We have all told friends about the amazing ministry that SU does with children, youth and families. You can now give those friends a Ministry Partnership booklet and invite them to also be involved in helping share the gospel by supporting SU.

Contact our office (9371 9100) and we will send you the quantity you need to give to keen friends or place at your church.

Spring is in the air. The temperature is warmer, the footy has finished and at SU WA, the focus is shifting to summer ministry. Once again, hundreds of you will head all over WA to serve God and share the hope and good news of Jesus with young Western Australians. This summer we will again fill WA with fun, friendship, fellowship and faith!

As preparations get underway I hear leaders planning camps and missions where Jesus is modelled in community life, where participants have loads of fun and meet friends and God and where opportunities to speak, share and ask questions about Jesus lead to faith decisions: join me in praying for a powerful summer of God working. Whether out in the field this summer, supporting the work financially or praying fervently, we all play a vital part. Thanks!

Our recent SU at the Beach was great fun and we had a wonderful celebration of 150 years of SU ministry across the world. Check out the drone-assisted photo recreation of the first beach mission!

We also celebrated a new website for the movement, God’s provision of resources, and a resilient, courageous staff team.

People gave generously to our End of Financial Year plea for funds – thank you so much to those who gave. We are not entirely through the financial challenges though, with some cost cutting to occur and a further reduction in tax deductibility for giving likely. But I am confident that God “knows the plans he has for us – to prosper not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29).

It is a privilege to serve the movement in this role. May you know the joy & celebration of Jesus this Christmas and summer.

Mission Trips, On-Campus Learning and Intern Hopefuls Lining Up

2018 is shaping up to be a great year for SU internships. Expressions of interest are already rolling in, and exciting changes to the program are in store. The new year will see an increase in hands-on ministry experience – both through SU programs and camps and with churches, schools and organisations with which we partner.

We are also introducing exciting new on-campus study options, which we plan will involve two mission trips over the internship period.

We’re looking for people who can take initiative and are committed to developing in every way, and most importantly, those with a genuine heart for sharing the gospel with children, young people and families.

SU internships are considered a full-time commitment and include about 10 camps over the year, and 2 days study each week. To find out more or begin an application, head to the Internships Page on our website and hit the ‘REGISTER YOUR INTEREST’ button.

SU at the Beach 2017 was a fantastic celebration of SU WA’s ministry.

We celebrated 150 years of SU Internationally by recreating the words “God is Love” on the beach as was done by Josiah Spiers in England back in 1867 – the start of Scripture Union.

Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers and staff that make this statement come to life – in the fullest – every day through SU ministry.

September marked an exciting new initiative for SUWA when we hosted our inaugural Dinner designed to raise the profile of SU. The evening was an opportunity to invite friends who are not current supporters and to introduce them to our work with children, youth and families.

More than 100 Christians from different churches gathered at Lake Gwelup Christian Church to hear Professor Bruce Robinson AM and Child Protection Worker Tammy Pitman. Tammy moved the audience to tears with her wonderful story of how God rescued her and met her in the person of Jesus Christ when she was a foster child on SUWA camps. Tammy now volunteers regularly to lead camps, driven by a fierce zeal to serve God in this way because “someone might meet God like I did.”

As a young person, were you always asking big questions? Trying to understand God and how He fits in the world?

SU camps always create safe spaces for young people to discover and explore God and faith in ways that show love and acceptance. Recently a camp held a ‘panel’ where leaders would answer questions that campers had anonymously submitted throughout the day:

Is it wrong to feel angry and disappointed in yourself?
Will someone go to hell if they commit suicide?
Is it wrong to feel guilty if someone is worried about you?

These questions were asked and responded to in a way that stretched campers (and leaders) in a supportive environment, offering them personal and spiritual challenge, reinforced by relationships built by the leaders.

What a wonderful way for young people to find their place in God’s creation and amongst His people.
