Who We Are

Sharing Jesus since 1867

Scripture Union is a movement of Christians of all ages and stages committed to sharing Jesus with children, young people and families. We are a community of volunteers, supported by a small number of staff, and active in over 130 countries throughout the world. We are interdenominational, working with the churches to passionately, creatively, and prayerfully share the good news of Jesus.

In NSW there are around 3000 volunteers serving through a variety of Scripture Union ministries. Those ministries include Camps, conferences, student Christian groups, leadership training, resource development, and our largest ministry, SUFM (Scripture Union Family Mission - also known as 'Beach Mission').

We pray that our movement might be a tool in God’s hand for the outbreak of revival in NSW in our generation.


Working with the churches, Scripture Union aims:
a. to make God's good news known to children, young people and families and
b. to encourage people of all ages to meet God daily through the Bible and prayer so that they may:
• come to personal faith in our Lord Jesus Christ,
• grow in Christian maturity, and
• become both committed church members and servants of a world in need
