Youthscape Centre for Research

Phoebe ThompsonPhoebe Thompson (previously editor of Youthwork Magazine) has recently started a new role, developing a research unit at Youthscape.

The Youthscape Centre for Research is a brand new think tank situated at the heart of Youthscape.  Their hope is to carry out national pieces of research among youth workers and young people.  As part of this they’ve created an online registration form with just a few questions, inviting any youth workers out there who are interested to get involved with our work.

We need youth workers around the UK to participate in our research, to help us reflect on the findings, and to contribute to youth work strategy and innovation going forwards. We will be carrying out a few research projects each year, and would love you to be a part of them!

Simply answer the few short questions in the following survey, and they will be in touch soon.

Soulnet – Exploring Youth Ministry Day

SoulNet - exploring youth ministry

Soul Survivor are partnering up with Youthscape, Urban Saints and Romance Academy for a day designed to equip and release those who are feeling a call into youth ministry.  Exploring youth ministry day on Saturday 23rd January, 9.30am-7pm at Soul Survivor Watford Warehouse (WD247GP) – Free!


Could this be you? Your volunteer team? A young person in your youth group? Or a member of your congregation?

We need loads more people equipped and called into youth ministry as we seek to grow disciples and reimagine church, and this is a great way of starting that ball rolling. Find out more about this brilliiant event below!

Please book on so that they have an idea of numbers.

Here’s the info from the Soul Net team:

On Saturday 23rd January we’re holding a one-day conference for anyone who is passionate about young people and would like to explore what it means to reach and disciple the next generation. If you’re already a youth leader, we’d love for you to think about some young people you could invite who are interested in youth ministry. If you’re trying to work out if this is something you’re called to we’d love for you to join us too.

The day will be hosted by Mike Pilavachi and Andy Croft, alongside our friends Rachel Gardner from Romance Academy and Girls’ Brigade, Chris Curtis and Martin Saunders from Youthscape and Matt Summerfield from Urban Saints. We’ll also make plenty of space for worship and ministry to meet with God and ask him to work in us.

We’ll be looking at:

• Recapturing the heart of youth ministry

• How to help young people live out their faith among their friends

• What it means to faithfully love and serve others

• Identifying the barriers to disciple-making and how these can be overcome

• Principles and practical exercises to learn how to disciple young people

• Why everything flows from loving God and worshipping him

We hope to see you there. Have a browse below to see what else we’re up to…
