WHAT DOES GIRLS' BRIGADE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Girls' Brigade

Not to be confused with the Church Lads' and Church Girls' Brigade. The Girls' Brigade is an international and interdenominational Christian youth organisation. It was founded in 1893 in Dublin, Ireland. The modern organization was formed as the result of the amalgamation of three like-minded and similarly structured organizations in 1964. These organizations were the Girls' Brigade of Ireland, the Girls' Guildry of Scotland, and the Girls' Life Brigade of England. The International Headquarters are currently based in Glasgow. The organization operates in over 60 countries worldwide and is divided into five Fellowships: African, Asian, Caribbean and Americas, European, and Pacific. International Conferences are held every four years, this has been happening since 1998 when the conference was in Australia. It was in Thailand in 2002, Northern Ireland in 2006, and Malaysia in 2010. The Queen Mother and Princess Alice were Girls' Brigade's patrons until their deaths in 2002 and 2004 respectively. There are, at the moment, no living patrons. The anthem of the girls brigade is the hymn Give me oil in my lamp.
