Scripture Union South Africa


Local is lekker, and we believe SU’s Bible-reading guides help to disciple young South Africans better than any others. Written locally, they are unique and relevant. And we believe God speaks to young and old every time they meet with Him in the Bible, through the Holy Spirit. SU produces a range of home-grown Bible engagement tools for pre-school to adult readers. These include Closer to God, Khula (annual for teenagers), Khula Kids and Come Along. South Africa faces a dearth of morals and the word of God goes a long way in providing this much needed foundation.

Our resources include:

  1. Bible Reading Notes
  2. Bible Reading Challenge
  3. Training Material
  4. Lifeskills

SU is active in hundreds of primary and high schools across South Africa, where our staff resource and support voluntary workers to run evangelistic programmes. Through this work thousands of otherwise unchurched children and young people are learning more about the good news of Jesus Christ. Given the multi-faith nature of our schools, it is vital that Christian teachers are also supported and encouraged to witness to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. School Christian Groups play and important role in achieving this objective.


Through our Lifeskills programme for senior primary and junior high school pupils, young people are thought how to develop a positive self-image; make right choices; handle sexual and family relationships responsibly and how to overcome prejudice and cope with the temptation of crime.


SU believes in the benefits of wholesome and healthy outdoor activities in young people’s development. We run many children’s and teens’ camps, where young people enjoy the fun of being together, and have the opportunity of thinking more deeply about spiritual things.


Non-residentual holiday clubs under the SU banner are a feature in many communities; where for no cost children enjoy the fun of activities, and learn more about Jesus Christ and His love for them.


Intergral to all our programmes is the training given to all our leaders. Scripture Union staff train and enable thousands of volunteer leaders who serve on our activities, as well as leaders of school Christian groups. Team building exercises, spiritual challenges and training in communication skills lead to a growth in personal development and character. These young people return to enrich their own communities through new skills learnt.
