Scripture Union

Leader: Steve Younger

During the current Covid-19 restrictions for Children’s activities, our Scripture Union group has moved to meeting online using Zoom. It still meets at 6:30pm on Friday nights and finishes about 7:30pm. This group is for children of Primary School age. There are no fees or subscriptions charged but a membership application form must be completed with full contact details.

Once a year we have an annual weekend away at Lendrick Muir (Scripture Union’s Residential Centre at Rumbling Bridge). This is currently not available until Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.

The Scripture Union online Zoom group is led by the Pastor. He works in partnership with Scripture Union (Scotland) and has an annual ‘Protecting Vulnerable Groups’ (or PVG) check made. Scripture Union is a global inter-denominational Christian organisation which aims to give children and young people the opportunity to learn about Jesus and make their own response to Him.

The usual format of our Junior SU is a time of singing Christian songs and choruses, a teaching time related to a Biblical story, and a games time. There is a tuck- shop available as well. Two of our leaders have First Aid training. Our aim is to create a safe Christian environment where the children can have fun as they learn together and can make up their own minds about following Jesus.
