Hello! My name is Cheri Young and I am the Regional Worker for the North East and Shetland! Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with our North East office about the work of Scripture Union and the ministry that you’d like to see happening in your church, community and region. So what’s on in the North East? …
There are just under 40 SU Groups in schools across the North East, and new opportunities open up every month! These are great opportunities to help the children and young people of this area explore the Bible at a lunchtime or after school club. There’s always another school looking for a group or a group looking for another volunteer, so get in touch and find out where there are groups running and ways you can get involved with your local school!
There are also various training opportunities for North East volunteers and pupil leaders. We regularly partner with Christian Values in Education (details here), but also run our own training days.
Encounter is an annual youth prayer event aimed at P7-S6. Young people are invited to attend with their youth leaders for a day of worship, teaching and workshops focused on encountering God in Prayer. For more information – or to make a booking – click here.
