This month, our Satellites festival is running from the 4th - 8th August!

A year in the planning, we are expecting more than 2,000 young people to come together and camp at the Bath and West Showground.

The Youthscape team and more than 200 volunteers will be making it all happen. Lots of fun, of course, and space to explore Christian faith through discussions, workshops and the main sessions.

Your prayers would mean a great deal to us, as we seek to make a safe and welcoming space for young people - some of whom will be away from home for the first time!

I'm especially looking forward to the space I'll be running at Satellites - a little bolt-hole for youth leaders - to come and get some rest and refreshment.

Let's pray that it will be a significant time for those who are there. And pray also for the team - who'll likely be taking a well-earned holiday in the remaining weeks of August. Some quieter days will be most welcome!!

Thank you so much for all your support, we really appreciate it!

Chris, & the Youthscape Team
