Hello! March sees the launch of Youthscape’s latest research project - helping the church engage better with young people. It’s called ‘Feel-Good News?’.

It’s part of a ground-breaking two year programme to get to grips with how culture is changing, and how the church must respond. The project launches on March 18th, and you can, (and should!), read it for yourself - at translating-god.com.

If you’re reading this, you care about young people, and this will really help you learn what is going on in their lives. Specifically, what they think about Christian faith and beliefs.

In the meantime, please can you pray that this research will be read widely across the UK church, and that it will help us love and serve young people better. Both those in the church, and those in our communities.

Youthscape is renowned for our research team and their work is held in huge regard. We hope and pray this new piece of work will be used by God to great effect.
