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.

Coming up this week... 

Half term is nearly here so brace yourself for the last 'normal' week of youth work of this half term. Here is a list of what is coming up and some other useful things you need to know...

Cell Groups 
NEXT SUNDAY (16th October at 6pm in the church hall) is our termly Cell Celebration so all the Cell Groups will be preparing for their part in that. Your cell leaders will tell you which part your cell will be doing this time. They are always amazing so make sure you make it along if you can.   




Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Well done to everyone who took part in 'Incredible Games!' you rose to the challenge like champions.  

David applauds your achievement

This week we are having a 'Thirsty Meeples' night. If you have heard of Thirsty Meeples, it is a fantastic board games cafe. We will have loads of different board games and you will be able to buy some great snacks from the hatch (so make sure you bring some extra money). 

This week is also the last chance to get your consent form and money in for our FreeDog trip.  


Don't forget your Consent form!

Friday Pathfinders (Older)
This week at Older Friday Pathfinders we have brave/stupidly decided to have a 'BBQ night'. The plan will be to try new and exciting ways of cooking ordinary things, as well as having lots of standard BBQ goodness. 

Please could everyone bring a contribution to be BBQ'd like a pack of sausages or some burgers (or something more adventurous) and we will provide the rest. 
I always love finding these little gems on my phone on a Monday morning






Make sure you wear something warm! 

Sunday Pathfinders
This week Sunday Pathfinders will be lead by Simon and Aidan and will be looking at 2 Timothy: 4  

CYFA

3rd -9th October

Coming up this week... 

I can't believe it's October already! I hope everyone is looking forward to some good old fashioned chilly British weather. Here is a list of what is coming up and some other useful things you need to know...

Cell Groups 
This week at cells Year 7 + 8 + 11 will be looking at 'What is Church?', Year 10 Cell will be looking at 'Why did Jesus Die?', Year 9 will be looking at 'Prayer' again and Year 12 + 13 will be looking at 'Identity and Confidence'.  




Date for the diary: our termly Cell Celebration is coming up on Sunday 16th October and will be held in the church hall, so next week all the cell groups will be planning their contribution to it as part of their cell. 



Friday Pathfinders (younger)
I don't know about everyone else, but I loved playing 'Pokemon Go' last week and all the teams did an amazing job of hunting down our real life Pokemon. 



This week we are going all retro and taking part in one other greatest gameshows to ever hit 90's television! It was called 'Incredible Games' and it was amazing, and we are doing our very own version of it as a tribute. Complete with giant vegetable soup and the terrifying Dark Knight! 

If you want a little taster, take a look a this gem of a theme tune


Don't forget your Consent form!

Friday Pathfinders (Older)
After getting everything sorted last week, we now have a plan! A proper one and everything, and we will even have term cards!! Try to contain your excitement, and if you can't, try not to take it out on anyone else. I suggest taking a trip to your nearest field and doing a little whoop and a dance. 

This week we will be playing some classic games. Feel free to post any suggestions on the FB group.

Friday Pathfinders FreeDog Trip (Older and Younger)
If you were at Pathfinders last week you will have found out that we are taking a trip to FreeDog the week before half term. 

The forms that went out last out last week were actually a bit wrong, in that they forgot to say how much the trip was going to cost. Including transport it will actually cost £12 and we recommend that people bring at least £5 for something to eat while we are there. We never want to exclude anyone for cost reasons so if that will be a problem, please let us know. 

We may be limited for spaces and in that case tickets will be given on a first come first served basis so make sure you get your money and consent forms in as soon as possible. 




You can download the FreeDog trip consent form from here

Sunday Pathfinders
This week Sunday Pathfinders will be lead by Olly and Aidan and we will be looking at 2 Timothy: 3.  

CYFA 
There is no CYFA this week.  

Youth Band
This week the younger band is meeting a the same time as normal (7.00-8.30pm) but we are having it at the Hogan's house (thanks Hogan's, we love you) and looking at what it means to lead worship. 

The older youth band will be meeting at the Harrington's (thanks Harrington's, we love you as well) and having an awesome prayer session.
