As summer approaches, our minds are turning to the summer holidays, and the long-standing Youthscape tradition of taking young people away for a week.

This year, we will be organising a big week away for lots of local young people - to attend a huge Christian camping week in August, attended by thousands of young people from all over the UK. But this time there’s a difference... We are the ones organising the whole event!

Satellites is a brand new, week-long, camping experience at the East of England showground. Drawing together church youth groups from right across the UK. Hundreds of groups and thousands of young people.

It’s been a long-standing plan for us to launch this event, (something delayed multiple times by COVID), and now it’s finally about to happen.

Some of our team will be with young people from Luton, sharing the experience with them, and camping alongside other groups.

The rest of the Youthscape team will be organising the event - running an exciting programme that will help young people to engage with Christian faith, try out all kinds of creative activities, and have fun together.So these next few weeks are important. More youth groups are signing up every day, and we’re busy planning to make the event as fantastic as it can be.

You cannot imagine the scale of organisation required to host thousands of teenagers safely for a week! But we’re doing it because we believe it’s a vital part of helping young people deepen their faith. And young people from Luton will be there right at the heart of it.

So, please pray with us for these weeks of preparation and for the event itself. If you’re curious to know more, take a look: https://www.youthscape.co.uk/s...
