Current Connecting You stories

When the son of a Halifax Christian took his own life, his family and church were devastated. They realised how little hope and self-esteem local teenagers had, and resolved to take the light of Christ out to them. Thanks to your support, now young people in Halifax are hearing – and receiving – God’s vital message of hope.
Through your support, a group of inner-city youngsters with no church background were able to go on Centre Spot, a weekend residential break, to play sport and find out more about Jesus. For one 14-year-old, Luke, the break was life-changing.
Through your generous gifts, churches can plan a fabulously positive celebration of Halloween using our free Light Party Pack. This year it includes ideas on how to share Jesus, the light of the world, with children and young people who aren’t from a church background. And, as Alice Lawrence discovered, the theme of light and positivity is universally popular.
In 2008, when teenagers Esther Darrah and Sam Adams met on SU’s sailing holiday Harriers on the Norfolk Broads (See picture below), little did they know that ten years later they would marry!
150 years ago a man on a beach in North Wales gathered some children together and they wrote 'God is love' in the sand. 150 years later people are still gathering together on beaches across England and Wales to share that same truth.
