Pray with us through October for the ministry of Youthscape with young people.

This month we are especially conscious of the increasing impact of the Coronavirus, and the difference it’s making to the lives of young people.

Pray for those who’ve left home for the first time, to start college or university, but find themselves locked down and unable to make the connections and friendships that are so crucial. Pray for young people who are aware that their families are struggling financially because of redundancies.

Teenagers deal with pressure and stress differently - some bury it and try to forget about it. At the other extreme, we are working with young people who are harming themselves as a way of coping with overwhelming emotions. Not every young person has the support structures and home life they need to deal with what’s happening.

As a Christian organisation we want to be at the heart of serving young people and equipping churches to do the same.

Last week we published a free, new resource, ‘Together Apart’, for church youth groups. It gives them everything they need to connect with young people online and is being downloaded by hundreds of churches across the country, as they seek to connect with the teenagers in their communities.

The response to ‘Headstrong’ has been simply amazing too. (Headstrong is a new online service to support young people’s mental health that Youthscape launched on 1st September.) Many thousands of young people are visiting the site daily to get help and advice from Christian doctors, youth workers, psychologists and other professionals. It puts the church at the heart of the challenges young people are facing - right where we should be.

So there is much to pray for - and we thank you for being partners with us, caring about young people and meeting their needs.
