SAVE THE DATE – We would love you to come and join us for our Open Day and Supporter’s Cream Tea on Saturday 1st July 2-4pm.

A very happy and blessed Easter to you if you are reading this in Holy Week, ahead of the Easter weekend and celebrations.

Our team will be taking a short break over the Easter weekend, and getting some rest ahead of the summer term.

And we're going to need to be full of energy because there's a lot planned! In Luton we'll be in schools across the town delivering support for students who are struggling with their behaviour or mental health.

The drop in at Bute Mills will be busy and we're starting a new, after-school football project too.

Our resources team are launching a brand new anti-racism resource to help youth groups tackle this important issue and link it clearly to Christian faith.

And to top it all, we'll be working hard to organise Satellites, our summer event for church youth groups.

This will be the second year of the festival, which takes place early in the summer holidays. More than 3,000 teenagers are expected for an amazing week of worship, teaching and fun. And in all of this, we pray that young people find hope and value, that churches are renewed in their welcome and care for young people, and that Youthscape's work makes a lasting difference in the lives of thousands of teenagers.

Thank you for sharing in those prayers.
