The Scripture Union’s vision is to see the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus.
Scripture Union Scotland is part of the worldwide family of Scripture Union movements that began in the nineteenth century and now operate in over 130 countries across the world. We are a Christian charity working in partnership with local churches. More than 2,000 volunteers are involved in helping run our activities, together with around 100 staff and associate workers.
Who you will be helping
We work in schools running SU Groups and supporting Curriculum for Excellence. Our two activity centres accommodate school groups and weekends away during term-time and during the school holidays we run an extensive programme of SU Holidays and SU Missions. We also run discipleship and training programmes, prayer events and online discipleship for young people.
Every year we ask for contributions to our Holidays Sponsorship Fund for three main reasons:
- Many children and young people come from families who are not able to afford an SU Holiday; without sponsorship, some would not enjoy any holiday and, for many, this is their only break.
- Motiv8 Holidays cater specifically for young people from disadvantaged communities and are heavily subsidised, thanks to donations made to this fund.
- We depend on the willing service of a large number of committed volunteers. For some, volunteering involves a significant financial sacrifice, but all make sacrifices of time and energy. Not every team member is able to contribute towards the event cost, and so we need your help to make up the considerable shortfall.
Spread the word
The present financial climate is still putting pressure on many families, and requests for sponsorship from parents, teachers and youth group leaders are regularly made to the office. It is always a cause for gratitude that we can respond positively because of your generosity. Thank you for your praying, giving and volunteering partnership as, together, we enable young people to hear and respond to the gospel at an SU Holiday.
