Scripture Union Hungary works with the established churches of Hungary to spread God’s good news to children, young people and families.
Christianity Explored and it’s follow up-s are run by many Churches every year in Hungary. About 350-400 children attend the summer clubs each year.
We are constantly surprised at how God can use a few resources to go a long way. Generous gifts of time, effort and money enable us to continue serving.
- £10 buys 160 envelopes for sending out Bible Notes.
- £50 keeps the lighting and heating on for a month.
- £100 pays for antivirus softwares for all 3 PC-s for 2 years.
- £250 helps a volunteer to come to serve in a summer camp.
- £400 pays for the office rent for one month.
Fundraising campaigns in 2023:
- Ukrainian refugee camp: From 24 – 28 July we will organise a sportcamp for Roma kids who fled Ukraine. Naturally they cannot pay any participation fee, so we need funds for all camp materials. Reference: UKR
- Craft materials: For this year’s program we are collecting the following materials (or funding for them): coloured craft foam sheets, spraypaints, markers, glue. Reference: CRAFT
- T-Shirts: Our camp T-shirts for volunteers are very used so we would like to produce new ones. We will need approximately £400 for the whole project. Reference: TSHIRT
- Support summer missionaries: We would like to give our summer volunteers (especially the students) a small symbolic amount to support their service. Reference: SUMMERMISSION
- Utility Bills: Since the end of last year, the costs of our utility bills (gas, electricity) skyrocketed, and it is getting increasingly difficult for us to cover our bills. While we are looking into alternative solutions, we need your support to continue our work in the office. Reference: UTILITY
If you would like to contribute to the work of Scripture Union Hungary here are some options…
Praying for Hungary is a valuable gift. We know that praying takes time and can sometimes be hard. However we believe that God hears our prayers and answers them. Put a note on the fridge and remember us when you are hungry! (We know it’s a bad pun but it might work!!)
The gift of time
Consider volunteering your time to help on a summer club team.
One of the volunteers this year said „It was a fantastic week, with a great opportunity for making new friends, seeing new places and sharing God’s word.” Team members can be any age over 18. Whether you are retired or a student or somewhere in between, we have a place for you!
You can ask your bank to pay the same amount to Scripture Union Hungary every month. Regular giving helps us enormously because it allows us to plan our resources effectively. If you would like to help us in this way you can put money in our UK account with SU England. Email email@example.com for more information.
You can give a one-time gift to Scripture Union by sending a cheque to our bank account in the UK. Single donations are good ways of paying for specific projects. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
One church last year held a Hungarian evening to raise money for Scripture Union Hungary. In one night they made a huge difference to the work here. If you need some information to help you raise money get in touch!
Further information (The small print)
Scripture Union Hungary is a non-profit organisation. We have two full-time and two part-time employees but we rely on volunteers in many areas. None of our staff will make their fortune working with us! We are financially accountable to our board and also to Scripture Union Europe who scrutinize our accounts.
