The Adventure Begins Here
The annual enrolment service of 2nd Ballynahinch Boys’ Brigade Company took place on Sunday evening 7th October. The Minister of the Congregational Church Rev Dr. George Speers welcomed the large congregation of family and friends. He paid tribute to the ongoing encouragement from parents and the many volunteer leaders and helpers engaged in the work on a weekly basis. The challenge of maintaining the attention of the younger boys was down to guest speaker Mr. Paul Hamill.
Company captain Mark Bell has called on all boys to join the adventure at 2nd Ballynahinch Boys’ Brigade. Mark said, “Today we are passionate about building bridges into local communities and engaging children & young people (aged 4 to 19+) by means of weekly groups, special events, local District and province-wide competitions, community involvement and training programmes. The Boys' Brigade offers an experience of life beyond what is possible in school or at home. We believe that by participating in exciting activities, making new friends, having fun and finding out about faith, children and young people can discover and develop their potential.”
The 2nd Ballynahinch Company meets at the Congregational Church Halls, Dromore Road every Monday evening between September and Easter from 6.00pm to 9.30pm.

Is YOUR son missing out or do you know a boy aged between 4 and 17 who likes trying new sports, learning new skills, creating things, learning about Great stories from the Bible, play musical instruments, going on trips, competing with people, being part of a team, having fun and making new friends? If you do, then bring him down to BB on Monday evening.
