Portarlington Scripture Union Family Mission

Portarlington SUFM

What is it?

A free holiday event for children in Portarlington. Activities range from sports to crafts, music and storytelling, giving children an opportunity to have fun and meet new friends while on holidays.

When is it?

The annual Beach Mission will run daily from 28th December 2019 – 9th January 2020, excluding 1/1 and 7/1. Sessions run from 10:30am – noon followed by a BYO lunch, and 7:00pm – 8:30pm.

Who can come?

Kinder-aged children through to Year 12 students are welcome to join in the fun. Parents are also encouraged to come and join in. Our team, easily identifiable in their purple shirts, are on hand to register your child(ren) and guide them to participate in activities.

Join in

To ensure the safety of your children while they attend Portarlington SUFM, we need to collect a few details. You can pick up a form from the Portarlington SUFM leaders at any point throughout the program.

Who we are

Portarlington Scripture Union Family Mission, or Portarlington SUFM for short, is a group of volunteers from various Christian denominations and churches across Victoria who love to volunteer their time to plan and run the program over summer. We do this because we have a passion to share the Good News and our love from God. Safety and care is important to us and all team members are required to have a current Working With Children Check, and are fully trained through SU’s ChildSafe.
