All sorts of ways to get involved...

It’s always exciting to be involved in something new and see it grow, develop, and flourish. This is an amazing opportunity to be in on the start of this journey with SU Scotland’s newest centre. We already have a number of volunteers and supporters who are excited about what is happening at Gowanbank. Could you become part of our new venture in Ayrshire?

Pray for us

Gowanbank is owned and operated by SU SCOTLAND, a Christian Charity committed to working with young people in Scotland, helping them to explore the Bible and respond to the significance of Jesus. A Project Team are currently working hard, preparing Gowanbank to support this vision. We would really value your prayer for all the many detailed decisions that will need to be made, and for the challenges that may come their way.


SU Scotland relies heavily on volunteers for it’s work with young people. We also rely on volunteers with practical skills. We’ve already enlisted the help of a number of people who are excited by what is going on at Gowanbank. There are so many ways people can contribute. Willing to help in the 6 acres of grounds? Able to help with stripping wall paper, lifting carpets or painting  walls?  Please GET IN TOUCH.


Work with us

We are going to be recruiting for the people to join the team at Gowanbank, and support the groups who will visit. We are not quite there yet, but when the time comes jobs will be posted on at SU JOBS. If there isn’t something for you just now keep checking as we have new jobs all the time. We also have opportunities to serve at the centre on a GAP YEAR.


As a charity we depend on generous support to develop the activities and facilities at our centres. Gowanbank itself was a gift!  Would you consider joining our team support programme, or make a one off donation to support our development?  Details of what we need for the set up phase can be found on our Development Appeal news story.

You can support us with a ONE-OFF DONATION or set up a REGULAR DONATION.

Spread the word

We really do want more people to hear about Gowanbank and enjoy everything it has to offer. Like us on FACEBOOK and share posts with your friends.
