SAVE THE DATE! We would love you to come and join us for our Open Day and Supporter’s Cream Tea on Saturday 1st July, 2-4pm. (More information about this event to follow shortly.)

Summer is fast approaching, and for us at Youthscape that means one thing: Satellites! More than 3,000 Christian young people will be gathering at the Bath and Wells showground for five days from 4th to 8th August. All we have to do this month is get ready for it!

Youthscape launched Satellites last year as a national event for churches, to bring their youth groups together for fun, teaching and encouragement.

That first year was a roaring success and now we’re busy planning for the second one - this time in the sunny south-west.

As you can imagine, this means planning everything from huge evening celebration services, to sports and late night fun... Not to mention, toilets, camping facilities and everything else you need to look after so many people.

Martin, Tabi, Rosie and Robbie, all members of the Youthscape staff team, are working flat out to get things ready. Your prayers and support for them this month will mean a lot.

We’re committed to creating events that will help churches support young people to find a deep and lasting faith. This summer we’re going to have the whole team and nearly 300 other volunteers working to make that happen!

Thank you, as always, for all your prayers.
