SHINE in Schools

do-something-stamp

Shine is an initiative organised by Crown Jesus Ministries, Scripture Union 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.

 

 

 

SHINE Web Intro from Shine inschools on Vimeo.
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

The dates for this year are:

Week 1: 14-18th November 2016

Week 2: 21-25th November 2016

Week 3: 28th Nov-2nd December 2016

Some Important SUNI News

fullsizerenderHelen 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.

Chair of SUNI Council
