Minister Becomes BBs National Chaplain

Wednesday September 7

A Scottish minister has been appointed as the new National Chaplain for the Boys’ Brigade.

The Rev Stewart Cutler, a United Reformed Church minister serving in a Local Ecumenical Partnership involving the URC and Church of Scotland, St Ninian's in Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, said he was ‘delighted’ to take up the role. He has been involved in the Boys’ Brigade since the age of six, gaining the Queen’s Badge and Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award during his time as member.

He has also worked with children, young people, volunteers and students in churches and communities around Scotland during his ministry.

Stewart said: “I am delighted to become the Chaplain of the Boys’ Brigade in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland. I’ve spent the last 30 years working with children, young people and their leaders in churches, so I know just how important the Boys’ Brigade is to the Church – for reaching out into the community, and engaging with young people, bringing them to faith and telling them the good news of Jesus. For me the Boys’ Brigade has hugely impacted my spiritual journey and also my working life. It has always been a place of fun, friendship and faith.”

Jonathan Eales, Chief Executive of the Boys’ Brigade, said: “I am pleased to welcome Stewart as our new Brigade Chaplain. He brings to the role a wealth of experience and a passion for our work with children and young people. As a Christian youth organisation we are determined to build and to strengthen our partnerships both locally and nationally with the Church.”
