Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page – hopefully it will give you the information that you need, even if that is just the level of my contact details.
Please get in touch if you want to find out more about the work of Scripture Union Scotland in your area… or perhaps to see if there is something I can do to support you.
Here are a few things to give you an idea of what is happening in the next few weeks.
This year has been a really encouraging year. New groups started up, others with senior pupils really taking up the task of running their group.
I’ve also spent time with group leaders who have said it’s been a tricky year and the group has been more difficult to run this year. This is often how it is in children and youth work, but God calls us to be persistent and faithfully opening God’s word from week to week as he gives us opportunity.
I’m really grateful to all the volunteers who week by week are involved in groups of all shapes, sizes and styles. I’m always looking for the opportunity to start more groups in schools; if you interested in finding out about being part of a team running an SU group, please let me know.
Megamix is a monthly event for young people in P5–P7. It runs for two hours on a Saturday afternoon, with fun, games, a Bible theme and a snack at the end. If you would like to know more, please get in touch. There is one date left this autumn term: 30 November at Maxwell Mearns Baptist Church. It runs from 4–6PM and costs £2.
It was great being part Basecamp in Arran back in June. There were great stories of the young people who went into a summer as Trainees at SU Holidays, missions and holiday clubs being well prepared to serve God.
In July it was brilliant to lead such a great team at the Mull mission week. We had toddlers' time, a holiday club for the children, trips and evening events for teens, a family evening and even a ladies' pampering night (I didn’t get to go to that!). I’m hoping that the fruit of all these labours will be something we get to see and to build on in the next few months.
I was involved in the mission too at Maxwell Mearns Castle Church in Newton Mearns. A lot of the children involved there will be invited along to Megamix, our monthly event on Saturdays for P5–P7 children; again, our hope is that holiday clubs are not just a flash in the pan, but something which we can use to build relationships with children and families and help them find a place in the church community.
