Family Missions (SUFM) runs programs at popular holiday or regional locations. Family Festivals (previously Beach Missions) has been adopted to identify both these location possibilities.
Join the team of people from different churches who run activities in the context of relationships with the team, the participants and the local community. The team shares God’s love by life and word, with children, teens, adults and families. Be involved whatever your age, there is a place for you. Use the skills you already have or learn new skills.
Team fees cover the cost of food, accommodation, volunteer and public liability insurance and the mission program. Team meetings and the SU Training day will get you ready to be involved in relationships, activities and sharing the great message of God’s love.
Participate as a holiday maker or if you live in the community where Family Festivals are located. Partner with Family Missions in supporting teams by prayer or in giving financial support to help the teams go.

SU Neighbourhood Outreach (SUNO) supports local people doing mission, sharing the love of Jesus and bringing about the Kingdom of God in their local area. Whether aimed at a geographical or an interest community, SUNO supports projects that explore innovative ideas for mission and community development. With the support of SU’s experience, resources and management structures you can explore new and creative models of ministry, or run tested program options.
SU believes that mission and outreach programs are most effective when they occur in the context of ongoing relationships, and people ‘journeying’ together. We encourage incarnational mission – where people, groups and churches become involved in communities, sharing in the lives of those they seek to share God’s good news with. SUNO staff will help you explore what this means for your mission activities.
SUNO offers support and training to those already practicing mission, and support, consultancy and organisational structures to those exploring ideas for mission.
