Welcome to this first blog post specifically aimed at those working or volunteering in an SU Group. What you do is so vital to the work of Scripture Union Scotland (and the kingdom of God!) and as a schools’ worker I want to do everything I can to support and encourage you in your role.
We love SU Holidays! We volunteer as group leaders, which means taking responsibility for a small group of young people for the week. It is amazing to spend time with them talking about God, having fun doing new activities, and being part of a unique Christian community for a week.
The big day came to carry the baton through the place I have the joy of living in, and amongst the people who are in my community. I really enjoyed the build up with the other baton bearers... all a bit nervous but feeling proud. It's all about the 'spirit of friendship' and that was the case for me.
