Discovering Life

Everything we do is for young people. We go where they are, get alongside them and do life together. The expressions and experiences look different in each community across Australia, but some things remain the same. There’s never any judgement; there’s often laughter, a spirit of adventure and space for young people to be truly themselves.

SU chaplains have been supporting Australian school communities since 1990.

School chaplains are trained to work in the early intervention and prevention space, providing social, emotional and spiritual support for students, families and staff.

Working in primary and secondary schools, special schools and distant education schools, chaplains help young people dealing with family breakdown, bullying, mental health, friendship, peer issues and more.

SU Australia supports local churches and their communities in making SRE available in NSW and RI available in NT, ensuring classes are delivered in a cohesive, professional and engaging manner.

RI in NT


Since the 1930’s SU has been running camps in Australia that offer a safe, inclusive and action-packed experience for young people to discover life in God’s big story.
Whether you love scaling a cliff face and tubing behind a boat, or you dance, art and drama, or even if new technologies are more your thing, SU Australia’s camping ministry offers hundreds of experiences each year to cater to all interests.
All of our camps include opportunities to explore the Christian faith, where young people will find an open and inclusive atmosphere no matter their background.
