About us

From small beginnings to world wide presence

The Boys Brigade was founded in 1883 by Sir William Alexander Smith. From one company in Glasgow the Boys Brigade with Girls Association has grown into a world wide organisation which works with millions of young people across the globe. The organisation had its 130th Anniversary in 2013 and continues to grow.

About the 2nd Haringey

The 2nd Haringey was formed in 2013 by Capt A.E.Ryder. Using another church within the Parish of St Mary’s it’s aim is to widen the appeal and accessibility of the organisation to young people on the other side of the parish from the main church. With a small group of volunteers the new company is growing in size and is starting to operate a full range of activities for Anchor, Junior and Company sections.
