A Typical Night

Each uniformed parade night provides new opportunities and experiences for the boys who attend, but they all follow a familiar pattern.

7:30pm - Bible Study

Our night begins with a short Bible study prepared by one of the leaders using materials produced by BBNI.

8:00pm - Fall In

The boys gather in the main hall and march into position to form their squads, ready for inspection.

Boys are marked on their attendance, uniform and general preparedness for the night’s activities, and are rewarded for their efforts at the annual display with various awards.

8:15pm - Drill

We practise our drill routines, which helps develop discipline and team work. It also comes in handy during formal events such as parades and our annual display.

8:30pm - P.E.

We keep fit through indoor activities such as circuit training and team games.

We also venture outside, to run a mile long circuit through the surrounding estates in the village.

9:00pm - Free Time

The is an unstructured portion of the night, during which boys can choose which activities to get involved in.

Boys can play team sports such as football, volleyball and dodgeball in the main hall. Or unwind with a game of pool, table tennis or darts upstairs.

Badgework sessions are available for boys who want to dedicate time towards their badges.

We also provide a tuck shop which can be used during this time.

9:55pm - Fall Out

The boys form squads again in the main hall for closing announcements.

After which we sing the BB Vesper and close the night in prayer.

The night concludes as the squads Fall Out.

OUR OBJECT: 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.
