Uniformed organisations

Find out some more about the uniformed organisations that meet on the Westbury-on-Trym Baptist church premises and who to contact about these organisations.

The church hosts or sponsors 8 packs, troops and colonies from the Scout and Guide uniformed organisations. We feel really privileged to be involved in the awesome children’s and youth work that Scouting and Guiding undertakes.

We have 4 very popular Girlguiding units at the church catering for girls from 7 to 10 years at our 2 Brownie units (28th and 195th Bristol Brownies), and from the age of 10 to 14 at our Guide unit (28th Bristol Guides). All units meet weekly during term time and have an exciting programme of activities including anything from cooking, craft and music to outdoor challenges, camping and even international adventures. We aim to give girls of all backgrounds and abilities the space and opportunity to thrive and grow.

Cabot District Explorer Unit (STEAMA) - http://www.167thwestburybaptist.org.uk/steama-explorers/

Explorers are a group of young people, aged between 14 and 18. Explorers meet every Wednesday during term time

Like the Scout section, the Explorers plan their own programme which is only limited by imagination (and some Scout rules). However we have previously taken part in local, national, and international activities. We have done various activities from scavenger hunts around our local area and some have even gone as far afield as Africa! While Explorers have adult leaders they do not “lead” the unit evenings, the Explorers themselves do that. The “leaders” are on hand to help and support the Explorers achieve the programme that they want.

If you want the fun, excitement and adventure get in touch we’d love to welcome you.
