12th - 18th December

Coming up this week... 

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good week... this is the last proper blog of the year (there will be another next week, but it will mostly be pictures of the cell social). Here is what is coming up in the next week...

Cell Groups 
Next week there are no cell groups :(. But that is because we are having our joint Christmas Social!! Its an evening full of dressing up in fancy clothes, eating pizza and and playing games. What's not to love?! (unless you don't like fun, in which case you will hate it) 

If you haven't handed in you need to as soon as you can. If we don't know you are coming, you will be allowed in, but you won't be allowed any of the delicious, delicious Domino's. 


If you haven't had an invite, print this picture off and give it to me with a £5er


Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today (9th) is the last Pathfinders before Christmas, so make sure you are wearing a Christmas jumper and come ready to play some Christmas classic games and eat your weight in mince pies. 


Last week we watched this cracking film. Sorry it was so cold though. The heating is fixed now though so it should be nice and toastie this week



Friday Pathfinders (older)
Today (9th) is the last Pathfinders before Christmas, so we are going to watch a Christmas movie, relax, eat some mince pies and unwind with a relaxing game of killer frisbee. 





Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week (11th) but its the last one . We will be going through and sharing what we have liked/learned about this term, playing games and then praying for each other. 

CYFA 
There is no CYFA this Sunday (11th) but next week (18th) we will be having a social. 


YOUTH. WEEKEND. AWAY.
The forms for the weekend away should have been given out at cell groups and Pathfinders last week. If you still haven't had a letter you can download them from here

28th Nov - 4th Dec


Coming up this week... 

The big news this week is that our youth weekend away date has now been sorted! Add that to all the Christmas excitement and I can barely even contain myself! Here is what is coming up in the next week...

YOUTH. WEEKEND. AWAY.
It is happening again and its going to be bigger than ever... (or at the very least, the same size)

We have managed to sort the venue and date out after a bit of a delay. 

The weekend is going to be 10th-12th March. Put it in your diaries and tattoo it on your favourite arm. 

If you have never been to the weekend away and want to know about it, speak to someone who has been and they will tell you how amazing it is. 

Cell Groups 
All cells are back this week, normal times and normal spaces. 

Year 7 Cell are looking at identity and confidence. 
Year 8 Cell are having a second session on Equality 
Year 9 Cell are having a session on Equality. 
Year 10 Cell are having a second session on porn
Year 11 Cell are having a session on Equality 
Year 12 Cell are looking at Mental health 
Year 13 Cell are doing a second session on Equality (I think) 

Sounds very complicated, but I assure you it isn't. It's as simple as fitting as many marshmallows as you can into mouth and then saying chubby bunnies (see below) 






Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today (25th) is 'Dark Games', be afraid, be very afraid. Unless you really like playing silly games in the dark, in which case... enjoy the games... very enjoy the games...





Next week (2nd December) we having a movie night, so make sure you vote tonight for your favourite movie to watch.   




Friday Pathfinders (older)
Today (25th) we are also playing dark games!! Be afraid etc. But as always there will be a bit of killer frisbee thrown in for good measure.



Next week (2nd) we are having our annual murder mystery. Hopefully it will be as good as last year... or will it... dun dun dun duuuuuuuunnnnn.......




Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on Psalm 51 this week and is going be lead by Olly and our new help Graham Griffiths. 


CYFA 
There is no CFYA this week, and in even sadder news, we have finished our run of sessions on the bible. What we do next is up to you (sort of).

21st - 27th November (ish)

Coming up this week... 

As the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, the youth work carries on regardless. Here is what is coming up in the next week...

Cell Groups 
Because of Cell Leaders training, only cells that meet on a Monday are happening this week. 

So that means: 

Year 7 Cell are meeting normal time, normal place, and are having a session on Equality. 
Year 8 Cell are meeting (at Caroline's house this week, not Emily's if you don't know where Caroline lives, Emily will be waiting at hers, but make sure you are on time!) and having a session on Equality 
Year 9 Cell are meeting, same time, same place and are having a follow up session about Porn. 

No other cell groups are on this week, but they will be back next week! 





Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today is Takeshi's castle night at younger Pathfinders and it is going to be amazing! I spent most of Thursday making whacking sticks for the occasion (be afraid, be very afraid). 




Next week (25th) we will be playing an old Friday Pathfinders classic 'Dark Games'!  







Friday Pathfinders (older)
Today at Older Pathfinders we are playing Takeshi's Castle meets Ninja Warrior!! (I have planned it now, and I still have no idea what it is, all I can say is I'm really looking forward to it).




Next week (25th) we are playing 'Dark Wide Games' (this is the last time I let you guys come up with the plans for what we are doing every week ;). 




Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on Psalm 38 this week and is going be lead by Olly and Angela.

31st Oct - 6th Nov

Coming up this week... 

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful half term, even if its just enjoying the simple things like sleeping in till 12 and sitting on the sofa all day, or there being less traffic on the a40 on your way to work (depending on what half term means for you!). I am sad to say that the coming of this blog heralds the end of that blissful period. Here is a list of what is coming up to cheer you up when half term is over...

Cell Groups 
Because it is INSET day on Monday year 7, 8 + 9 cell groups will NOT be meeting this week. But we will make it up to you by having Monday cells on the 28th November (when all the other cells won't be meeting). 

All other cells will be meeting as normal this week. Normal time, normal places. 



Parents evening for cell groups
Don't worry, its not like a normal parents evening and there will be no report cards. Its basically a chance for parents to come and look at what we will be doing as cells over the next few weeks. 

If you are interested (and you are a parent of a cell member) the evening will be taking place this Thursday (3rd Nov) from 8.00 - 9.30pm in St. Leonard's Church building in the square. 


Friday Pathfinders (younger and older)

I hope everyone enjoyed the FreeDog trip as much as I did! (and hopefully got less injured than I did too)

Next time I am bringing Boris! 

There is NO older or young Pathfinders on Friday 4th November. But we will be back on the 11th with 'Boys vs. Girls' night for Younger and 'Kids Party Games' for Older.

Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is back on this Sunday (28th Oct). It will be based on Psalm 6 and Jennifer and Angela will be leading. 

The Sunday (6th Nov) after will be based on Psalm 32 and will be led by Lisa and Simon.
