The Boys’ Brigade has appointed Rev Stewart Cutler as the new Brigade Chaplain. Stewart has experience working with children, young people volunteers, students, and ministers in Churches and communities around Scotland. For the past five years, Stewart has been minister of St Ninian’s Church in Stonehouse, Lanarkshire – an ecumenical partnership between the United Reformed Church and Church of Scotland.
Stewart has been involved in The Boys’ Brigade since the age of six, gaining both the Queen’s Badge and Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award during his time as a member. Stewart commented,
I am delighted to become the Chaplain of The Boys’ Brigade UK & RoI. 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, commented:
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.
