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. 


CYFA 
CYFA on like a billabong. We are carrying on our Bible series with Nick and Steve will be his 'lovely' assistant.

14th - 20th November

Coming up this week... 

I can't believe we are so far through November already! The main responses I had from people were that Friday was better for the blogs, so Fridays it shall be. Here is what is coming up in the next week...

Cell Groups 
Next week Year 7, 8, 9, 10 + 11 cell will be doing a session on Porn and Year 12 and 13 cell will be doing a session on Equality.

Both will be pretty good discussions so come prepared!

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





Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today the first Younger Pathfinders session back after our free dog trip. We will be having a 'Girls vs. Boys' night, with loads of different challenges.



Next week (18th) we will be bringing back a brilliant session for a few years ago based around Takeshi's castle.  




Friday Pathfinders (older)
Today at Older Pathfinders we will be playing some classic kids party games, complete with kids party refreshments!! 

Next week (18th) we will be playing Takeshi's meets Ninja Warrior (no idea what that is yet, but I'll let you know when we have planned it!!) 


Sunday Pathfinders

7th - 13th November (ish)

Coming up this week... 

We are thinking about changing our blog day to Friday (so that people in Monday Cells have a bit more warning of what is happening). Let me know what you think. Is it better like this or more confusing? Have a gander and see what you think...

Cell Groups 
Next week Year 7, 8, 9, 10 + 11 cell will be doing a session on Social Media and Year 12 and 13 cell will be doing a session on Porn (nearly typed looking at porn there, which for the record, we won't be doing in the session!).

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




Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Just a reminder that there is NO younger Pathfinders today (4th)! 

Next week (11th) we will be having an old fashioned 'Girls vs Boys' night. 

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Just a reminder that there is NO older Pathfinders today (4th) either! 

Next week (11th) we will be having 'Kids Party Games' night breaking out such classics as musical chairs and sleeping lions.  

Let this be a warning to the rest of you if you selfie, I will blog ;)

Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week. This Sunday (6th Nov) will be based on Psalm 32 and will be led by Lisa and Simon.  


CYFA 
CYFA is back this week too and we are carrying on with our Bible series, lead by Nick (sorry about that).
