  • What we do

    SUMT stands for Scripture Union (our umbrella body) Ministries (the various things we do) 

    Trust (the fact that we're a local non-profit organisation).


    Our main aim as a charity is to bring "Faith Within Reach" of every child and young person on the Isle of Man, supporting their holistic development, while continually encouraging them to come their own conclusions.

    We do this in two main and separate ways.


    1.) Curriculum (within a classroom context): In Curriculum sessions students are given opportunities to think through their own beliefs; they are never told what they should or shouldn't believe. We believe that God is interested in the development of every area of a child's life, regardless of their personal faith choices. Therefore we want to partner with schools to help enhance the spiritual and moral aspects of the curriculum even if that means no faith content is delivered.


    2.) Discipleship (outside of a classroom context): We believe that God is interested in giving children and young people opportunities to respond appropriately to the challenge of a Christian Worldview, particularly the challenge to follow Jesus Christ. Because of this we partner with schools and churches to provide places and opportunities for children and young people to ask questions, engage in teaching, and respond personally.

  • Give

    SUMT are a faith organisation, funded by the generosity of churches and individuals. We are looking for both churches and individuals who will partner with us, giving us what they can afford each month, or each year. This way we can keep offering all of our services to churches and schools free of charge.


    Please help us to make this a possibility by partnering in this way. Below is a link to our ten year vision, including a standing order form. Take a few moments to read it, and if you want to help us make this a reality, consider what you can give.


    Thank you.
