About Us | Scripture Union

Scripture Union Scotland is part of the worldwide family of Scripture Union movements that began in the nineteenth century and now operate in over 130 countries across the world.

We are a Christian charity working in partnership with local churches and other sympathetic organisations. More than 2,000 volunteers are involved in helping to run our activities, together with around 100 staff and associate workers.

Everything we do is governed by two core values: dependence on God and deepening relationships.

We want to see children and young people:

  • Feeling valued and accepted in every encounter with SU Scotland - being able to express their views, engage with others, and grow in confidence as they recognise and develop their abilities.

  • Exploring the key stories and events from the Bible, reading and studying the Bible on their own and with others, and growing in their understanding of God and what it means to follow him.

  • Having opportunities to learn about Jesus, making the decision to follow Jesus, and having the confidence to reflect this in their choices, attitudes and actions.
