Spring is well and truly here! Summer, and Satellites, are beckoning, and hopefully the colder days are behind us.
As we start this new term, (of course, as youth workers we think in school terms!), the whole staff team at Youthscape are heading off for three days of retreat. Where we’ll be praying for our work and for young people. It’s a habit we’ve made for the start of each term, and it’s where we draw our spiritual strength for the weeks ahead.

Spare a thought in your prayers, not just for us, but for the thousands of young people, across the UK, facing exams this term. April is their last chance for revision, let’s hope they manage to get themselves fully prepared.

Some young people seem to thrive in exams, but many find it incredibly pressured and stressful. Rates of self-harm will increase, (remember, we are caring for over a thousand young people a year via our online self-harm support programme - Alumina).

So, we hold all of them in our prayers over the coming weeks. And then, in a flash, the exams will be over, term will finish, and we’ll head off to the Satellites summer festival.

There is so much to pray for over the next couple of months! Thank you for caring for young people, and for supporting the work we are privileged to do with them.
