100 Members and Leaders from 5 Companies attended ‘Renewal - A Company Section & Seniors’ Worship Event’ on Friday 24th February at Portobello & Joppa Parish Church.

The event was opened by Rev Ian Gilmour, Battalion Chaplain and facilitated by Rev Stewart Weaver, and other leaders from 25th Edinburgh Company.

The evening explored the topic of Renewal, using the Story of A Church Burning Down.  From this the question was “How the BB’s Renew and how to let others know about this”.  The evening involved creativity and producing short promotional videos on what makes the Boys’ Brigade something you want to be part of.  There was also a selection of other fun activities including Table Tennis and human hungry hippos to enjoy during the evening.

Donations made on the night will be given to ‘Climate Conscious Total Village (CCTV)’, The Boys’ Brigade World Mission Appeal 2017.  £TBC was donated on the night.

Food was served during the event.
