Hello - and thank you so much for praying with us this month.

Many young people will be spending this Easter time revising, and preparing for exams taking place in May and June. Spare a thought - and your prayers - for them. It’s a stressful experience, even if you’re well prepared! And many teenagers are still playing ‘catch up’ from trying to study during lockdown over the last two years.

In early May, Youthscape is running a free online advice session for young people with anxiety about their exams. It’s part of the mental health service we provide through beheadstrong.uk. That’s the website and social media platform that brings mental health advice to young people from a Christian perspective. All the details can

be found there if you know a young person who might appreciate it: https://www.beheadstrong.uk

Leading the session will be two of our mental health experts; Jenny Cavendish and Jenny Flannagan, who also manage Alumina - our free online support groups for young people who are self-harming (selfharm.co.uk/alumina).

It’s all part of our strong belief that Christian faith should tackle the very real issues facing young people today. So thank you for your prayers; for our work and for the teenagers about to sit their exams in the next few months.

Happy Easter; may the peace and presence of God be very real.
