Scripture Union Weekend 2015

On the weekend of Friday 26th – Sunday 28th June members of Grosvenor’s active Scripture Union made their way north to Derganagh House in Ballycastle where 51 pupils and 5 members of staff enjoyed a fun-filled time of praise, worship and fellowship.

With places on the weekend in such demand, the nearby Ballyholme Primary School in Portrush was also deployed as a venue at which the male pupils were housed. The guest speaker for the weekend was former pupil Jonny Campbell, who left the School in 2008, now works for the independent charity ‘Love for Life’ and is soon due to marry fellow G.G.S. alumna Naomi Steenson. Jonny spoke on the subject of John, Chapter Four and contributed strongly to a series of excellent study sessions, also featuring superb worship led by Upper Sixth pupils Marc Williamson and Katelin Fiddis.

At other times during the weekend activities undertaken included: beach games, quizzes and a trip into Ballycastle, all of which took place against the backdrop of superb weather throughout.

Many thanks to Upper Sixth Committee members Marc Williamson, Eve McLelland, Sammy Bannister and President Sarah Whitcroft, whose selfless desire to see God exalted in Grosvenor has shone through throughout the year, and whose diligent organisation helped to make the weekend such a fitting climax to a successful year.

Gratitide is also due to teachers Mrs Buchanan, Mrs Caulfield, Mr Cowan, Mr Winters, Mr Young and Mrs Black, the latter of whom was responsible for organising the entire weekend, without whose presence the event would not have been able to run.

Well done to all who have helped the S.U. to thrive in Grosvenor throughout 2015 and we wish all of its departing Upper Sixth members the best of luck in whatever avenue they choose to pursue over the coming years.
