Each Summer over 6,500 children and young people explore God’s Word and encounter Him at an SU Camp or Mission.  Our staff and volunteers count these opportunities as a massive privilege and one we literally plan our whole year around.

Over the last number of weeks, during the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have been praying and considering what this year’s Camps and Missions could look like should social distancing continue.

However, after a detailed review and exploration of various options, it is with a heavy heart that the Council of SUNI have made the difficult decision to cancel all Camps and Missions for Summer 2020.

God has been so good to us throughout our preparations and we still have so much to give Him thanks for.  Although Summer will not look like we had hoped, we continue to trust His purposes in all things.

Please continue to follow our social media platforms for online resources and materials for children, young people and families throughout this time.

We thank everyone who partners with us in this ministry, for their preparations thus far and for their support; local churches, team leaders, volunteers, prayer supporters, activity providers, those give financially, residential venues, cooks, approvers, mentors and the staff team… it’s a long list!

Summer will look different in 2020 but please know you can continue to support the ministry of SU in the following ways:

Thank you and see you all soon!

This is short message for those who have either booked to attend one of our Camps and those who usually plan their summer around an SU Mission (like CSSM).  And not forgetting all parents and volunteers too! 

God has been answering many of our prayers in our preparations for Summer 2020!  We are remembering His faithfulness day by day as we continue to make plans for this year’s Camps and Missions.

We are, of course mindful of the current restrictions in place and therefore, we are also working through contingency measures should this Summer need to look different from normal.  

Please keep checking the Scripture Union NI website and social media platforms for updates in relation to our Summer 2020 Camps and Missions.

We really value your prayers we ask God to grant us wisdom for all decisions that are will be as we approach this Summer.

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:

Volunteer Applications 

Applications will still close next Tuesday 31st March.  Be sure to get your form submitted in the next few days!


Access NI ID Checks 

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!
