Message from the Chair

Thanks to SU supporters, it’s been another fantastic year for making God’s Good News known to children, young people and families.

Volunteers, financial and prayer supporters are the critical ingredients to the vibrant and engaged movement that is SU WA. The results are represented within this Impact Report; inspiring examples of God’s work through Scripture Union. Thank-you for the part you have played in these and other stories of lives transformed by hope and joy through SU WA.

The financial statement shows another year of provision and generosity. In the context of changing patterns of giving in our community, we are grateful for God’s provision of the resources required by SU in Western Australia, and for those who give.

On a personal note, my own family have continued to be positively impacted by SU WA’s work this year. Our teenage holiday camp devotees have had a lot of fun and have been inspired to mature in their relationship with God (and one day, they may even return home with all their possessions!).

During 2018/19, work has continued in earnest with the other Scripture Union states and territories, exploring and planning for a National Scripture Union movement. Our Board have sought God’s wisdom during this time for the right direction for WA, and have actively participated in the extensive planning, prayer and reflection that has guided this process so far. Thankyou to the dedicated members of the SU WA Board who have provided wisdom and good governance to the organisation.
