Scripture Union Weekend 2017

During the weekend of Friday 23rd – Sunday 25th June Grosvenor’s Scripture Union society made the short journey to Lorne House in Cultra where around forty pupils and members of staff enjoyed a busy weekend of worship, fellowship and fun.

The pupils congregated on Friday evening when they enjoyed their first worship session of the weekend, based on the theme of ‘Freedom in Christ’, which included a testimony from guest speaker Alison Martin along with music led by Deputy Head Girl Sarah Myles.

The following day began with more worship in the morning, following breakfast, before the entire S.U. contingent made its way to Cultra train station from where it made the brief trip to Bangor, where the afternoon was spent enjoying the blissful weather whilst shopping, eating, drinking and socialising, amongst other things. Upon return to Lorne House the pupils enjoyed a sumptuous pizza dinner from ‘Little Wing’ as well as more worship, before participating in a challenging and perplexing murder mystery evening where each team was given the chance to question the various suspects before determining the identity of the culprit.

Following a final worship session on Sunday morning it was time for everyone to return home following yet another successful S.U. weekend, thus bringing what has been another busy and successful year to a close.

Many thanks to Grosvenor’s Head of Home Economics Mrs Buchanan, who organised the entire weekend, as well as fellow teachers Mrs Caulfield, Mr Young, Mr Winters, Mr Lendrum and Mr Smith who also attended. Furthermore, gratitude is also extended to this year’s S.U. Committee, led by President Saran Monson, who were responsible for organising much of the weekend as well as various events throughout the year. Finally, last but not least, everybody involved with S.U. offers its thanks to guest speaker Alison Martin, whose participation was hugely appreciated by all; her series of considered and engaging talks throughout the weekend ensured that everybody left Lorne House having been successfully challenged in their faith.

We now look forward to reporting on many further S.U. events throughout what promises to be another busy year in 2017-2018.
