The SGU publishes its magazine "Peace and Truth" quarterly.

The aims of the Sovereign Grace Union are:

  • To further the proclamation and defence of the doctrines of Free and Sovereign Grace.
  • To print and reprint literature expounding such doctrines.
  • To hold Conferences and Meetings to re-affirm the old truths in these days of apostacy and declension.
  • To circulate tracts, pamphlets and books, maintaining the Doctrines of Grace, which may be presented to the Union for that purpose, and to print and circulate such tracts, etc., for which any person, or Society, undertakes to provide the funds.
  • To raise a testimony against the evils of Priestcraft, Popery, Ritualism, Arminianism, Rationalism, Liberalism and Higher Criticism.
