Formed in 2008 by the PCC of St Mary's Parish Church, Bloxham with the full support of the other Anglican Churches in the Bloxham United Benefice and Bloxham Baptist Church, Bloxham Boys' Brigade (Bloxham BB) provides a range of challenging and rewarding activities for boys and young men aged 7 to 18. We currently have a membership of around 40 boys/young men lead by a dedicated and very experienced leadership team.
Please note that we do not currently operate a Girls' Association. Bloxham is well served by a Girls' Brigade company, 2 Guide companies and a Scout Group which admits Girls. We work closely with 1st Bloxham Girls' Brigade and 2nd Bloxham Brownies and try to organise at least one joint event/meeting with each group, each session. Sisters of BB members are encouraged to join these groups.
We serve young people living in parishes across the Deddington Deanery. Most of our members live in the villages of Bloxham, Deddington, The Barfords, Milcombe and South Newington in North West Oxfordshire, others travel from Adderbury, Balscote, Banbury, Little Bourton and Milton.
Most of our members attend either Bloxham CofE Primary School or The Warriner School, Bloxham. We also have members attending other local schools including Deddington CofE Primary School, Bishop Carpenter CofE Primary School in North Newington, Harriers Banbury Academy, Hornton Primary School, Shenington CofE Primary School and Chipping Norton School.
We welcome applications from young people seeking quality volunteering opportunities and adults with a calling to work with young people.
Bloxham BB is currently unattached to a BB Battalion.
Our chaplains are Revd. Dale Gingrich Vicar of Bloxham, Milcombe and South Newington and Revd. Mike Tydeman Pastor, Bloxham Baptist Church.
