Girl's and Boy's Brigade Round-up
In our Circuit we have 4 Girls Brigade companies and 1 Boys Brigade company. A combined total of over 60 young people meet every week during term time in various locations around the Kettering and Corby Circuit. We have 2nd Kettering which meet on Monday's at Grange Resource Centre, 1st Burton Latimer which also meets on a Monday at Burton Latimer Methodist Church, 1st Rothwell meets at Rothwell Methodist Church on Tuesday Evenings. Central Girl's Brigade meets on Mondays and Central Boy's Brigade meets on Wednesdays.
Every year we take a group of boys and girls away to camp. This year we are going to Govilon Activity Centre in Wales. During our camp we teach new skills to our young people and help them grow in confidence and form strong friendships. We also have a time of daily devotion and reflection. As well as our company evenings we take the young people on various trips and outings, some of the places we have visited this year have been Cadbury's world and theatre trips to see Cinderella, Aladdin and Joseph and His Technicolour Dream Coat. The Boy's Brigade have also been very successful in Battalion Competitions for Bowling, Five a side football and Drama.
We are always looking for new members and Burton Latimer company are in a need of some new leaders to help run the company and allow them to continue the work they do. If you are interested then please contact Helen Lockwood for more information. The Brigades are an excellent mission tool for our Circuit and through the work we do we are able to share the message of Jesus with families that don't usually attend Church. Please contact any of the leaders for more information.

Girl's Brigade Fund Raising Report
On Monday the 8th of April a quiz night was held at Central Methodist church in order to raise funds for the 3rd Kettering girls brigade. We had a total of 60 people attend forming 10 groups who battled against each other in a series of rounds such as movies, sport, general knowledge and a round all about girls. Congratulations to 'Evie's angels' the winning team of the children's quiz and to 'Don's gang and Uncle Neil' who went home with the title of Adult quiz champions. A huge thank you to everyone who came and in total we raised £150 for the 3rd Kettering Girls Brigade. We look forward to organising another quiz night to give you all a chance to knock 'Don's angels and Uncle Neil' off their podium and take home the title.
Thanks again for all your continued support,

On the 23rd February 13 young people and 2 leaders travelled from Central to Bicester for the Acts 29 Northamptonshire District Youth conference. The theme of the day was 'Be courageous.' 100 young people from all over the District took part in Worship and workshops based around this theme. Opening worship was led by Jasmine Yeboah who is the Youth President of the Methodist Conference, Jasmine gave an inspirational talk about being Courageous and recognising that God calls us no matter how old we are. Other special guests that shared the day with us were, Revd Michaela Youngson, the President of the Conference, Revd Helen Cameron, the Chair of the District and Thelma Commey who is next year's Youth President. The day was made up of games, crafts, Drama and workshops. The workshops were aimed at equipping our young people to be courageous to share their Faith, read their Bible, lead worship and to put their Faith into action. The day finished with a drumming workshop and Worship led by Revd Peter Powers. Everyone that attended had a brilliant time. The pictures are of our young people with Jasmine and Thelma

Brownies Cheer Cornerstone
The Brownies at Cornerstone have been so impressed with our new kitchen that they thought the back yard needed some loving care and attention. They have been planting flowers to make sure that everything is bright and cheerful when we look out of the window!
Trooping The Colour
On Saturday June 9th a group of 7 members of 3rd Kettering Boys Brigade attended the Trooping of the Colours in London. They were escorted to the youth enclosure shared with many other youth organisations from all over the country. We managed to get to the front of the enclosure and can even been seen on BBC 1! The arrival of the Royal family provided some great pictures. After the ceremony our group got the opportunity to follow the Queen and a police escort down the Mall waving to the public who were cheering and taking pictures of us. We then got front row view to the balcony and watched the Red Arrows fly past. We all had a fantastic day which we will never forget.
