Adventure and faith

Scripture Union Ireland is a movement that consists of approximately 15 staff and 400 volunteers. We specialise in running secondary school faith retreats both in schools and in our adventure centre; Ovoca Manor. In Ovoca Manor we also facilitate christian conferences, youth groups and run the majority of our residential camps for children and teenagers. In 2017 we launched a film series called NUA which is focused on some of the questions teenagers have been asking and encouraging conversation on those topics.

Please give generously

Your gift will help us to transform
the lives of children in Ireland (Republic of).
