My job, which I've been doing since November 2002, is to make an input into School Religious Observance assemblies, support SU Groups that meet in schools and be involved in SU Holiday events.
Please get in touch if you want to chat about me visiting your school, about how to get an SU Group started or need information about getting young people on an SU Scotland weekend away or longer holiday. It would be great to hear from you.

There are SU groups currently running in schools throughout the North Highlands, Western Isles & Orkney and we are really grateful to all the volunteers who help run them week by week. Some groups run at lunchtimes and others after school. The sort of activities on offer varies a lot from group to group but will include exploring the Bible alongside craft, games & prayer. There are still gaps where it would be great to see new SU Groups, where schools are keen, but there is currently no-one to lead a group.
I would be delighted to hear from you:
- if you want to know if there is currently a group in your local school
- if you are interested in starting a group in your local school
- if you are interested in finding out more about being part of an existing team
Weekends and holidays
Throughout the year, I am involved in leading residential weekends and holidays for children and young people. Residentials are a brilliant opportunity to develop relationships, provide Bible teaching and have fun! Find out more on the SU Holidays website, or get in touch to request holiday brochures and a DVD to promote the holidays at your church. If you would be interested in volunteering as a group leader, general helper or part of the catering team at a residential event then I would love to hear from you!

Discipling young people is a crucial part of SU Scotland's ministry and our COmMISSION programme aims to do this with various events during the year. Being part of the COmMISSION programme will increase their knowledge of the Bible, help them grow in confidence in their faith, show them some really practical ways of playing a positive role on a team and introduce them to a peer group of Christian young people who will encourage them in their walk with Jesus. Please consider if you have any secondary 5 - student age young people in your church who would benefit from this training.
