to seeing lives and communities transformed and enriched as individuals seek, serve and follow Jesus Christ.

Its work is expressed in various ways, but all with the same aim – that children and young people discover what it means to experience and share ‘life to the full’, an expression Jesus used to explain what happens in our lives as we follow Him.

GB Ministries is committed to supporting and developing the various aspects of its ministry and to launching new initiatives in mission.
