Ministry Snapshots


Since the early 1950s, SUNI has been supporting and resourcing SU groups in schools, with around 1,000 teachers and other leaders involved in running over 250 voluntary groups meeting at lunchtime or after school in communities that are Bible-based, discipleship-oriented and mission focused.  The commitment, faith and dedication of pupils and teachers in these Primary, Post-Primary and Special School communities is a real inspiration.  Their stories are too numerous to recount, but we thank God for the incredible impact they have on the lives of so many.

Since the early 2000s, God has grown our opportunities in schools even further, particularly through development of the E3 Schools’ Projects locally.  Backed up by local support teams, our E3 Workers throughout the country not only engage with and equip schools themselves through assemblies, RE lessons and supporting SU groups, but also work alongside churches in seeking to empower them to think more deeply about how they can support, serve and speak into their local school communities.
