Volunteering with Scripture Union could be the most fun and rewarding thing you ever do!

That's a very bold statement but one that's echoed by so many of those who've joined one of our teams. Not only is volunteering on a Scripture Union holiday lots of 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. 

Whether you are able to commit to one of our holidays or events during the school holidays, a regular day, six months or more, we have lots of exciting and life-changing opportunities across England and Wales. 

Could you say #CountMeIn?

Why volunteer with us?

Put simply, it will change your life and the lives of those you serve!

Volunteers play a massive part in changing the lives of the children and young people who come along as we create opportunities for them to come to know Jesus! We have been organising holidays and activities for children, young people and families for more than 100 years. Each of our events is unique, but they all share the core values of fun, friendship and faith exploration! We'll make sure that you are trained, equipped and supported in whatever role you step into (take a look at the Team Roles below).

Not only that, but volunteers return home from Scripture Union holidays and events challenged, encouraged and fired-up with a burning desire to serve God in their own area. As well as having made long-lasting relationships with other team members and many return year after year!

So, come and join us as we make memories and see lives changed!

Go to our Holidays and Events Listings page to discover our full programme and see where you'd like to volunteer! If you have any questions at all you can check our our FAQ questions below or get in touch with our Holidays & Events Team at [email protected].
