27th Oct - 3rd Nov

Coming up next week... 
I hope everyone has had a great half term. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, so I won't mention that by Monday it will all be over :(. But I will tell you that we have got some exciting things coming up this week... 

Cell Groups 
Cell groups are all back next week, so make sure your evenings are free! 

Year 7-11 Cell Groups will be starting a course of 'Youth Alpha' tackling the tiny little topic of the meaning of life.

Year 12-13 Cell Groups will be looking at Denominations in the church and thinking about how that could possibly happen in a church that is suppose to be 'united'. 





Reminder: Year 10 Cell will be meeting on Wednesday this week at 8.15pm - 9.30pm.

Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Tonight (27th October) there isn't any Younger Pathfinders because it is still half term! But we are back next week! 




Next week (3rd November) its yet another Friday Pathfinders First... There have been rumours that in a distant land near to the US of A there is a country who's folk are even more unnecessarily polite than us Brits and there is another rumour that this whole time we have had one of them amongst us! So, um, sorry, um if you don't mind, would please mind letting us introduce our first ever CANADA NIGHT (if that's OK). Come ready to gargle with Maple Syrup and find our what its all aboot ya. 


Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (27th Oct) there is no Older Friday Pathfinders either, but... 


These were the pizza's from Bake Off Night. Can you guess which one won? 


Next week (3rd November) its R-R-R-R-R-RRRRRAGE IN THE CAGE night! Don't worry, its not as scary as it sounds. Come dressed in sport clothes.

Sunday Pathfinders/CYFA 
There is no Sunday Pathfinders or CYFA this week, but it is an All Age Worship at church. 


Youth Weekend Away

20th - 27th October

Coming up next week... 
We have made it! Tomorrow is officially half-term! Well done everyone.  We've still got some things happening though, so it's worth reading this blog... just in case. 
Cell Groups 
Well done to everyone who took part in our Cell Celebration on Sunday. It was a brilliant service and everyone did really well. The sad new is that because of half term, there won't be any cell next week. You'll just have to wait until the week after for you cell group fix! 





Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Tonight (20th October) its Cafe Night. Mo and Dave will be there with their international Cafe and Olly will challenge anyone who feels brave enough to face him at Teken Tag. 




Next week (27th October) its half term :), so there won't be any Pathfinders :(. But don't worry, we will be back the week after that for more fun and games. 


Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (20th Oct) its Bake off night. We got all the same rounds and the same music, we are just lacking the tent, presenters and judges. Other than that, it will be the same as the TV show. To be fair Olly now does have a beard like Paul Hollywood (just not the baking ability). 






Next week (27th Oct) there won't be any Pathfinders because its half term! 

Sunday Pathfinders/CYFA 
There is no Sunday Pathfinders or CYFA this week, but it is an All Age Worship at church. 


Youth Weekend Away 
Hopefully the Weekend Away has been in your diary's for a while, but, wait for it....... the forms are now ready!!! They will be being handed out at groups but can also be downloaded form here:

13th - 20th October

Coming up next week... 
You may have to excuse a few (more) typos and spelling mistakes than normal. Hope, may have decided that 4.30am was wake up time and is now chattering merrily away next to me. This is our last proper week before half term, but its a goodie. We've got cell celebration, cell leaders training, and a winter BBQ. To find out more have a little read below... 
Cell Groups 
THIS SUNDAY (15th OCTOBER) 6pm is our Cell Celebration! If you have never been to a cell celebration before, now is your chance. Ask anyone who has been if you want to know more about what they are like. You'll be glad you did. 

If you are in a cell, please can you make sure you are there for 5.30pm to set everything up. 




Next week (after the cell celebration) there won't be any cell groups meeting, because our lovely leaders will be attending a training session. We will be back after half term though, raring and ready to go.   


Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Tonight (13th October) its Dark Games. If you don't like having fun, or the dark then you might not like it. But if you are happy with both of those things, then get ready for a great night! 





Next week (20th October) will be Cafe Night. Remember to bring extra money for the delicious delicious food and be ready to relax and maybe give someone and unwanted makeover. 

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (13th Oct) its our winter BBQ extravaganza!! Why don't more people have BBQ's in the winter? Who know's but its time that BBQ's were broken free of their summery shackles and we at Older Friday Pathfinders are leading that revolution. Remember to bring extra money. All that delicious BBQ goodness doesn't come cheap (well, its still pretty cheap but more that £1). And dress up warm! 




Next week (20th Oct) is Bake Off Night. The TV show may have moved to channel 4 but our location remains the same... 

Sunday Pathfinders 
Sunday Pathfinders is on courage this week and is being led by Simon and Graham. Remember to bring your Pathfinders bibles.

CYFA 
CYFA is at the earlier time of 9am this week. We are meeting straight at the Page's house for a nice bit of breakfast and a session on prayer. I know, I know, it's early. But it will be worth it! 

Events

We have lots of events coming up in the next year and we thought it would be useful to have a place where people can go and look at when they are. So:

1. Just at the side of every blog there is a little list of events that are coming up in the near future 

2. We now have our very own Facebook page. Click here to take a look at it. It has a list of all our events (you can even tell us you are planning on coming). You can contact us, ask us questions and soon, you will be able to download consent forms from there too! 

Soul Survivor
Next week I won't be putting this link on the blog, so download the consent forms now while you still can!

6-13th October

Coming up next week... 
Anyone ready for another blog post? Good, cuz here it is. This week holds yet another Friday Pathfinders first, but at older this week (I think). We've got Soul Survivor consent forms and 4 of our crew are getting confirmed and that's just on top of all the usual excitement. To find out more, have a little read below... 

Cell Groups 
On the 15th October we are having our first Cell Celebration of this (academic) year! All last week cell groups have been busily preparing all their different contributions to it. Next week we will be putting the finishing touches on the what we planned last week. Everyone has been assigned things to do and bring before next weeks cells, so make sure you remember to do/bring them! 

Here is a reminder of who is doing what: 

Year 7 Cell: Prayer stations
Year 8 Cell: Prayer stations 
Year 9 Cell: Welcome and refreshments 
Year 10 Cell: Prayer stations 
Year 11 Cell: Welcome game 
Year 12 Cell: Video or some other creative way to introduce the topic 

Year 13 Cell: Talk 



Timing reminder: 
Year 10 Cell. It is Week B next week, so Year 10 Cell will be meeting on Thursday (12th Oct) next week at 7.15pm. Finishing at 8.30pm. 


Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Tonight (6th October) its a Make a Film night. Come dressed as your favourite film character (there will be a prize for the best dressed) and be ready to recreate some icon movie moments from the comfort of your own Friday Pathfinders. 



Next week (13th October) will be Dark Games. If you are scared of the dark, this might not be the night for you. Otherwise, be prepared to play some brilliant games... in the dark. 

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (6th Oct) its the much anticipated Friday Pathfinders Disney night (which I think is another Pathfinders first). Get ready to sing your heart out and don't forget to come in fancy dress (Disney themed, obviously). 




Next week (13th Oct) is the winter BBQ extravaganza. Dress up warm, because we will be out in the garden and remember to bring a bit of extra money to pay for the delicious BBQ treats. 

Sunday Pathfinders / CYFA   
Very excitingly our very own Scarlett, Jed, Peter and Lorna are all getting confirmed this Sunday (8th October)!! We definitely couldn't miss out being in church for that, so there is no CYFA or Sunday Pathfinders this week. 


Soul Survivor
It seems like last week I broke the link to our Soul Survivor contest form link. It is now back working again. So, download your forms and get the in as early as you can.
