What is a SUPA Club?
SUPA Clubs (Scripture Union Primary Age) are Christian clubs for kids operating in primary schools throughout Australia. SUPA Clubs can be run as a breakfast, lunch or after school program. It is an exciting time with fun games, interesting craft, singing, drama, stimulating stories from the Bible, and the occasional treat. It gives children an opportunity to investigate some of life’s challenging questions .
SUPA Clubs operate in schools with the permission of the principal and they are staffed by volunteers from the local community and churches. Children must have permission from a parent or guardian to attend a SUPA Club.
What is the purpose of SUPA Club?
- To provide a friendly, fun & stimulating club atmosphere in which kids build meaningful relationships.
- For kids to have the opportunity to hear about Jesus and the Christian story and to investigate life’s questions.
- To provide opportunities for kids to learn to help and care for each other, develop leadership and team skills and serve each other and the school community.
Who are the leaders?
The leaders are all members of local churches who believe that everyone should have the opportunity to investigate Christianity for themselves.
Scripture Union ACT oversees the running of the club. All volunteers are required to complete a screening process, which includes a police check and ChildSafe training before commencing helping with a SUPA Club.
