I was a member of the Boys Brigade (UK) for 15 years and have always been proud of my service and thankful for all that it taught me.
On hearing the news today that BB NSW has not signed up to the Government Redress scheme I was ashamed of the BB. Your decision appears to go against the core beliefs of the BB.
Why haven't you signed up to the Redress scheme?
Just wondering what your response to this is
I have heard terrible news in Nigeria 9 Boys Brigaders were martyred at the weekend during a peaceful march through the city of Gombe Metropolis.

The names of the victims are:
1 – SUNDAY SAMUEL GURNET =19 YEARS
2 – RUTH SAMSON SAMANJA = 13 YEARS
3 – KEZIAH AMOS KWATAM = 13 YEASR
4 – POLINA YUSUF SAMANJA = 11 YEARS
5 – JOSEPH DANIEL = 21 YEARS
6 – JOSEPH SAMSON = 19
7 – JESSE MARKUS BAKA = 15 YEARS
8 – IRIMIYA AMOS IBRAHIM = 14 YEARS
9 – JOSEPH DANJUMA PAUL GAVAN = 15 YEARS

RIP and my condolences to the BB community as they mourn these fine young boys who are now rejoicing in the arms of their Father in Heaven. Sure and Steadfast.
Hi,
Wondering about information for Boys Brigade Clubs on the South Coast, NSW?

We were very sorry to hear of the death of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, earlier today.

Prince Philip was the longest-serving royal consort in British history and the oldest serving partner of a reigning monarch.​

One of his biggest roles was the establishment of the Duke of Edinburgh award, which he launched in 1956.​

The program now involves schools and youth organisations in more than 60 countries, including Australia.​

Our thoughts and prayers are with our Patron, HM The Queen, and all of the Royal Family at this sad time.

It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle.

The Royal Family join with people around the world in mourning his loss.

Further announcements will be made in due course. Visit www.royal.uk to read the announcement in full.

Even during these trials we are still thankful.

[03/23/20]   Following new restrictions on gatherings put in place by the Australian government, which restricts non-essential services including places of worship and religious gatherings, churches will not be able to hold physical gatherings.

𝗔𝗹𝗹 𝗕𝗼𝘆𝘀' 𝗕𝗿𝗶𝗴𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗽𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗲𝘀 (𝘄𝗵𝗶𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗶𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝗰𝗵𝘂𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗲𝘀) 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗻 𝗻𝗼𝗻-𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗲𝘀, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗯𝗲 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗰𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗽𝗵𝘆𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗺𝗲𝗲𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀. 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗻𝘂𝗲 𝘂𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗹 𝘀𝗼𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗴𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗱 𝗯𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗚𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗻𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁.

These restrictions are expected to be in place for several months. This will impact the upcoming LDC 2020 and Awards Presentation Ceremonies (as well as other activities). BBNSW will be reviewing these activities and, in line with further developments and subsequent advice from authorities in the coming months, will explore options for these activities.

In the Meantime?
During this period when we are not able to meet with our members physically, we encourage Companies do implement strategies to maintain communications with members and their families. This could include:
Video conferencing (e.g. Skype, Zoom)
Group messages (Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, Instagram)
Regular social media posts and updates (Facebook, Instagram)
Emailing or posting activity packs
Recordings of short talks
Leaders are encouraged to keep parents and members up to date

Novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

COVID-19
Formerly Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)

As many of our members, leaders and parents may be aware, there has been an increase in the number of confirmed cases for COVID-19 in NSW. As the situation continues to develop, Boys’ Brigade NSW is monitoring the situation closely.

The health and safety of all members and leaders should always be the priority of all Boys’ Brigade Companies. This means that Boys’ Brigade Companies are encouraged to adopt strategies and policies to protect members and leaders from possible infection. Boys’ Brigade NSW encourages all Companies to consult with their church to ensure that any specific guidelines outlined by the church are followed, in addition to the minimum guidelines suggested by Boys’ Brigade NSW below.

In line with guidelines from NSW Health, we suggest that Companies adopt the following guidelines as a minimum. As the situation is changing, these are current recommendations as at today – refer to NSW Health for more information:

Anyone who has travelled overseas in the last 14 days, or has been in close contact with someone who has returned from those countries, must self-isolate and not attend any Boys’ Brigade activities until the end of this period.

Anyone who has been identified as a close contact of any positive cases of COVID-19 must self-isolate for 14 days and not attend any Boys’ Brigade activities until the end of this period.

Anyone who exhibits cold- or flu-like symptoms (examples include coughing, sore throat and fever) must not attend any Boys’ Brigade activities. Should there be any concern of a possible infection with COVID-19, please ensure that you seek medical attention (see NSW Health website for more information).

Members and leaders are encouraged to observe good hygiene practices, including:
Regular hand washing with soap and water, and hand sanitation using antiseptic hand sanitizer, particularly before the consumption of food and drinks and after using the toilet

If you need to sneeze or cough, cover the cough/sneeze using a tissue (and dispose of it immediately) or the arm (using a flexed elbow), and use wash hands or use hand sanitizer immediately afterwards

Minimise physical contact with others (e.g. refrain from handshakes or other forms of embrace)

Avoiding close contact with anyone who has cold- or flu-like symptoms

We encourage all Companies, members and leaders to be vigilant to adopt stricter guidelines should the situation develop further in your local communities.

We encourage leaders to stay up to date with the latest developments of COVID-19 in NSW using reliable media outlets, and the latest official advice from the following websites:
