We enjoyed a lovely day on Saturday with almost 500 people joining us at Lendrick Muir to celebrate the ministry of Scripture Union in Scotland.
The Big Celebration is one of the main events in SU Scotland's calendar. It's a perfect opportunity to hear, and share, about the last 12 month's work in schools, at the centres and during SU Holidays and Missions - and also to look forward to the coming year. It is so encouraging to see so many volunteers and supporters together in one place, and to witness the enthusiasm for ministry to children and young people.
We really appreciated John MacKinnon (Minister of Calderwood Baptist Church, East Kilbride) as our morning speaker, and also Emlyn Williams (SU Director, Britain & Ireland) who shared news from our sister SU movements across the globe. Over 60 young people also attended as part of the COmMISSION review weekend, and during the afternoon session we heard from the team who attended the SU International Leadership Conference in the Ukraine this summer.
The Big Celebration is always… well, a big celebration, with plenty of opportunities to try the on-site activities (it's not often the adults have a go!), catch up with friends over coffee, and dance the night away at the ceilidh!
