It is great to be working for Scripture Union Scotland in West Lothian and Falkirk, right in the heart of the central belt. An area with two associate trusts working alongside us in the diverse towns and villages of this area.

Below is a snap shot of what is going on. If you want to get a fuller picture, please register for my termly newsletter, which you can do on this page. Also there are so many opportunities to further the Good News, we always need more volunteers! If time is too limited to volunteer, you can support the region financially on this page too. The more people involved in volunteering and giving - the more we can do! 



One of our values at SU Scotland is dependence on God and so we want prayer to be at the centre of what we do. I’d love for you to pray for all that is going on across the area. Here are some things that may help you with that:

Sign up to receive my prayer letter, you can be in touch using the contact details above or fill in the form on this page.

You might want to join in with the monthly prayer meeting that meets in Bathgate. Get in touch for dates and venue.

You might also want to visit our pray for schools page to help you pray for your local schools.



In West Lothian there are 11 Secondary Schools and 67 Primary Schools, whilst in Falkirk there are 8 Secondary Schools and 48 Primary Schools.

Across the area there are excellent SU groups run by fantastic volunteers. Part of my role is to encourage and equip the group leaders as they lead week by week in their local school. We are keen to train more senior pupils to run groups in their own in secondary schools and  equip adult volunteers to run many more groups. Could you get involved in leading an SU group? Get in touch to find out more!


Holidays & Weekends

Each year we have two weekend camps for our area. They both happen at Lendrick Muir, the first takes place in January and the other in May. They always have a great mixture of young people coming along from across the area and are fantastic fun. Please see our SU Holidays website for full details, or get in touch if you’d like brochures for young people you know or if you might be interested in getting involved as a volunteer.



I am really keen to help churches connect with their local schools. That might be a wee bit of help setting up an SU Group, ideas on how to deliver Religious Observance or connecting at Christmas and Easter using great resources. Please do get in touch, or have a wee look at Serve Your Local School website.


Local Events

Every year the Encounter event happens at the Inchyra hotel in Grangemouth. It is a national youth prayer event right on our doorsteps! It takes place in March each year.


None of this is possible without the volunteering, prayers and financial support of God's people. If you are already involved then thank you so much. If you’d like to get stuck in then please be in touch or use the giving form on this page.

Thanks for reading about the work in West Lothian and Falkirk!
