They have said everybody will get the chance to meet the new arrival in due course, but as we wait for this time, please give the family time to settle in.  
Cell Groups 


Most cell groups have now completed the two part session on drugs and alcohol but as everybody isn't up to the same point, this week people will be following a variety of topics.

9th - 16th June

Coming up next week... 
1 week on, and still no arrival of Baby Shaw, yet Olly still leaves the blog writing to his apprentice. Here's what's coming up this week
Cell Groups 
After a great week looking at drugs and alcohol, year 8,9 and 10 will being part two of the same session. Year 7, 12 and 13 will be looking at God of Surprises. Year 11 will be doing the second half of the session on drugs and alcohol or God of Surprises, depending on how their cell goes. 




Friday Pathfinders (younger)
This week (9th June) is obstacle course night! You may think you up to the challenge physically, but can you handle the pressure which comes with the church hall obstacle course?
Next week (16th June) is project night. So far the projects are bell ringing, knitting, woodwork and lock picking. It sounds like a fantastic evening.
 



Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (9th June) is film night. If you don't bring some film choices we will most likely be watching the 2010 conference play off final as that is my all time favourite DVD.
Next week (16th June) it is where's wally night. Find your best Wally costume and prepare to hide.





Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week and it is all about being a Christian at work. We will be sharing breakfast together at the Ferrier's whilst you find out about the lives of the leaders and their faith at work. 


CYFA 
CYFA is not on this week. But the youth band are playing their last service so be there to give them the send off you think they deserve.

2nd - 9th June


Coming up next week... 
You might notice something different about the blog this week, it may be less funny but there will be fewer spelling and grammatical errors as it has been written by somebody who knows how to write. That's right people........Dobbo has arrived! (Don't all cheer at once)
Cell Groups 
Cell groups are returning this week after a refreshing half term. Years 7, 8, 9, 10,11 and 13 will be doing a session on drugs and alcohol. Year 12 will be doing a brief recap on their alcohol session and then focussing on drugs.  



Friday Pathfinders (younger)
This week (2nd June) there is no pathfinders due to half term. BOOOOOOOOOO!
Next week (9th June) it is obstacle course night. Be prepared to jump, spin and run round our unique obstacle course. You will not find one quite like it anywhere in the world! 


Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (2nd June), there will also be no pathfinders due to half term. Next week will be movie night. Film TBC, ideas are welcome so bring something you like and we can choose. Snacks will be provided.




Sunday Pathfinders
It is all age worship so Sunday Pathfinders will not be on this week. 


CYFA 
CYFA is on this week and you will be looking at suffering. It will be run by Olly and Steve unless baby Shaw arrives in which case I will be there! 




About me...
Some of you will already know who I am. My name is Steven Dobson (Dobbo) and I am a student at Newcastle University studying a pretty prestigious course. I like to dress to impress at all times so don't be surprised to see me looking good. I shall be covering all of Olly's cell groups and will be in the office most of his paternity leave so you will all be seeing me at some point.

Finally....
Happy birthday to Sam Gundry who is 14 today! You are so grown up.
