Happy New Year! It's 2022 and, as we venture into another year, I want to thank you for your continued support and prayers for our work with young people.

More than ever, it's hard to predict exactly what we'll be doing in these next weeks and months, and how the ongoing challenges of the pandemic will continue to reverberate through our ministry. But your prayers make a real difference, to us and our work, and we're so grateful for them.

We value your prayers; for those moments when one of us is meeting a young person in school and is about to begin a new mentoring session, for our team - when we're leading a training day for youth workers, and for when we are working on a new youth work resource.

We want young people in the church to grow up strong in their faith, despite the secular world they so often find themselves in. But more than that, we want the church to support young people in their community, to reach out beyond the walls of the church to the teenagers who need love and support.

Everything we do this year will be towards that purpose. And behind it - all our prayers, yours and ours, invite God to be at work bringing life, wholeness and healing into Christian youth ministry. Let's commit ourselves to pray to that end over the next few weeks.
