Living Our Beliefs – Social
PBCC Social Life
The Plymouth Brethren have a very interesting and varied social life. Young people are encouraged to develop relationships based on religion, education, music, exercise, sport, continental and overseas friendships, and engage in lively conversation and discussion. There is a strong emphasis on families in the PBCC, and youth are brought up in this healthy environment. Interaction with peer groups is encouraged and frequent, meaning young people develop healthy relationships with older generations and there is little segregation of age groups in social activities.
Young people are encouraged to keep fit and engage in a healthy lifestyle including walking, running, swimming and outdoor recreational pursuits as well as reading, research and study. Music plays an important part in the lives of young people and there are numerous musical groups among the brethren.
This short documentary provides a snapshot of how PBCC members socialize, shop, provide care and support for others, whilst at the same time enjoying themselves. Brethren often travel to many countries throughout the world, and enjoy meeting new people and relaxing with friends.
