Celebrating 150 years of Scripture Union

Scripture Union has been dedicated to the discipleship of children and teenagers since the beginning of our ministry in 1867. Josiah Spiers, the pioneer of SU, believed children could have a personal living relationship with Christ and presented the Gospel and Bible in a way that they could understand. He started the ministry by gathering children in a house and teaching them. 

From that small beginning, Scripture Union has expanded to a community of over 130 movements worldwide. Each movement has the same aim of working with the churches to make God’s Good News known to children, young people and families, and to encourage people of all ages to meet God daily through the Bible and prayer. This is so that they may come to personal faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, grow in Christian maturity and become both committed church members and servants of a world in need.

Today, Scripture Union is fulfilling this mission through indigenous leadership and specialist programs and ministries, carefully designed to fit the context of each country and culture. We are looking forward to celebrating 150 years.
