Friday Pathfinders is back! This week (20th September) come prepared for a "chilly evening" as we play ice breaker games.

Older Pathfinders

Older Pathfinders are also back this week (20th September) and you are in for a classic night of games. Round the table, table tennis and so much more will be on offer. The following week (27th September) we are having a birthday party for Naomi McCobb. We will be playing some of her favourite games and having her favourite snacks. 


We have introduced a payment scheme for Friday Pathfinders for this coming term, I have sent everybody who was involved in our Youthwork last year an email detailing what this will consist of, if you haven't received this email please let me know and I can send this to you!

Cell Groups
This week all the cell groups will be meeting at the Ferrier's house on Thursday 18th July at 6:30pm - 8:45pm. All cell groups are welcome from year 6 to year 13 and come prepared to get wet. We will play games together, eat off the barbecue, have a reflection and then have a water fight. It is always a fantastic evening so do come along.






Younger and Older Friday Pathfinders

This week both younger and older pathfinders going to Oxford Wet N Wild, a giant inflatable on a reservoir. I am afraid if you haven't already booked onto this trip, it is too late. Please can those who have signed up be there for 5:15pm. This is to ensure we have enough time to have the safety briefing before the fun begins. Please find the details of timings and postcode  here


This is the last Pathfinders of the year. We have loved having you all join us on a Friday night throughout the year and we look forward to seeing you all in September. We will work hard over the summer to come up with new and inventive sessions, alongside the classics! Have a good summer.





Sunday Pathfinders & CYFA 
There is no Sunday Pathfinders or CYFA this week as it is Baptism Sunday. 


Soul Survivor 

Thank you everybody for your help with fundraising for Soul Survivor. Team man and the cream teas raised a fantastic amount of money. Parents will receive an email detailing the final payment for your child.

July 5th - 12th

Coming up next week... 
Sun's out, read the blog (as the old saying goes). We are edging ever closer to the summer holidays, but we have got a lot to pack in before then! There is a film night, a trip to Wet n' Wild, cell group socials and a bit of Carnival based fund raising! This weeks blog also comes with a complimentary vlog for those of a more vlog like persuasion. You can get to it by clicking here. Let us know what you think and if they work better for a few people we might keep them up...

Cell Groups
This week, with the exception of year 12-13 cell (who will be having a CAP session on how to manage money when away from home) all cells will be having an individual social. It will be up to each cell to organise what they do but it will probably contain some sort of food and games. This will be in preparation for next weeks Joint Cell Summer Social EXTRAVAGANZA (more on that next week).

Year 9 cell will be planning their social time tonight with the group. It will very likely be starting a bit earlier (6.30-9.00) and will almost definitely involved food! 



If you love a bit of flower arranging (and lets face it, who doesn't) then please could you come along to St. L's church this Friday (5th) either at 2.30 (for those who are chilling after exams) or straight after school for those who still have school. It will be fun, I promise. 


Younger and Older Friday Pathfinders
This Friday's Friday Pathfinders (5th) is a Joint Movie Night! We will be starting at 6.30pm and finishing at 8.30pm. Please feel free to bring any DVD you think is worth a watch. This will be whittled down to a choice of 3 and the group will get a vote. My vote is for a Marvel film... 






Next week (12th) we are going to Oxford Wet n Wild. If you haven't got your forms in the deadline is Sunday (7th), so make your you fill out the consent form and pay by then! You can download the form here


Please find the term rota Here




Sunday Pathfinders & CYFA

Soul Survivor 

Its our biggest SS fundraiser of the year on Saturday; helping at the carnival. If you have already signed up to help then that is brilliant. If you want to but haven't let us know, then please lets us know by tomorrow at the latest.

Older Friday Pathfinders
Tonight is tournament night. A night which you get to compete against everybody individually at anything you wish. Maybe your skill is holding your breath, maybe its keepy ups with a tennis ball, the only catch is you have to negotiate with your opponent or they won't play against you. Come with some challenge ideas.

Younger Friday Pathfinders
The theme of tonights Friday Pathfinders (21st June) is Winter Night. When we planned this session it was supposed to be ironic, but c'est la météo (now this blog can count as french revision fyi).

Next week is Marvel night. If i had planned this, it would be titled Iron Man night (as he is by far the best superhero) But Olly has planned it so who knows what will happen. It will be fun though.

You should have received a letter regarding our Aqua Park trip. We need to start sorting this trip so please let us know if you're interested. You can download the form here










Please find the term rota Here

Older Friday Pathfinders
Tonight is Marvel night. Brush up on your suit making skills and your superhero knowledge as both of these will be put to the test.

Next week is tournament night, you will compete against each other in a series of challenges to see who comes out as overall champion. There is even a trophy so your name will be forever remembered in Pathfinder folklore.
