Ministry snapshots from Ireland (Republic of)

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.
