Scripture Union, Northern Ireland

Further Information and F.A.Q.

Each year, Scripture Union organises a series of missions for over 5,000 children and young people. In Northern Ireland these missions have been run for over 100 years. The emphasis is on fun and companionship, with the important dimension of learning more about the relevance of Jesus Christ today.

All Missions are planned with safety and enjoyment in mind, in line with SUNI’s policies on Safeguarding, Health and Safety, Covid 19 Guidelines and GDPR (copies are available on request).

Who will be looking after my child?

All Missions are staffed by volunteers who are approved by SUNI. Teams of volunteers work under the supervision of voluntary team leaders who are carefully selected for their leadership abilities and experience and appointed to their role by the Council of SUNI.

All volunteers are trained according to SUNI’s procedures for Safeguarding children and young people, training covers the areas of: Health and Safety, COVID Safety and Child Protection. Volunteers who handle personal information are also trained in our GDPR procedures.

Each Mission has its own qualified appointed person(s) for First Aid and all activities are carried out under careful and qualified supervision.

Will I have to pay for my child to attend an SU Mission?

There is no charge for children to attend an SU Mission however all children must be formally registered to attend.

Some Missions may run optional excursions which may have a small charge. There may also be a small bookstall at each mission where children and young people can purchase Bibles or reading notes.

What about insurance?

All SUNI Missions are covered by a Public Liability (3rd party) Insurance Policy.

Please note that some activities listed on the website may change due to insurance restrictions unknown at time of uploading onto the site.

In addition to the insurance cover that we provide, we advise everyone to take our cover against personal accident, cancellation and illness.

How do I register my child to attend?

Children and young people must be registered (signed in) at the start of each session.

We require a consent form to be completed for each child/young person who wishes to attend. This can be completed online before the event (via a link) or on arrival (via a QR code).

Where network coverage is unreliable, paper consent forms will be available.

How do we make contact with the Mission Leaders?

Each Mission has its own email account for correspondence with parents/guardians.

The Mission Leaders/Secretaries are best placed to provide information of meeting times, locations, and registration.

For a response to any enquiries, please check your email regularly, including your junk mail folder and add @suni.co.uk to your ‘safe sender’ list.

What if I have a complaint?
