Thanks for looking at this page.
Please get in touch if you want to know more about what is happening in your area, or to find out what COULD happen in your area. There are lots of opportunities for churches to support their local schools, and to make a difference in the lives of young people by running SU groups and getting them involved in SU weekends and holidays. (there are details of these weekends below)
Megamix is a monthly event for young people in P5–P7. It's aimed at children in SU Groups and church groups in the East Renfrewshire area. It runs for two hours on a Saturday afternoon, with fun, games, a Bible theme and a snack at the end. If you would like to know more, please get in touch. Download the leaflet on this page
As I mentioned above being part of discipling young people is a crucial part of SU Scotland's ministry and one of the highlights of my year. Our COmMISSION programme aims to do this with various events during the year.
Please consider if you have any young people in this age bracket in your church that would benefit from this training. It 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.
I continue to work with chaplains, youth workers and parents as we plan events in schools for their Religious Observance. It’s great to work with such creative people and the schools are so appreciative of the quality of events which are run. In recent years, setting up room for reflection of various topics has allowed pupils to explore and ask questions as we present a Biblical worldview. If you would like to know how you could be involved please get in touch.
Finally, let me mention the SU Groups again. These are great opportunities to meet regularly with children and young people and for some this will be there only opportunity they have to meet people with Christian faith, to hear them pray and watch them handle the Bible. Could you be that person? Could you give some time to your local school to run a group? If you are not sure what that might entail or would like to hear more about this please get in touch.
