The aim of the national Scouting Association
To promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
They seek to achieve this aim by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law, and guided by adult leadership.
The Scout Law
A Scout is to be trusted
A Scout is loyal
A Scout is friendly and considerate
A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts
A Scout has courage in all difficulties
A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property
A Scout has self-respect and respect for others
The Scout Promise
On my honour, I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people and to keep the Scout Law
We are the sponsoring church for the following groups:
Beavers Scouts (6 to 8) : Mondays from 5.15pm to 6.15pm
Cub Scouts (8 to 10 ½) : Mondays from 6.30pm to 7.45pm
Scouts (10 ½ to 14) : Fridays from 7.00pm to 9.00pm
Explorer Scouts (14 to 18) : Fridays at the Scout Hut on Wreakes Lane from 7.30pm to 9.30pm
There is a lot more to Scouting than the weekly meeting. There are opportunities for a variety of other activities (eg sport and camping) and Scouts can also get involved in the wider world of the Scouting movement, both national and international.
We see these groups as part of our extended community, and we extend regular invitations to them to take part in parade and other special Sunday services.
