1st Ballycraigy Boys Brigade was founded in 1941. Known as the 98th Company of the Boys Brigade Belfast Battalion, until 1945 when it became 1st Ballycraigy Boys Brigade. We will be celebrating our 75th display on April 15th 2016.

The Object of the Boys’ Brigade is:
“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.”

Our Motto and Emblem is:
“Sure & Steadfast” – This is taken from Hebrews ch6v19.
