Guides


The Guide unit meets on a Tuesday evening from 7 until 9pm in the Parish Centre.

Wall climbing; candle making; working in small groups; camping; cake baking; thinking about world issues; trampolining; knot tying; first aid; clearing up after yourself; cooking on open fires.  Guiding is all about having fun, building friendships, developing skills, discussing issues and working together in groups. Guides are encouraged to plan many of their own activities.

 Most years we also go camping. We take part in many outdoor activities including sailing, canoeing, dragon boating, assault courses, abseiling, campfires and outdoor cooking.

Guides are part of a worldwide organisation.  We have had members who have been selected to represent Ulster Guiding at international camps.  

Guiding is for all ages – you could come along and help too.  Leaders listen, encourage, take part, have fun and sometimes manage chaos!  Others occasionally come along to help with specific activities, to share skills or experience – so, male or female, whatever age, do get in contact and come along.
