24th Feb - 3rd March

Coming up this week... 

I hope everyone has had lovely first week after half term. Here is what you need to know this week...

Cell Groups 
All cell groups will be doing sessions based around family this week. These sessions are part of a 4 week course of plans put together by the youth wing of the Salvation Army called a:love (click the name to find out more about them). 




Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Tonight (24th Feb) we are having a 'Cardboard Fortress Night'. Basically we will have tons of cardboard and we will build our own fort!! Bring as much card board as you can, because no-one ever came to a card board fortress night and said "ohhhh, there is way too much cardboard here...". You also might want to bring things like plastic bottle that can be used for decorations and as weapons!! 


Here is some of what we have been collecting in the office

Next week (3rd March) is 'Wide Games' down at the field, so come dress in warm clothes that you don't mind getting muddy!! 

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (24th Feb), since there will be so much cardboard in the hall, we are going to have a 'nerf war' using the cardboard to build our own defences. That is, if we have a enough nerf guns and bullets for it to be fun. If not, I have a couple of other ideas up my sleeve... 

Quick quiz, can you name all the people in this photo? I have literally thousands of these little beauties so let me know if you want to see more of them in the blogs... 

Next week (3rd March) will be the much disputed girlie night... but we can talk about that this week.  


Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week and its being led by Olly and Graham. We will be looking at Mark 13: 1-13 and thinking about persecution. 

CYFA 
CYFA actually isn't on this week. Sorry for the blog being wrong last week!! The next CYFA back is the 5th March, its being lead by Steve and Claire and is about cults. 

Youth Weekend Away 
Youth Weekend Away is coming happening in 2 weeks today!!! If you have any questions about it, please come and talk to me or get in touch using the stuff below. 

On another note, one or two people still haven't paid the full amount. If you know that's you, please bring the money along next week. If not, I know someone with a very particular set of skills... and they will find you.

If you want to know what is happening week-to-week in the youth work, you are already in the right place (well done you). But, if you need to contact us about anything else, feel free to get in touch using these:

17th - 24th Feb

Coming up this week... 

Well, that went quickly! The good news though is that the youth work is starting back up next week. Here is what is happening.. 

Cell Groups
Every cell group will start back next week and they will all be starting a 4 week run of sessions about families (except Year 9). Year 9 Cell will be looking at Spiritual Disciplines.   


Friday Pathfinders (younger)

This week (17th Feb) there is no Pathfinders, because its half term. 

Next week  (24th Feb) we are having a 'Card Board Fortress Night'. The aim of the game will be to build the best cardboard fortress, and then defend and attack with cardboard weaponry. I suggest you bring:

  • Cardboard (as much as you have) 
  • Gaffa tape (sooo much gaffa tape) 
  • bits of rubbish that would make good throwing weapons (I'm talking plastic, paper and card, not tins or rusty old daggers)




Friday Pathfinders (older)
No older pathfinders today (17th) but next week (24th)  We are going to use the cardboard that is left over to have a nerf war. So bring nerf guns please... as I said last week, the more the nerfier...


Sunday Pathfinders & CYFA 
There is no Sunday Pathfinders or CYFA this week.


Youth Weekend Away 
The deadline for the final payment for the weekend away has now passed, so if you need to settle up, please could you do that by Monday 20th Feb.

10th - 17th February

Coming up this week... 

HALF TERM... Here is some things you need to know before that happens though... 

Cell Celebration 
Thank you to everyone who came to this terms Cell Celebration. Well done to everyone who prepared and lead sections of it. I personally was very encouraged by the service and I know other people were too. 

We are really keen to hear what people thought about the Cell Celebration, so if you get chance, then we would love it if you could fill out this old chestnut... 

Cell Celebration feedback


Friday Pathfinders (younger)

This week (10th Feb) its Thirsty Meeples night, so bring extra money for food and any board games you've got that you think are good! 



Next week its half term, but week after (24th Feb) its 'Card Board Fortress Night' (that really is what it sounds like, we will be building giant cardboard fortresses). Any cardboard donations gratefully received! 

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (10th Feb) we are also having a 'Thirsty Meeples' night which will be less physical
than frisbees night I imagine (depending on how you play board games). 



Next week (17th Feb) is still half term, but after that (24th Feb) we are having a nerf gun battle. So bring nerf guns please... the more the nerfier 


Sunday Pathfinders & CYFA 
There is no Sunday Pathfinders or CYFA this week but Olly is leading the service in church and the Youth Band are playing so if you want to come see us, that would be lovely. 


Youth Weekend Away 
The deadline for the final payment for the weekend away has now passed, so if you need to settle up, please could you do that by Monday 20th Feb.

If you are in a cell please can you come for about 5, with everything you need to set up and prepare for what you are doing. Below is a quick reminder of which cells are doing what:

Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Thank you to everyone who took part in our murder mystery! I don't know about everyone else, but I had a great night... This week we will be announcing the winners of the different competitions that were happening through the night. 



The theme tonight (3rd Feb) is 'Challenge Night'... if you can handle it! 

Next week (10th Feb) its Thirsty Meeples night, so come with your (board) game face on.

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (3rd Feb) we are having a Frisbee Night (sorry PC Paddy, we'll have another one, when you aren't working, I promise). It won't just be Killer Frisbee, but your frisbee game will need to be strong. 

I bought one of these specially for tonight. It was supposed to arrive on Wednesday . Hopefully it will come today. 

Next week (10th Feb) be Thirsty Meeples night, just like younger (shame not to when we have all those games around). It will be good to have as many games as we can, so please can everyone bring a few games to add to the mix? 


Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week and its being led by Lisa and Gemma. The theme this week (and for quite a bit actually) is who Jesus is. 

CYFA 
CYFA is ON this week. Its being led by the "dream team" that is Olly and Steve and we will be looking at 'fasting'.
