The classes are split by age group and are designed to teach the Bible and share what we believe as Christians.
The children’s programme has been based on Go Teach material and the syllabus is designed to:
• teach fundamental Bible truth
• give a basic framework of Bible history
• teach the main events of the life and work of Christ
• introduce the Bible’s other main characters and events.
As well as meeting weekly, there are a couple of special services during the year, including a Carol Service in December and a Children’s Day Service in June.
All children and young people are very welcome to join us. Come and talk to us and we will make you very welcome.
1ST CLOUGH BOYS’ BRIGADE
The motto of the Boys' Brigade takes the organisation back to its roots and the reason for its work, the Bible and teaching God’s word to boys.
The moto ‘Sure and Stedfast’ is taken from Hebrews chapter 6 verse 19 ‘'Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast'
The object of the Boys’ Brigade is "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".
1st Clough Boys Brigade has been running since 1943 and currently has an attendance of 70 boys. Our three sections meet each Monday night in Clough Presbyterian Church halls as follows:
Anchor Boys (Boys aged 5-8) 7pm-8pm
Junior Section (Boys aged 8-11) 7pm-8pm
Company Section / Seniors (Boys aged 11+) 7pm-9pm
We run a varied and exciting range of activities for the boys including sport, craft, badge work and Bible study. The company has been successful in recent sports competitions with the company section boys winning the Down Battalion volley ball and table tennis competitions.
The company section boys take part in the BB Presidents and Queens Badge programmes and this year we have 6 boys completing their Queens Badges.
Our new session commences with our registration night on Monday 14 September at 7pm and we welcome new recruits from age 5 upwards.

During the evening we have a wide variety of activities available for the young people to take part in. These include football, cooking and baking, sewing, hair and nails, a games room with snooker, pool, table tennis to name a few.
Every night we also have a short epilogue where we share something from the Bible.
The Youth Club has a few trips during the year and this could include a night shopping in the run up to Christmas, swimming and of course the annual youth club weekend. This usually takes place in March and is a great way to finish the year.
If you are aged between Primary 7 and 18 come along and see what is going on. We would love to welcome you to our youth club.
