We have been asked to bring to your attention the Government's recent proposal to allow OFSTED to inspect out of school education, which is aimed at safeguarding children and young people from extremist indoctrination.
As a professional team of children's and youth work advisers we applaud this, as we, like most other people, would find such practices abhorrent.
Breakthrough 2015 – 16 is the fantastic New Year Holiday from Scripture Union for all in school years 10 and above. If you work with young people or have young people in your church, please would you help us to publicise this great opportunity?
This new book could be an ideal suggestion for youth or children’s leaders who are not too sure of the Bible or the Christian faith. It’s designed as a pre-confirmation course to give children a grounding in the basics of the Christian faith, and offers questions and discussion at a variety of levels for parents and group leaders.
Scripture Union is a volunteer movement and so people like you who give time and energy to be involved in ministry are the heartbeat of what we do.
The first event of our summer programme has just begun. Whilst we are incredibly grateful to all those who have already volunteered or let us know that they can’t help this summer, we still have some pressing needs for volunteers on four specific events.
Please could we ask you to consider whether you and/or people you know might still be able to get involved, even at this late stage?
Residentials are a great to help young people to make significant steps of faith in God. With the summer holidays just around the corner there are many opportunities for young people to go away on these. With this in mind Scripture Union are this year offering a special £99 discount for those booking to attend their first Scripture Union holiday.
