Ministry Snapshots

  • Overview

    On 1 June 2021 Scripture Union in the Northern Territory, Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, the ACT, South Australia and Western Australia merged to become Scripture Union Australia. This merger was motivated by a desire to share resources and expertise for the purpose of increasing Scripture Union’s reach in Australia and it’s capacity to enhance existing ministries and birth new ones as well. Scripture Union Australia vision is to see each child, young person and their families throughout Australia come to experience God’s love and good news. Please join us in praying for the newly formed movement as they seek to work alongside local churches to realise this goal.
