Who we are

Scripture Union is a Christian charity, inviting children and young people to explore the difference Jesus can make to the challenges and adventures of life

Through a wide range of activities and initiatives, we provide opportunities for young people to explore the Bible, respond to Jesus and grow in faith. We also provide some great resources to help others do the same.

We believe every child should have the chance to discover Jesus. And, with an estimated 95% of children in England and Wales not part of a church, we're working harder than ever to take the good news of Jesus beyond the church in exciting and culturally relevant ways.

The Scripture Union movement

Scripture Union is a movement – a group of people with a common heart and desire to see Jesus' love shared with today's young people. The movement comprises volunteers, staff, like-minded partners, supporters and many more.

We have a long and rich heritage, having been established 150 years ago. Founded in England way back in 1867, Scripture Union is now a global movement active in over 120 countries.
