Are you a Champion of Ancora?

Not only has Scripture Union created a world class game, but it’s backing this up with a whole wealth support material. All on an on-going basis, and all free of charge.

We’ve already reached over 140,000 children, but the potential for the game through our churches, schools and clubs is so much more than this. To take it to the next level, we need motivated parents, grandparents, ministers, youth/children’s workers, teachers and concerned adults to proactively promote the game and its uses in reaching out to children (8-11 years).

Have you got just a few hours a month to become a Champion of the game?

This could involve promoting its use to:

  • Other parents/grandparents/relatives
  • Your church leadership/church/local and regional events
  • Teachers and those with professional access to children in this age group

 

Child Safety issues:

It is essential that you do not put yourself in a position where you are alone with children (other than your own) whilst promoting Guardians of Ancora. This is for your own, and their protection. If there is any possibility that this is the case then you will need to have a current DBS check.

Furthermore, to promote into schools you’ll have to be DBS checked. You’ll also need the backing of your church or a recognised mission agency (local or national).

If you already have an Enhanced DBS Certificate registered with the DBS Update Service, then it is possible that we may well be able accept this. If you don’t currently have a DBS, then you will need to apply for one. Scripture Union provide this service. To discuss DBS items in more depth or to apply, then please contact 01908 856177 or dbs@scriptureunion.org.uk
