This thesis investigates the emergence and impact of the Girls’ Brigade in the Church of Pentecost-UK. The Girls’ Brigade is a Christian mission primarily among girls and women. It is an international, interdenominational, uniformed organisation for girls and women who are held together by their history, mission and vision as a Christian organisation. The Church of Pentecost-UK is part of the body of Christ linked to the Church of Pentecost, which is a worldwide, non-profit-making Pentecostal denomination with its headquarters in Accra, Ghana. Out of the 105 nations that the church is located, United Kingdom is the only nation that has Girls’ Brigade groups. The setting up of these groups became possible as a result of the start-up grant which was received by the Girls’ Brigade England and Wales from Youth United under the Uniformed Youth Social Action Fund project between 2014 and 2016. With the Girls’ Brigade new to this Pentecostal setting, this study seeks to find out how its emergence has made an impact on the children, young people, the church and the community. The findings of the research are beneficial to the Girls’ Brigade England and Wales, the Church of Pentecost Worldwide, Youth United, researchers and anyone interested in this area of study. This pioneering role played by the church in the United Kingdom is crucial. It could lead to the setting up of more of the Girls’ Brigade groups in the other nations where the church is located. In view of this, the thesis ends with some recommendations.
