Girls’ Brigade gives hope in Manchester
The members of 6th Manchester Girls’ Brigade group have been busy making 125 hearts to place around their city to commemorate last year’s bombing at Manchester Arena
The group members, aged 4 to 14, made 125 of the hearts marking the fact that this year is also Girls’ Brigade’s (GB) 125th anniversary. 6th Manchester is based at Brownley Green Baptist Church in Wythenshawe.
Leader Donna Curtis-Robbins said, ‘We had 12 girls making the hearts, which we cut out of felt and then stuck smaller card hearts to before decorating them with gems and buttons. In the middle of each one is the Manchester bee with the words hope, strength, and peace.’
The craft idea originally came from one of Donna’s work colleagues who explained that she was making a few hearts for #AHEART4MCR. Donna added, ‘My colleague explained to me that these hearts are placed around Manchester Arena and that area for people to take to spread love and give hope. I loved the idea.
‘I dropped the hearts with the lady from #AHEART4MCR and she put them out in Manchester on the 22 May with all the others that have been made by people around the country. We took some of the girls to Manchester on the day to collect a heart each as well.’
The idea of giving hope links to GB’s anniversary project called #WeAreGB125 in which GB groups are being set three challenges to Give Hope, Build Hope, and Celebrate Hope.
Our Wednesday Fellowship enjoyed their annual outing to Lytham St Annes on July 10th. In the midst of this hot summer it was a great day out by coach. Some of the group can be seen after an excellent Fish and Chip lunch. A great day of fellowship and fun were enjoyed.
2018 sees the 80th anniversary of Brownley Green Baptist and during the year several of our former ministers have returned to conduct services. These include Revs Barrie Clarke, Bob Casley, Adrian Klos, Michael Sheen, Dr Nigel Wright (former moderator to our church). We continue to give thanks for the work The Lord has brought to our area and the many who have come to Christ over the 80 years.
