Parish Groups

Girlguiding @ St Columba

We have very active sections of guiding in our church. Each section offers a wide range of activities to suit the age group.


Rainbows is all about developing self-confidence, building friendships, learning new things and having fun. Girls get their hands dirty with arts and crafts, get in touch with nature and play games – it’s all about learning by doing.

We meet on Tuesday at St. Johns, Upper Selsdon Road, 4.30 – 5.30 in the guide hut


Brownies is about trying new things that teach girls aged seven to 10 about themselves, their community and their world.

Brownies introduces girls to a world of new opportunities, challenges and fun.

Girls go along to holidays, day trips and sleepovers. They get together with their friends at regular meetings where they learn new hobbies, get creative, explore other cultures and have outdoor adventures.

As well as trying activities at meetings, girls choose from interest badges related to things they want to know more about.

We meet on Monday 5.45 – 7.15 at St. Columba’s Church Hall.


What you do in Guides is up to you, from taking part in lots of exciting activities at regular meetings to special events and trips away.

You will choose from different badges and awards which will help you learn new skills and try new challenges. You can do some of this on your own and others you’ll do in groups in regular unit meetings.

We meet on Friday 7.15 – 9.00 at St. Columba’s Church Hall.

If you would like to know more about Rainbows, Brownies or Guides please log on to and register your daughter at the sections for your daughters age.

Looking forward to seeing you and your daughters soon at one of our active and enthusiastic meetings.
