It was great to hear some of the stories the three girls brought back from their energetic and enjoyable 6-day camp at Scoughall, Scripture Union Scotland’s youth facility near North Berwick, East Lothian. Katie, Danielle and Emily moved to a new group and location this year, joining another 26 young people, drawn largely from Scotland and the north of England. Twice-daily devotions, and wide-ranging discussions about their Christian faith, sat alongside ropes courses, ‘tubing’, BBQs on the beach, etc. They returned exhausted, but buzzing – their faith expanded & with both new friendships forged & old friendships strengthened. We give thanks for Scripture Union, for its great track record, and for its ongoing work with young people.

Away from it all holidays
Away From It All (AFIA) is a holiday scheme primarily funded by members of Mothers’ Union, to help people who wouldn’t otherwise be able to have a holiday. The scheme is open to anyone who is experiencing stress in their family life. By going on an AFIA holiday families are enabled to spend quality time together and rebuild relationships.
There are many ways to get involved in AFIA holidays to help families in need to a much needed break:
