It’s the Autumn term! Schools are back, and youth groups are restarting after the summer break. It's always the busiest term 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, to take assemblies and more.

Meanwhile, our team are also preparing for the National Youth Ministry Weekend, which is a mere 11 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 running Youthscape Essentials; training for church youth leaders from around the UK. And Lucie is facilitating Theological Reflection groups, for youth workers, as part of the Translating God Research Project.

As well as all that, Luton Unite are starting a new discipleship group for local young people this month.

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