It's the Autumn term! Schools are back, youth groups are restarting after the summer break and, (hopefully), the restrictions of lockdown are finally easing.

The Autumn term is always the busiest for the team here at Youthscape, and your prayers and support are needed more than ever.

In Luton, we're opening our Drop-in at Bute Mills for hundreds of young people to come and connect with us after school. And, speaking of schools, we'll be heading back into those as well - to support students who need some pastoral care, take assemblies and more.

Meanwhile, our team are also preparing for the National Youth Ministry Weekend which is a mere 10 weeks away! It's the weekend we invite church youth leaders from across the UK to join us in BirmIngham for encouragement, training and inspiration. More than 1,000 come each year.

Of course, that's not all by any means. We're also launching training for church youth leaders from around the UK - it's called Youthscape Essentials. And, we're publishing a free resource for youth workers - to help young people dealing with poor mental health, and... well you get the idea.

We're busy serving churches and young people in whatever way can at this time. There is so much to pray for!
