2nd Consett

The Adventure Begins Here

Welcome to the home of the 2nd Consett Company of the Boys' Brigade

The Boys' Brigade was formed on October 4, 1883 by William Alexander Smith at at Free Church Mission Hall, North Woodside Road, Glasgow. In the years that followed the establishment of the 1st Glasgow Company many other companies were set up in Scotland and the rest of the United Kingdom and then throughout the world.

On the 24th November 1926 Matt Atkinson formed the 1st Consett Company of the Boys' Brigade. On the formation of the North West Durham Battalion the 1st Consett became the 2nd North West Durham (Consett) Company and we have enjoyed over 80 years of unbroken service and have seen many hundreds of boys pass through the ranks of the company.


The Boys' Brigade Motto

We have this hope as an anchor for our lives. It is Sure and Steadfast, and goes through the curtain of the heavenly temple into the inner sanctuary.
