The Welsh team is active in helping children and young people explore the difference Jesus can make to their lives.

We work in both the Welsh and English languages in schools and the community, alongside the local church and our mission partners. We love to use seasonal events like Christmas and Easter, sport and even Scripture Union's award winning digital game Guardians of Ancora/Arwyr Ancora, which is now available in both Welsh and English.

Like all in SU, we are concerned by the fact that 95% of children and young people in England and Wales do not attend church. We would love to help your church be part of changing that statistic by going with you to places where children are but the gospel isn't. Let's be bridges from our schools and our communities to our churches. Together we can make a difference.

What's new in Wales

95% of children and young people are not regularly in church. We want to work with your church to help improve that statistic. We outline how we can help here.
SLAM is a sports base residential aimed at specifically reaching the 95%. Click here to read more.
Matt Lewis and John Settatree visited Scripture Union Lesotho back in February to share ideas and work towards developing a stronger link. Read more here.
Could we help you do mission with our Football Cage?
How Arwyr Ancora can help Welsh-speaking children explore the difference Jesus can make to the challenges and adventures in their lives
SU has a new holiday fund that will stop financial difficulties being a barrier to children and young people enjoying an SU holiday.
It's always such an encouragement to have people come and share the way in which God has revealed himself to them. This happened a few weeks ago at a Christmas town fair where our team were running a 'Star at the Stable'. This is the story of how the nativity story, in it's simplest form impacted the lives of one family.
How can we share the Light of Jesus in a fun and relevant way amid the various Autumn festivities? Lantern trail is one idea that went down a storm in Criccieth. There were Ghostbusters, crazy games, hot dogs, knickerbocker glories, a night time walk, marshmallows toasted on a beach bonfire and the life changing message of Jesus - read on to find out more...
Imagine a room of 10 children getting really excited playing a computer game, they’re singing the theme song and talking through the game as they go “what a jump “ one says “Nailed it” says another.
Now imagine that this award winning game is taking these children through some of the great stories of Jesus life on earth.

Meet the team

We are a team spread over Wales working to help churches engage with children and young people in their schools and communities through sport, digital media and creative programmes.

Mission partners

We believe that it is better to work together. We have lots of local mission partners across Wales that work in schools and within their communities. Find out more about what they are doing and connect with a local mission partner near you.
