Hi, I'm Gavin Thomson and I am the SU worker for West Edinburgh.

As the es-team worker for West Edinburgh I'm responsible for looking after the Scripture Union work in schools in that part of the city.  But it's not just me (just as well!!) who is doing the work - there are loads of volunteers working in our schools; leading SU groups, helping in classrooms and in other roles too, as well as many people praying and financially supporting the work.

The schools that I cover in the west of the city are:

Balerno Community High School
Currie Community High School
Firrhill High School
St. Augustine's High School
Wester Hailes Education Centre

Bonaly Primary
Broomhouse Primary
Canal View Primary
Carrick Knowe Primary
Clovenstone Primary
Colinton Primary
Currie Primary
Dean Park Primary
Juniper Green Primary
Longstone Primary
Murrayburn Primary
Nether Currie Primary
Oxgangs Primary
Pentland Primary
Ratho Primary
Sighthill Primary
St. Mark's R.C. Primary

Although work in schools is a key part of the work it's not all I get up to.  Throughout the year you might also find me leading a weekend camp or a beach mission for example.  All of these activities are designed to help young people to explore the Bible and respond to the significance of Jesus.  However, they require people with a whole range of skills to enable them to run.  If you'd like to get involved in any way I'd love to hear from you - please get in touch!
