Social Groups

8th Portsmouth Girls Brigade

8th Portsmouth Girls’ Brigade (GB) has been in
existence for more than 75 years.
The volunteer leaders love working with girls
and young women… seeing them make friends,
learn new skills, achieve, have fun, and learn
more about Jesus week by week.
We’re part of Solent District GB and often join
in with other groups for action-packed activities.
Solent District GB is made up of 10 groups
spread between Emsworth to the east, Fareham
to the west, and Waterlooville to the north.
