"Girls’ Brigade is a relational, relevant and responsive worldwide movement focused on working amongst girls and women. We are passionate to see Girls’ lives transformed : God’s world enriched. That’s why we empower girls, children and young women in local communities around the world to be themselves, to develop and use their gifts and skills, and to discover what it means to have life to the full in their generation."

The 14th Christchurch Girls’ Brigade Company transferred to Avonhead Baptist on the 20th of August 1989 and has continued to meet there ever since.
Girls’ Brigade is for girls, aged 5 and up. Our programme covers physical, social, spiritual and educational topics.
Our motto is 'Seek, Serve and Follow Christ.'
We aim for girls to have fun, make new friends, and become lifelong followers of Jesus.
We meet Mondays during term times at Avonhead Baptist Church, 102 Avonhead Road.
In 2021 we are trialling some new times during term 1:
Year 1 - 4 girls: 5.15pm - 6.15pm at the church
Year 5 - 13 girls: 6.00pm - 7.30pm at the church
There is a 15 minute overlap between our two groups, so we can be together as a whole company.
