Scripture Union PAAM Staff and Volunteer Software App

Established 150 years ago; founded in England in 1867; Scripture Union is a global movement active in over 120 countries. Scripture Union is a Christian charity, involved in a wide range of exciting activities and initiatives, offering children and young people opportunities to explore the difference Jesus can make to the challenges and adventures of life.

Scripture Union works in wide variety of areas including schools, in the community, with sport, holidays and events.

Scripture Union has been organising holidays, events and activities for children, young people and families for more than 100 years include camping, sleeping in log cabins, outdoor activity centres, luxury boarding schools, sport, adventure, arts and crafts, fun and games, horse riding, sailing, motor sport, performing arts, baking and more! All of Scripture Union's holidays and other events are run by suitably vetted and trained staff and volunteer teams.
