The 9th Leeds Boys and Girls Brigades meet at Emmanuel Horsforth. Both Boy’s and Girl’s Brigade are national youth organisations that have a Christian ethos.

Boys from ages 5 to 18 years meet on a Monday evening. Each age group works towards an annual badge by taking part in a varied programme of activities like quizzes, games, cooking, crafts, First Aid training and discussions etc. Each week there is a Bible talk. There is also an annual camp for the older boys where they can participate in a range of outdoor activities.

Girls aged between 5 and 18 years meet on a Tuesday night. Activities help the girls to acquire new life skills and also develop as an individual. Recent activities have included jewellery-making, pottery, glass painting, cooking, First Aid training and learning about environmental issues. The annual camp provides an opportunity for outdoor activities and discussion about the Christian faith.

Both boys and girls meet in different sections, according to their age group. A nominal charge per session is made to cover costs.
