A happy new year to you! Welcome to the first of our monthly prayer emails from Youthscape for 2020. This is seems like a good moment for me to say thank you for caring about young people and praying with us for them.

Over the next month we'll be alongside young people in local schools, churches, out in the community and, of course, at Bute Mills. The kitchen will be packed full of young people each day after school where they help us make snacks and meals - all part of the way we create a warm welcome for young people here at Bute Mills. We'll also be busy training youth workers across the country and supporting them with resources and fresh ideas for the church to renew its work with young people. There's lots to do!

You're part of that mission by joining us in prayer, and I'm so glad to have you alongside us through this month. Let's pray!
