Girls Brigade

  • Newtongrange Company meets from 6.30 pm each Tuesday evening during school term-time in the Newtongrange church hall. Changes for summer 2021 to be announced. For more information about Girl’s Brigade contact Gillian Clark.
  • Mayfield Company Explorers (girls in P1 to P3) meet each Thursday between  6.30 and 7.30 pm. For more information then contact them by email
  • Juniors and Brigaders (p4+) from 6.30 pm to 8.30pm each Thursday evening during school term-time in the Mayfield & Easthouses church hall.

In their Companies, the girls meet each week to work through a programme of activities suited to their age and ability following a syllabus of spiritual, physical, educational and service subjects.

The main emphasis is on fun and enjoyment as they learn to work and play together. Activities include crafts, baking, games and entertaining. Christmas can be a visit to the panto, or puppet theatre. At the end of our GB year, each company has an Annual Display – the girls entertain their families and friends by demonstrating some of their activities, and each girl receives a token of recognition for her commitment of attendance and badges for awards gained.

Messy Church

Beginning again this autumn at Mayfield & Easthouses Church.

A fresh expression of church, with a time of creative activity, worship and food for families of all shapes and sizes.  Children, bring an adult with you!
