Girlguiding is the leading charity for girls and young women in the UK. Thanks to the dedication and support of 100,000 amazing volunteers, we are active in every part of the UK, giving girls and young women a space where they can be themselves, have fun, build brilliant friendships, gain valuable life skills and make a positive difference to their lives and their communities.
We build girls’ confidence and raise their aspirations. We give them the chance to discover their full potential and encourage them to be a powerful force for good.

- Do you ever have questions about becoming a Christian?
- Who is Jesus?
- Is Jesus relevant to my life?
During the course you will be introduced to the bible via daily bible readings and devotions. For more information please use the 'Contact Us' link to request more information.
Junior Mission for All
JMA (Juniour Mission for All) members collect money each week from family members and the church congregation, each member receives a quarterly magazine called Rainbow, it’s called rainbow to remind us of God’s promise to Noah and all living creatures that he would never flood the whole world again (read about it in Genesis Chapter 6.)
Where does the money go?
All sorts of places! Most of the money goes to our ‘partner churches’ overseas for mission, but 20p out of every £ stays at ‘home’ and is spent on mission here in the UK.
Lectio Divina is a very ancient practice of spiritual reading. It is a profound way of experiencing God’s revelation through the Scriptures and it is about learning to listen deeply to the text. The practice of Lectio Divina as a way of praying the Scriptures has come to us through the Benedictine tradition.
St Benedict writes in his rule:
“The Gospel should be our guide in following the way of Christ to prepare ourselves for his presence in the kingdom to which he has called us..."
It has been a very real part of Christian pilgrimage for many centuries and being rediscovered in the present day by many individuals and groups.
