This month, join with us in praying for young people, and for the work of Youthscape.

During the 30 days of June, we will be visiting schools across Luton, welcoming more than 250 young people to Bute Mills, and helping 10 local churches grow their youth work. We are holding a special evening for local youth workers - to meet and learn together. As well as hosting two evenings of Luton Unite - the fast-growing gathering of local young people who want to learn more about their faith.

At the same time, (every weekday evening), our Headstrong team will be leading Alumina - running online sessions, working with young people who are self-harming. More than sixty 10 - 18 year olds will take part each week, and get the help they need to learn to manage their self-harm.

Our team will also be visiting churches all over the UK: including Birmingham, Blackburn and Bristol. As well as launching a new resource for youth groups, called ‘Unfold’, designed to help small youth groups get into reading the Bible together. And, of course, we’ll be working hard to prepare for the Satellites festival at the beginning of August.

I think that’s enough to keep us busy! However, it’s nothing without the work of the Spirit. So, let’s pray that God is present in all we are doing; His love touching the lives of young people, in Luton and around the UK.
