As a Volunteer led organisation, our volunteers are the most important part of our team – we simply could not achieve a fraction of the things we do without the help of over 200 people, who give of their time so generously because they love the Lord and wish to serve Him. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, bringing their own unique gifts to support the work of Scripture Union and the Christian Church in Ireland and Internationally.
Volunteering with SU is exciting and rewarding. With so many options we can use everyone’s unique talents and gifts!
Scripture Union recognises God’s personalised and individual mark on every person he created.
You have the skills and personality that is anointed by God and can be used by God to serve HIS purposes in this land
It’s just a matter of understanding His purpose for you!
CAMPS/ KIDS CLUBS
Volunteers are especially needed for our camps – no special skills are needed, other than a willingness to share God’s word with young people and families, but if you have a set of skills, we will give you plenty of opportunity to put them to use. We can provide full training for working with your preferred age group. Camps are mainly based in Ovoca Manor and include our publicly promoted camps as well as those targeted at specific schools. CSSM takes place in Greystones, Co. Wicklow and other camps are held in the Border Counties.
Have you a practical skill or are you a qualified trades-person? Maintenance is an ongoing job at Ovoca Manor and sometimes specialised skills are needed. Could you give time to support this important work?
Camps are generally self-catering but cooks are not always available to cater for individual teams. In addition some groups which organise their own events at Ovoca Manor like to use their own caterer. Would you like to go on a register of potentially available cooks?
Our Youth activities in Primary and Secondary schools urgently need help to roll out new programmes. Are you a stay-at-home parent who would have some time while your children are in school? Full training provided!
Probably the most important volunteer role in SU! Everything we do we do by the Grace of God and seek his support and direction in all things. Could you commit to praying regularly for SU?
