By the turn of the century, Scripture Union was present in over 120 countries with a strong commitment to expressing the aims of SU in ways appropriate to each context. As the world increasingly became globally connected, opportunities for mutual support, sharing, and partnership within Scripture Union and with other agencies were developing. In 2012 Scripture Union around the world embarked on a global initiative, ‘Living Hope’, to define global priorities for ministry and leadership development. In order to fulfil these God given priorities and better operate in a globalised setting, major structural changes were agreed, the first since 1960. Regions were dissolved, replaced by Community Groups and a Global Board.
Today, Scripture Union remains committed to working with the Churches to make God’s Good News known to children, young people and families and to helping people of all ages to meet God through the Bible and prayer. There are now many varieties of ministry around the world. Our vision is that, as people of all ages come to faith in Christ, they will be the means of transformation in their communities, the nations, and the world. Click here for an overview
