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.
Back to School with God Sunday is a great way to commit your children, young people and school staff into God’s hands at the start of another school year.
Resources for an All-Age Service with accompanying Powerpoint slides as well as additional materials are FREE to download www.suni.co.uk/Schools/WithGod and to ensure ongoing Prayer, follow-up ideas are suggested.
This is a pivotal role in the organisation both to the General Director and our ministry at large. As the ministry of Scripture Union continues to grow, and particularly the remit of the GD, the need for strong administrative and organisational support becomes even more important.
This is a great opportunity for a highly organised, effective and personable individual to join our team in a role that offers both routine and varied workload.
Continue to pray for all the children and young people who took part in a camp or mission this summer praying especially for Christian people in their lives who can encourage them on and help develop their faith throughout the year.
