Hi,

November is here! And for the Youthscape team - it means our attention is on a venue in the heart of Birmingham - at least for one weekend.

That's because, on 12th - 14th November, nearly one thousand Christian youth workers will be coming from all around the UK for a weekend of training, inspiration and worship.

It's amazing to think that this little Luton project, which you support and pray for, has grown to be the organiser of the largest gathering of Christian youth workers in the UK. And that after nearly two years of COVID, we're actually holding this annual event in person again!

Which brings us back to that venue in Birmingham... Our team will be heading up to the conference centre, on the Thursday ahead of the weekend, and we'll be preparing for seminars, workshops and some amazing sessions together in the main auditorium.

Remember that many youth workers are struggling to get their youth work going again after lockdown, others are volunteers running groups in their spare time.

A weekend away can be a life-saver. A time to get refreshed and inspired. That's our aim. So this month, let's pray for those thousands of youth workers who are doing amazing work in churches up and down the country. And let's pray that the team at Youthscape can give them a blessed time at the 2021 National Youth Ministry Weekend.

Chris
