Празднование 150 лет!





In 2017 Scripture Union will celebrate its 150th year of ministry. No matter where you live, and no matter what your role with Scripture Union (council, staff, volunteer, supporter, contributor, partner organisation… or even a new friend!), we want you to know you are welcome in the SU family and we invite you to take part in this historic celebration in one or more of the following ways:



Please pray for Scripture Union in your country and around the world.  Prayer has powered this ministry of 150 years and today we need it more than ever.   If you do not already receive our quarterly prayer news, please email to be added to our mailing list.

Please mark 2 June 2017 in your diary as a special day of prayer as together we celebrate the anniversary of the very first SU ministry gathering.



As part of our celebrations we are launching a special campaign to raise US$2,350,000 to enable us to initate and develop new ministries around the world with a special focus on:

  • reaching children who need the Good News of Jesus most and have little opportunity or access
  • growing ministry in areas of the world where spiritual and physical need is greatest

We are inviting every friend of Scripture Union to make a contribution to the ministry.  Every gift will help.  To make your gift now, please click here for gifts by credit card or click here for other ways to give.

National Movements around the world will be conducting their own celebration events.  We encourage you to contact your national Scripture Union office to find out what’s planned…and how you can get involved.

We hope 2017 will be a year of looking back with thanks to all God has done in the past, and looking forward in faith to all God has for us as a global movement in the future.  Thanks so much for your part in what God is doing through Scripture Union today!
