Through in-person and online training, we're here to equip and support you and your church in mission as together we reach the 95.
Free online seasonal training
Throughout the year we offer free online training sessions to help equip you as you prepare for key times of the year (Easter, Summer, Halloween and Christmas). These sessions aren't about selling you our latest resources (as good as they may be!) but they are all about training and equipping you to engage with the 95% of under-18s not in church as they Connect, Explore, Respond and Grow in their journey of faith.
To access these free training sessions, you will need to have signed up to receive Mission Support from Scripture Union. Discover more about Mission Support and how, together, we can unlock the full potential of your outreach to children and young people who don't go to church.

It may be winter, but summer planning will soon be underway! By the time we meet in April, it won't be long til schools finish and the summer holidays, camps, clubs, events begin!
It can be so easy to get swept up in the practicalities of making an event 'happen', but it's so important that space is created for children and young people to respond to Jesus.
Join us as we unpack how you can create those moments in beautiful simple ways, whatever and wherever you are this summer.
Join us online on:
22nd April at 7:30pm
24th April at 1:00pm
*The link you need to join the online session will be emailed to you in your booking confirmation email. Please note that each session will last 1.5 hours and it is the same content at both sessions.
"Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong."
