Dear valued partner and friend,
On behalf of the Executive Council, staff and the many volunteers which make up Scripture Union of South Australia, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our website.
Scripture Union started in 1867 in Wales and has since spread to over 130 countries around the world. Each country operates independently, seeking best practice according to the local situation. As we partner with the many communities in which we work, we strive in our efforts to build and to assure ‘sustainable’ long term relationships with them.
Incorporated as an autonomous-movement since 1947, SUSA is a not-for-profit Christian organisation that provides religious education and services, primarily for children and youth. We specialise in facilitating programs ranging from religious education in both public and private schools, life-changing camps for children and youth, to our ever-popular family beach-holiday programs.
Through our website you will discover our rich history and legacy which makes up the SUSA family, and see the many programs we have to offer. In striving to sustain and build on our remarkable success our focus then and now is our mandate: central to our being and purpose is the mission of the Gospel, namely to introduce Jesus’ message of life, love and hope to children, young people and their families. It is my sincere hope that you will also discover our commitment to the safety and well-being of the children of South Australia, and to the communities in which they live.
As the Executive Director, it is my privilege to lead a team of outstanding individuals, who are solely committed to the cause of introducing Jesus to children, young people and their families through the message of life, love and hope. Currently, Scripture Union of South Australia has 12 staff and around 700 volunteers who facilitate programs that engage with approximately 6000 children and young people throughout the State, annually.
Friends, our only reason for being is to enable children, young people and their families the opportunity to hear and respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ. I personally thank you for visiting our site, and for your support and commitment to the cause.
