These are unprecedented days that we find ourselves in, with an ever-increasing amount of uncertainty among us all. Many of us feel powerless, however, there is something we can all do – pray.
We have been invited, and are extending the invite to you, to pray for the current climate we find ourselves in. We will be joining many other churches and organisation from all over Ireland on Sunday 5th April (Palm Sunday) from 3pm – 4pm as we seek for a move of God. Come Holy Spirit.
In these last few weeks, our year of planning for Summer 2020, has encountered a curve ball due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the measurers in place to stop the spread of the virus.
For all those who have signed up to volunteer as a leader at one of our Camps or Missions please know SUNI is still planning for Summer 2020 to go ahead. SU Staff are however, in the process preparing for every eventuality.
We are still accepting applications for anyone interesting in serving this Summer. Therefore, if you have already, or if you are planning on signing up, we have some important information for you:
Applications will still close next Tuesday 31st March. Be sure to get your form submitted in the next few days!
It is necessary that we check every volunteers’ ID for Access NI as part of their SUNI application.
In light of coronavirus COVID-19 and the need to reduce non-essential social contact, we cannot complete ID Checks face-to-face. Therefore, please see the NEW step by step instructions for how to get your ID checked. Click here.
New Leaders’ Event
Finally, for those who have never served with SU C&M before, the New Leaders’ Event that was scheduled for Fri 3rd April has been cancelled and SU staff will contact you as soon as possible with an alternative event.
We really value the prayers of everyone connected and involved in SU as we approach every Summer and especially this year, under the current circumstances.
Thank you for playing a vital role in the ministry of SUNI and we really hope to see you, in person, soon!
Due to the current circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus, we are having to put in place some measures to help protect both you and our staff, in accordance with government advice.
For now, we have decided to close our resource centre to the general public until further notice.
Camps & Missions Access NI ID Checks
Regarding volunteers of Camps & Missions teams this summer, we have also taken the measure to suspend all Access NI ID checks by SUNI Staff and team leaders until further notice.
We ask that you please keep check of your emails and social media for further updates on how to get you ID checked.
Interceding in Hope
We understand that these are unprecedented times, but we ask that you bear with us as we try and figure out the right course of action over the coming months.
Although these days are uncertain, we are choosing to believe fully in God’s sovereignty. We trust that He is in full control and we are interceding for Him to move during this time as we seek to continue to share God’s Good News with children, young people and families.
