We are an extremely active Guide company which enjoys a close relationship with the church. Our activities encourage growth in all areas of our girls' lives including leadership skills, physical activities and spiritual awareness, and make a significant impact in producing balanced, capable young women. All of this is wrapped up in having a very good time!

The 1st Slough Boys’ Brigade was founded in 1925 and is based at St Andrews Methodist Church, Merton Road, Slough. We provide a comprehensive programme of exciting, educational and character-forming activities for boys with a well disciplined and Christian ethos. However, we also aim to create a warm and friendly environment where boys can have lots of fun and games and can gain a real sense of achievement through development of habits of obedience, reverence, discipline and self-respect.
Whilst catering mainly for boys and young men from families at St Andrews and Slough Baptist Church, we also provide Christian outreach to boys from non-church-based families in the Slough postcode area.
The Company has three sections.
- The Anchor Boys for boys at school aged 5 – 8 years
- The Junior Section for boys aged 8 – 11 years
- The Company/Senior Section for boys aged 11 – 18 years
