A Week in the life of SU

youtube-screen-shot

Welcome

Helen Warnock
General Director

I count it a real privilege to serve under the banner of SUNI.

Today we are launching our ‘week in the life of SUNI’, sharing stories from all across the country and all across the movement. Whether you are a summer Mission team member from Aughnacloy or a teacher working in North Belfast, we are all seeking to share the Good News of God - what a privilege!

Over the last year we have seen opportunities grow and have had to continually think wisely about how we best share Jesus in each context...

Shining Lights

Leanne Dunlop
Schools Ministry

I have the utmost respect for Teachers and am continually inspired by their heart to empower children and young people to reach their full potential.

How can we possibly begin to sum up the role of a school teacher today?! They are more than just imparters of knowledge...

UNITE

Phil Howe, Post Primary Schools Worker

Bringing together SU groups from across Northern Ireland.

On Saturday 14th March 2015, over 700 people, representing over 50 schools from all across Northern Ireland, gathered together at the Ulster Hall in Belfast. From Kilkeel to Coleraine, from Carrickfergus to Enniskillen, every County in our nation was there...

Time With God

Rachel Sheppard,
E3 Ballymena Schools

Every Tuesday morning you’ll find the SUNI staff team gathered together for staff prayers at the Albertbridge Road offices. It’s a valuable time for the team, taking an hour to open up God’s Word and pray together. There is an incredible richness in encouragement and challenge coming from so many people, hearing from God and sharing together as well as praising and petitioning God.

So I invite you to “join us” for staff prayers, perhaps you could use this as a devotional within a team you are part of or maybe as an alternative to your own time with God.

Our team isn’t always in the building

Drew Steele, Outreach Ministry Leader Lyndsey Miles, E3 East Belfast Schools Worker

We are so thankful for the team effort that enables us to do all we do.

Scripture Union Northern Ireland is a volunteer movement…but what does that mean? We are privileged to have a number of full and part-time members of staff, but the reality is that most of the work is done through the gifts, skills and talents of the volunteers. In SUNI we have a staff team of 17 but alongside this, we have a volunteer team of over 2500…. so although we as staff meet often in 157 Albertbridge Road, we are so very aware that our team isn’t in the building and so thankful for the team effort that enables us to do all we do.

Right Thing in the Right Context

Drew Steele
Outreach Ministry Leader

Over the breadth of our 41 teams, I was astounded by how individual each one was in their culture, activities, participants and methods of sharing the love of God.

In the summer of 2015, we had 41 Scripture Union Camps and Missions teams taking place all across Northern Ireland - 16 residential Camps and 25 Mission teams. The impact is difficult to measure, let alone comprehend, but it was an incredible privilege for me to personally visit every single team and see God working in and through our fantastic volunteers in every location.

New SU Groups

Paul Cameron
Primary Schools Co-ordinator Leader

I often say that if the apostle Paul were here today he would choose to work in schools.

I often say that if the apostle Paul were here today he would choose to work in schools. Schools are places of influence. The children are there. The doors are open. Could you take up the challenge of helping to reach the next generation through a school SU group? Whether you are a teacher, a classroom assistant, a parent or a member of a local church we would love to help you get started!

BIBLE TIME LINE ASSEMBLIES

Twenty assemblies already written and posted on our website

It all started when a group of ministers and a group of primary school principals both came up with the same idea. Both groups had been talking separately about how to maximise the effectiveness of their primary school assemblies. As is often the case, the ministers were all involved on a rota basis in taking assemblies in the primary schools concerned.

Making Your Mark

Making Your Mark

Will teenagers read the Bible?

Phil Howe
Post Primary Schools Co-ordinator

Teenagers read words and are impacted by words all the time but what about listening and hearing God’s words?

Words are important to us.
Words are important to God.
This makes sense since we are made in His image.

Teenagers read words and are impacted by words all the time. From the moment they wake up and need to get their morning fix of Facebook, to replying to the hundreds of texts they receive everyday, to being in constant connection and conversation with their friends and peers.

Making God’s Good News known

The last twelve months have been as busy as ever in the Resource Centre.

Part of our strategy is to “make God’s Good News known to all children.” Over the last year it has been clear to see that we are continuing to do that through our Light material and Bible reading notes. We have supplied over two thousand five hundred copies of Bible notes and over two thousand Light material books to churches all over Northern Ireland!

WHY I HAVE VOLUNTEERED WITH SU FOR OVER 40 YEARS

Alistair McCracken
Chair of SUNI Council

I believe it is a movement where God is at work.

To some extent the answer to that question goes back over 50 years. I went as a teenager to Carrickfin canvas camp and there I encountered officers and boys who modelled what it meant to follow Jesus. Some of those people are still my friends. Over the intervening years I have been part of CSSM teams in a number of centres. What an opportunity to share with gifted, energetic team members, and to see God at work in the lives of children and young people. Many of those children and young people are now leaders in their churches and organisations.
