Scripture Union is an interdenominational and international Christian movement, working with children, young people and families through the effective use of national school systems and other related strategic alliances. It was started in England in 1867 with God giving the vision to Josiah Spiers at a resort town beach called Llandadno in Wales. He was later joined by many others to help birth this movement which started as Children Special Services Mission. During those years the church thought children would not understand the Word of God but they were expected to come to church, sit still and listen. At Llandadno beach Spiers realized that children were able to understand the Word of God if presented in a way that appealed to children.
