"Remember, remember the ... of November!" Except we're not thinking of bonfires and fireworks. For Youthscape - this month the focus is the 18th of November. That Friday evening we open our fifth national conference for church youth workers - a weekend of inspiration and encouragement that we call The National Youth Ministry Weekend.

Every member of the Youthscape team, with some volunteers to boot, will be on hand to welcome one thousand Christians from across the UK to the venue in central Birmingham. For many, it will be the highlight of the year - a chance to learn new skills, pray, worship and simply be in the company of others who care about young people and their place in the church. Some will come from thriving youth groups, bursting at the seams, but many others will come from churches where there is struggle to keep even the few young people they have. For them, the warmth and welcome of the weekend will be a lifesaver.

So back to you - and your wonderful willingness to pray for Youthscape and our ministry. This month, and on that weekend in particular, would you spare a moment to pray for our event to not only be a blessing to the youth workers who are there, but the many thousands of young people who they love and serve - and who will just as much be beneficiaries of a great weekend.
