Whilst we bring our children to church on Sunday and encourage them to get involved in the various
organisations and clubs available during the week, in other words help them to live a life surrounded
by Christian influence, there are still many young people in our country that have little or even no
connection with a church. They do however go to school, and it is this arena that Scripture Union
Northern Ireland (SUNI) aims to work in and “tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the
Lord, His power and the wonders He has done” Psalm 78:4.
The E3 project helps deliver this ministry to local schools and strives to engage with the pupils, equip
and encourage the Christian teachers and asks local churches to come alongside by prayerful
support and partnering. Backed up by local volunteers and support teams, and working alongside local churches, E3 describes its 3 main aims as:
ENGAGING schools pupils with the opportunities and resources that may lead them to encountering Jesus through His word, praying that they can make an informed decision about Jesus and His truth.
EQUIPPING Christian teachers and pupils by giving them support and encouragement to facilitate growth in Christian maturity and to encourage them to be salt and light in their schools.
EMPOWERING churches to actively pray, support and get involved in Schools Ministry by partnering with the E3 Schools Project.
