Emblem, Motto & Object

Hebrews 6:19 (KJV) “which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both Sure and Stedfast.” From this verse came our emblem and our motto “Sure and Stedfast”.

The Object of The Boys’ Brigade shall be the advancement of Christ’s Kingdom among Boys and the promotion of habits of Obedience, Reverence, Discipline, Self-Respect and all that tends towards a true Christian Manliness.

In practice, we aim to:

  • Help Boys develop and grow in Christian character
  • Train Boys to become loyal and responsible citizens
  • Promote physical fitness and develop the leadership potential in each Boy

The method by which The Boys’ Brigade aims to achieve its object is to provide a fun, meaningful and challenging programme of physical, enrichment, spiritual and social interests.

The 74th Singapore Company of the Boys’ Brigade

The 74th Company of the Boys’ Brigade Singapore commenced operations in November 2000 in Kent Ridge Secondary School. From the pioneering batch of 8 boys, we have since grown to an average yearly membership of 50 boys, aged between 12 and 17. Throughout the year, the Company conducts a variety of outdoor activities such as archery, camping, hiking, kayaking, rappelling and rockwall. These activities are usually led by volunteer youths and young adults and the Company is always in need of willing and able helpers. The Company also actively participates in brigade level competitions and community service initiatives, such as the annual BB Blaze, Character Quest, Share-a-gift and BB CARES project, where the Boys’ participate in a week-long nationwide donation drive to help the less fortunate among us.

We meet weekly on Saturdays, from 9:00am to 12:00nn at Kent Ridge Secondary School, 147 West Coast Road, Singapore 127368.
