Young people’s activities
The 10th Harrogate (St Peter’s) Guides unit continues to thrive. We meet on Tuesdays from 7pm till 8.30pm. The girls plan their own Patrol time and in the last year have tried many crafts including glass-painting, quilling and card-making, as well as working towards numerous badges. Occasionally we have themed evenings and take part in the local St George’s Day Parade and various Guide Challenges. For more information contact Sue Mackay on 01423 564568.
Have 12 girls currently between ages 14 – 18 together with 1 adult leader and 1 or 2 occasional helpers. The girls work towards Look Wider Challenges, the Duke of Edinburgh Award, Queen’s Guide Award, Young Leader qualification and Adult Leader qualification – again further developing their skills, independence and confidence.
The Boys’ Brigade : the adventure begins here
Our group of dedicated and dynamic leaders run a Boys’ Brigade company for 5 to 18 year olds. The calendar includes hikes and walks, festivals and camps, sleepovers and bowling. Please contact John Broadberry via the C0ntacts page, for details of times and dates.
We believe that by engaging in exciting activities, making new friends, having fun and finding out about faith, children and young people can discover their full potential. Come and join the adventure on Wednesday evenings.

We usually expect our Junior candidates for confirmation to have started at secondary school, aged 11 and above, and we meet weekly for about 10 sessions before the confirmation service. Please contact Alan Garrow, our Vicar for more information about Junior Confirmation.
A variety of activities for young people are organised by Jane Cox with help from Sherlita, Jackie and others. Club nights are held on Friday evenings bi-monthly, and other activities are organised such as ice-skating, walking and outdoor pursuits. Parental permission essential.
