We are SO excited to invite you to our Commissioning Service for the Yorkshire Coast Bus! 🎉 The wonderful Wydale Hall are hosting us on Sunday 25th November, for a time to look around the bus and pray for the team as they get on the road 🚌 Hot drinks and cakes provided 🍰 Come and celebrate with us!
We are SO excited to announce the launch of our newly revamped website! 🙌 A lot of work has gone into this over the past few months, and we love how it tells the story of the work we do and how you can get involved. Check it out at www.busstop.org.uk - we hope you like it as much as we do! 😊
The flooring is down and the seats are nearly in! 🙌🙌🙌 Massive shout-out to our amazing volunteers Chris and Peter. Chris has designed and built all of our downstairs furniture and both have spent hours of their summer getting our bus ready! We would be lost without our incredible volunteers ♥️
This weekend a total of 18 people helped us begin the transformation of our second bus - what absolute legends! We are so incredibly grateful for all of our volunteers, we literally couldn't do it without you 😍
Well what an excellent DIY day! Despite being inside an insanely hot bus, we managed to finish the sanding, primed nearly the whole of the inside and fitted a new TV! Tomorrow the paint will be going on - ping us a message if you want to come join! 🙌
The weather outside may be frightful...but The Bus Stop carries on! The kettles are on, the heaters are on full blast...come join us Norton peeps 🙌
When the bus breaks down on a country lane and it starts properly snowing, the generosity of a strangers warm house is very appreciated ❤️ also special shout out to our supporter Steve who sent us money to treat ourselves to a takeaway, tonight was the perfect night! 😂
Yesterday, Emily along with Ceryse, Ellie and Georgia (3 of our young people from Selby) had the honour of attending Scripture Union’s 150th anniversary alongside a very special guest! It was great to celebrate this charity that has played a huge part in supporting The Bus Stop and the young people we work with.
We had a great time in Selby this weekend, running a community cafe and receiving a cheque for nearly £2000 from the Co-op to support the work we do with our brilliant young people there! 🎉 #andfreecakestoo

During the summer holidays our bus routine looks a little different! We take a break from our weekly visits and go and serve different communities around the North for a week at a time!

Today was the start of our schools tour in Beverley 🙌 This month we'll be parking up in school playgrounds all around Beverley with our interactive prayer space, working together with Beverley Christian Schools Trust! If you're in the area, watch out for us and give us a wave! 👋🚌
Tonight in Norton our young people created their own political parties and policies 🙌 It went to a vote and to avoid a coalition, the top two went back to back in a live debate. Sadly the Llama-Shalla-Ding-Dong party didn't win, although compulsory llamas would be great 👌 #LlamasForAll #youngpeople #politics
Today we're at York Young Carers Awareness Day, exploring our hopes and dreams for the future! It's great to support this fantastic charity and all that they do.
