Shine is an initiative organised by Crown Jesus Ministries, ScriptureUnion NI and Logos Ministries International. This year we are delighted to welcome Scripture Union England & Wales on board as Shine goes NATIONAL. We hope to inspire teachers, Christian group leaders and pupils across these countries to pray for their schools and to motivate them to reach out with the Good News of Jesus.
With all the schools taking part at the same time, this is an opportunity to be part of something bigger across the UK.
Our theme is ‘Do Something’ and it is our hope and prayer that schools in Northern Ireland, England and Wales take the opportunity to ‘Do Something’ for Jesus in their schools, where God has placed them. It is a 3 week resource that happens in November
Helen Warnock, The General Director of Scripture Union Northern Ireland will be leaving the organisation in a few months time. Helen is taking up the post of Principal of Belfast Bible College. We wish Helen every success and God’s blessing as she takes on this important and challenging role.
Helen has been General Director of SUNI for thirteen years. During that time she has seen the movement grow and extend its ministry. Helen has been instrumental in shaping the direction of SU’s work in Northern Ireland which has seen the formation and development of seven E3 Schools Districts, growth in the Camps and Missions work and production of exciting new resources. She has been a catalyst and leader in Northern Ireland in helping to shape thinking around youth ministry. We will all miss her commitment, creativity, spirituality and passion for Bible engagement.
Please pray for us as we put in place the process to find a replacement for Helen as General Director of SU. Pray that God will direct us to appoint the right person to lead the movement.
Making Your Mark is Scripture Union NI’s annual pupil leadership training!
Whether you are or know pupils who are a president/vice president, on a committee or a senior pupil of influence who you would love helping more, then this is for you. We provide teaching and practical seminars as well as getting pupils together from schools and SU groups all across Northern Ireland for them to glean ideas and wisdom from and to bring back to your school ready to lead alongside their teachers and SU leaders.
This weekend is happening Friday 30th September-Sunday 2nd October 2016
We are excited about our new Venue at Belfast Inst (RBAI)
We have a number of buses available from ourselves (as well as Europa bus station and Great Victoria Train Station being so close) as we want to help get people there as we have seen the benefit this can have for teachers, pupils and SU groups.
Cambridge House Senior SU are running Alpha as follow up to their mission event last month. Pray that it will encourage and strengthen Christian pupils and give others an opportunity to explore Christianity.
