The Scripture Union (SU) has been in existence for 150 years and among its many functions, runs ‘Family Missions’ all across NSW.

Andy Miller, one of the SUFM Tanilba Bay Directors, told News Of The Area, “Our volunteers from Sydney and the Central Coast give up their summer break to serve the community on the peninsula to the best of our ability, and it has been our honour to share this beautiful part of the world with the great people who live here.”

“We see value in bringing the whole family together and especially as a new year begins, it’s a wonderful opportunity to be reminded that there is hope and love to be found for those who seek it.”

“From the moment families enter the Tanilba Bay Primary School grounds, we present an atmosphere of fun with music, games and a jumping castle.”

Over the course of the week, the entire family is taken care of and catered for.

Children are immersed in a music drama, put on by a talented team.

They play games, do craft and are taught from the Bible in fun and relevant ways.

Adults are catered for with ridiculously good coffee, made by a trained barista, incredible craft activities and the chance to have a meaningful conversation in the cafe.

Mornings are always held at the primary school, but then in the afternoons the team meet up with families again and get amongst the community at Tanilba Park, the Skate Park and the Marina.

The whole program is provided to the community free of charge.

The program has finished up a fantastic fourth year this week, and the team at SUFM are already talking excitedly about next year’s program.

Andy Miller said, “It has been our privilege to be here this summer and we look forward to bringing more of it, bigger and better in December 2018, ready for the first week of January 2019.”

News Of The Area will keep families up to date with plans and reminders for next year’s program, so that you too can join in this action packed week of fun for the whole family.
