HIV Programme Resources
These resources are designed to help congregations raise awareness about and funds for HIV initiatives in Scotland and beyond.
Souper Sunday is a special act of worship led by elders (any Sunday of the year) to raise awareness of the many issues around HIV, as well as to raise money for HIV initiatives around the world. The worship is followed by a simple lunch of soup and bread.

Soup or scoop? For a change, why not hold a Sundae Sunday, using ice-cream instead of soup?
World AIDS Day
World AIDS Day is held on 1 December each year. This is a time when we remember people who have died from AIDS-related illnesses, as well as those who are living with HIV. It is an opportunity for people around the world to unite to eradicate AIDS, to give thanks for the progress that has been made, and to reflect on what still needs to be done. It is also a time to commit anew to ensuring that no one is left behind.
