NISCU has been working with children and young people for over 50 years, supporting the local church and local communities. We began in Carnforth in the 1960’s and since then have grown to cover most of Cumbria, North Lancashire and the Craven Area in Yorkshire.
NISCU works to serve the local church in reaching out to the children and young people in their schools’ community. We see ourselves and local churches acting together in encouraging, enabling and envisaging the next generation of church; to not let the baton fall to the ground in our generation but to actively seek God and work together so that this baton may be passed on and taken further than we have done.
Our Statement of Purpose
To provide children and young people in education (currently in the north west of England) with knowledge and understanding of the Christian faith as presented in the bible, and to support children and young people who choose to express their faith in their community.
NISCU is committed to:
- Providing resources and responding to opportunities that positively contribute to school life both formally and informally in accordance with NISCU’s purpose.
- Promoting of the spiritual and emotional well-being of children and young people through the expression and application of Christian values.
- Being non-denominational in its work and presenting an understanding of the Christian faith that reflects the beliefs set out In its Basis of Faith.
- Building mutually supportive links with local churches and contributing to welcoming children and young people into a safe and nurturing Christian environment, enabling them to take a full part in the community of the church.
