Scripture Union Ireland
Scripture Union is an interdenominational Christian movement. It is a non-profit organisation and a registered Irish Charity (CHY NO. 5875). While an autonomous movement we are privilege to also be part of an international organisation with a significant history in evangelisation amongst children and young people, creating lifelong disciples, developing leadership skills for life, and of course encouraging people of all ages to meet God through bible reading and prayer . As we work out these principles we seek to do so in partnership with all Christian denominations, churches and parishes as we engage in the following activities:
- Residential Retreats, Camps & Outdoor Pursuits
- Holiday activities
- School Retreats in Secondary Schools
- Developing and supporting faith formation initiatives in Parishes and Primary Schools
- Distribution of Scripture-based resources for Schools, Churches, Children and Youth Ministries.
- Training and Development
In accordance with our basis of faith we seek to promote Christian character and values and encourage a healthy lifestyle through participation in our activities. Our hope is that all who participate in our activities will grow in their Christian faith and so become committed church members and servants to a world in need. Our key resources are a small number of dedicated staff and a large number of equally committed volunteers from many different Christian backgrounds. The organisation is directed by a Governing Council and led on a day-to-day basis by the current General Director, Jim Donnan.
