Scripture Union of Kenya
Scripture Union is an international movement began as a children’s mission in Britain in 1867. Its original name was the Children’s Special Service Mission. The Scripture Union as such began in 1879 as a system of daily Bible reading to “follow up” those who had become Christians through the children’s missions. The two names were used interchangeably until 1960 when Scripture Union became the official name of the movement.
The Bible reading aspect of the movement quickly spread to other countries. Within 10 years from 1879, world-wide circulation of SU Bible reading cards reached 470,000 in 28 languages. This was largely through missionaries from Britain who saw the value of the SU method of Bible reading in the new churches that God was bringing into being through their work.
Today, Scripture Union of Kenya works among children, youth and families, filling them with hope, transforming families and communities. Seeking volunteers to provide human-support among the resource-challenged communities: Teaching, sports, administration, health and sanitation, manual skills e.g. construction and drilling, etc.
Scripture Union of Kenya raises its support from individual members, churches and other institutions through member subscriptions, donations and grants. SUK is a volunteer ministry and works with and through voluntary workers all over the country in the different areas of ministry.
