We were delighted that our LaunchPad events held over the spring attracted such wide audiences. With over 100 at each of the Glasgow and Edinburgh events and 50 in each of Aberdeen and Inverness; the desire for holiday club training around our nation is clear!

A greater impact

For more than thirty years we have had the privilege of working with young people in the Pilton and Muirhouse area of Edinburgh and are now excited to be working on some new developments there!

Brothers & sisters in Ukraine

When you think of God’s family, how far does that family stretch for you? Is it your closest Christian friends, your youth group, the members of your congregation or the entire church in Scotland? But how often do you think of the family of God on an international scale?

Meet Zonya Bewick

My first contact with SU was at CSSM, which I went to as a child, and years later, as a leader. I also regularly attended SU in my school as a teenager, and enjoyed camps and weekends. For the last 5 years I have been a leader at Bonaly Primary School SU Group which I have loved being part of.

My WOW story for 2013

How good would it be if some of our children could go to North Berwick to SU primary camp in May? That was the challenge we were given last Christmas. We knew that not many of the kids would be able to pay the £50 cost for the weekend, so we started praying.

Praying is so EPIC

Over 200 young people and leaders gathered to pray at Strictly Come Praying last month – individually, together, creatively and imaginatively (handprint paint prayers, tile-smashing confession prayers and M&M prayers proved popular!).

A taste of heaven

I grew up in what is now Zimbabwe. One of the formative things in my spiritual development was when, 10 years before independence, Scripture Union decided not to separate the work it was doing with Africans and Europeans. For me, as a teenager attending the equivalent of the ‘GO Conference’ it was mind-blowing to meet African young people with similar interests, hopes and concerns as I had.

It is good to learn about the Bible

Right about this time of year, groups of primary 6 and 7 children in Airdrie start to get excited. Okay, everyone gets a bit excited at the beginning of February as there is a mid-term break coming up, but teams of six children in four primary schools are looking beyond that.

The Rock

'The Rock' is the new SU Group that started in October at Liberton Primary School. The idea of beginning an SU Group was first mentioned in a chat between two Christian parents in the playground.

A miracle from God

This year God blessed our Open Bible camps in Crimea in a wonderful way. The summer was filled with unexpected blessings.

Our future in Christ

Our Christmas Houseparty brought together 70 senior pupils and school leavers for two nights between Christmas and New Year. They were led through a teaching programme on our future in Christ looking at his return, his judgement and at heaven.
