Ministry Snapshots

  • Overview

    The ministry of Scripture Union Sri Lanka had its inception in the year 1967, and in 2017 SU Sri Lanka, with great pride, celebrated 50 years of ministry. Our mission to ‘help children meet with Jesus’ comprises Scripture lessons for children aged 5-18. SU Sri Lanka conducts devotions in twelve schools during a week and works closely with Churches to conduct Vacation Bible School programs. Residential camps and one day camps are held annually for children from diverse ethnic, religious, and economic backgrounds. The partnership of SU Sri Lanka with schools and churches helps to foster interfaith communal harmony in a multi-ethnic and multi-religious country.

    At present as Sri Lanka is gradually recovering from the blows of the 2019 Easter Sunday terrorist attacks, the impact of Covid 19 pandemic and the effects of the recent economic and political crisis, Scripture Union Sri Lanka has been able to work through these challenges and reach out to people in need with the Good News of Salvation, Love and Hope in the Lord Jesus Christ.
    SU Sri Lanka has adapted new methodologies according to the given circumstances and has reached out to children, youth, adults, and families through in-person and online programs conducted on daily, weekly and monthly basis.

    SU’s resource base is comprised of three full-time workers and volunteers who shoulder the responsibility of planting the Word of God in the lives of these people and is governed and guided by a board of directors, comprising of a chairman and 8 council members.
