Volunteering with Scripture Union could be the most fun and rewarding thing you ever do!
Holidays and missions update
We have come to the reluctant conclusion that we will not be able to run our normal full programme of residential summer holidays in 2021. However we hope to put together some last minute holidays that we will run if the regulations on social distancing are lifted, and some of our holidays will also be happening online.
The good news is that we expect many of our missions and holiday clubs to be happening as normal in a Covid-secure way, and we will publish more details of these shortly.
That's a very bold statement but one that's echoed by those who've joined one of our teams. Not only is it great fun, but it's a great way to build relationships, develop your skills and get real life experience of working with children and young people. With many opportunities, there's something for everyone!
Whether you are able to commit a week during the holidays, a regular day, six months or more, we have lots of exciting and life-changing opportunities
Simple... it will change your life! Volunteers return home challenged, encouraged and fired-up with a burning desire to serve God in their area. They also make long-lasting relationships with other team members.
Volunteers also play a part in changing the lives of the children and young people who attend. A national Christian Research survey of residential holidays showed that more than ten per cent of children and young people surveyed became Christians as a direct result of attending a holiday. And, in almost every case, children and young people showed significant growth in spirituality and understanding of the Bible after an event. Volunteers play a major role in these results and 99 per cent of those surveyed described volunteers as 'good' or 'excellent'.
