This could be an alternative to Girl Guides in Great Britain?
AWANA Clubs UK wrote: Awana Clubs UK Awana prayer for all children Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed - 2 Timothy 2:15 Welcome to AWANA Clubs UK What is Awana?
Awana is a fun and thoroughly enjoyed club program that can be run by any church catering for children aged 2-14. There are approximately 25,000 Awana clubs world-wide, and Awana UK is the website dedicated to clubs run within the United Kingdom. What can I expect?
Awana Club meetings are brimming with life-enriching experiences for young people! Trained leaders guide children through age-appropriate material. Clubbers learn that God is real, that He loves them, and that He has expressed that love through Jesus Christ. They also learn how to apply the truths of the Bible to their daily lives.

""New guidance aimed at boosting 'inclusivity' asks Girlguiding groups to...""
And we all know that this is not "inclusivity"
It is blatant satanic EXClusivity
Because Satan's servants are working overtime these evil days to exclude 'ALL' reference to Christ, the Word of God and anything even vaguely connected to christianity.
Psalm 10:1 Why standest thou afar off, O LORD? why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble? 2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor: let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the LORD abhorreth. 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 5 His ways are always grievous; thy judgments are far above out of his sight: as for all his enemies, he puffeth at them. 6 He hath said in his heart, I shall not be moved: for I shall never be in adversity. 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. 8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent: his eyes are privily set against the poor. 15 Break thou the arm of the wicked and the evil man: ....."
Hi Anne, always a great point. This world, and this nation in particular, is doing it's best to commit genocide against the living God. The Athiests dedicate their lives to erasing Him from the minds of the next generation, and everyone else comes together as one to eradicate Him as well, while all of their gods are not only off limits, but receive honor and respect. Crazy, tragic times. Pray to Allah, and not a peep. Pray to the God of all that is, was, and will ever be, and the ACLU is threatening court action.
Hi Christopher! It always makes me shake my head at how hard these people work to squelch a God who "doesn't exist". If He's a fairy tale, then leave Him be and He should go the way of fables, right? Of course, their inward man knows better at some level...
So, when a Muslim grabs their carpet and bows towards Mecca to pray to their moon God and prophet, Muhammad, no issue there? Only the God of the Bible is off limits. Pray to anyone and anything you want, just not the one who actually created and died for you.
Muslims are not easily offended by prayer, they pray more than we do. I have often prayed with Muslims, even on public streets, one even asked me to pray for her dislocated shoulder. And, atheists also are not offended, they just don't listen or say amen. Get thee behind me Satan, is the best verse here.
Very strange all this from Boy Scouts and Girl Guides, (I insist on using their old original titles), as many "troops" are affiliated to churches.
Is the Girl Guides administration really telling churches that their affiliated Guide group cannot pray and give thanks before their meals at camp?
Given the way these two groups have gone, contrary I may say to the way laid down by Lord and Lady Baden-Powell, their founders, churches should long ago have withdrawn their groups from Boy Scouts and Girl Guides.
There are plenty of other organisations that these Church groups could be affiliated to, or better still the churches can have their own groups directly under their eldership.
