June 1st - 7th June

Coming up next week... 
Welcome back. We are into the final term of the academic year, and everything is still a little bit strange. We are still here, planning new material for you guys, writing plans and coming up with (hopefully) some fun and engaging stuff for you to get stuck into. 


Cell Groups
Cell groups are back this week. Different groups will be up to different points through the devotional plans but we are continuing with that this week. Please let us know how you have found the devotionals, it is great to have feedback both good and bad on how you are finding things, so that we can make it even better!

Can you guess which school related words these pictures are from year 7 cell? 




Friday Pathfinders 
Will be canceled until further notice... however both Olly and I will be available to chat or give you creative one player game ideas using the contact details below!! Genuinely do get in touch on a Friday night if you are bored... we probably will be too. 



CYFA
We had a great CYFA yesterday (May 31st) on RAVE where we watched an Andy Croft talk and discussed it together. We are going to be doing the same, but this time with a Mike Pillavachi talk on the 14th June, see you all for that I hope.

Sunday 
Alongside the Sunday service, Olly and I have created a series of talking point videos. These are just a few simple questions to discuss in your homes, with your friends or just to think about on your own. They are based around the topic of the Sunday service and are just aimed to get you thinking that little bit more. We hope you enjoy them!

New Challenges 
Well well well. Who would have thought that age would triumph over beauty in the battle of the youth workers. Olly came out on top (somehow) but we both really enjoyed it, so thanks to those who came up with the challenges, and especially thanks to Jake Holton for taking on the mantle of posting and uploading a load of content. We decided to join together for the last task of making up a dance, use the link to view our video!

Dobbo and Olly dance

The bible in lockdown challenge is still going on! We have moved into Joshua and Acts, and I think now is the most important time of challenge. As society opens up, and there is more to do, it would be easy to stop reading the bible as much, but let's keep going. 

There will be some new content coming soon, we are just trying to work out how best to do this, so watch this space. 

If you would like to be involved and you already aren't, either get in touch with Olly and I or follow @stleonardslockdown on instagram.

18th May

Coming up next week... 
Hello, just a quick blog today, this will be the last week of Youthwork before we take a short break for half term, read on to find out what's going on this week!

Cell groups are on this week, continuing on our weekly devotionals on characters in lockdown. Most are doing Daniel and his determination! There will be no cells next week due to half term, but we will be back on the 1st of June

Friday Pathfinders 
Will be canceled until further notice... however both Olly and I will be available to chat or give you creative one player game ideas using the contact details below!! Genuinely do get in touch on a Friday night if you are bored... we probably will be too. 



CYFA

Sunday 
Alongside the Sunday service, Olly and I have created a series of talking point videos.

The challenge has changed hands, and the youth are in charge. The battle of the youth workers is in full flow, at the time of writing this blog the score is 11-8 to Dobbo (I think), but that will soon change...

8th May

Coming up next week... 
Helloooo, its me, I was wondering if after all this time you'd like to meet? Well right now, we can still only meet online, and I am missing seeing everybody in person. I hope everyone is doing well, but if anybody wants a chat about anything, don't worry about getting in touch, Olly and I are probably feeling the same and are happy to chat with anybody who wants too. For now, read on to find out more about this weeks online Youthwork. 


Cell Groups
Cell groups are back starting today. I am not 100% sure on cell group timings as things are always changing slightly, so check in with your leaders about what time your cell is. We are starting a series on people in the bible who experienced a lockdown of some sorts. Each week a devotional will be sent out to you which if you can, you should do before cell. You will then be discussing that devotional, and more around that character at cell. SO you don't HAVE to do the devotional, but we encourage it as it will be really cool!

This week I believe most people are looking at Daniel, whilst a couple may be looking at Moses


Friday Pathfinders 
Will be canceled until further notice... however both Olly and I will be available to chat or give you creative one player game ideas using the contact details below!! Genuinely do get in touch on a Friday night if you are bored... we probably will be too. 



CYFA
CYFA met last week on Discord and will be back on the 17th of May

New Challenges 
The daily lockdown challenges have finished. Lots of effort went in from all involved and it was really enjoyable to see people joining in. 

The Tuck family took the trophy by one point with Sasha coming second. Your prizes are being ordered and sent to you today!

The bible in a lockdown challenge is still going on, we are coming to end of Exodus and have completed the first two gospels. 

If you like to be involved and you already aren't, either get in touch with Olly and I or follow @stleonardslockdown on instagram. After the break we may have something new for you all, but we have to think it up first!

20th April

Coming up next week... 
Hello everyone, we miss all your lovely faces, and are really looking forward to the time lockdown is over, and we can get back to normal Youthwork. We made the decision to continue our provision through the school holidays, but youth workers need a break too! So this week have groups but next week (commencing Sunday 26th April) we will be taking a week off. Read on to find out what is happening this week...


Cell Groups
Most cell groups are continuing this week and are still focussed on the encountering God plans. 

Each call can last up to 40 minutes, so during that time we will discuss a bible passage or some questions, pray together and maybe even play a few games. To download please click here.

Due to doing things online now, we might be looking to alter some of the times of cell groups, each cell will be individually contacted either through your group chat, or through your parents via email!


Friday Pathfinders 
Will be canceled until further notice... however both Olly and I will be available to chat or give you creative one player game ideas using the contact details below!! Genuinely do get in touch on a Friday night if you are bored... we probably will be too. 


Sunday Pathfinders 
We had been providing Sunday Pathfinder devotionals. This is going to stop for a while, and instead we are encouraging you to join the Sunday morning service. We have put a couple of questions into it for you guys to discuss with your families, or those who you are in lockdown with.



CYFA
After a great discussion about healing on Sunday, we are now working out what our next discussion will be on. You will be informed through discord as normal. If anybody isn't on the discord chat, please let us know. We will be back on the 3rd of May 


Sunday

10th -16th April

Coming up next week... 
As it looks like we might be heading into an extended lockdown, I must say I am getting used to working from home, but I would much prefer to be seeing everybody face to face. But for now, keep going. If anybody needs anything or just wants a chat, please do get in touch with Olly and I as we always want to hear from you. We have a couple of exciting challenges coming up this week so do read on to find out.

(Oh and by the way Happy Easter!!)

There is no CYFA this week, but we will be back next week with a video for you to watch before discussing together on Discord. Similar to Sunday Pathfinders, please engage with the material produced by the church. 



Sunday 
The Sunday service can be found here. There is also a fantastic meditation video and Good Friday reflection video also on the website. 

New Challenges 
On Monday 13th April we are starting two new challenges. First a bible reading challenge, to read the Old Testament by the 31st of December and to read the New Testament by the 1st September. You can choose to join in with one or both Testaments or neither if you don't want too! No pressure

We are also setting a daily challenge, where you guys can send in a photo or a video of you completing the challenge. You can earn points, and remember points win prizes. All the information for this has come out in an email to your parents or is on the new instagram called @stleonardslockdown . If you do not have instagram but wish to take part, we have also created a new blog just for these challenges and you can find that through the link below.

Spring Harvest Home
Next week was meant to be Spring Harvest annual conference at Butlins. For those who haven't heard of it, its pretty similar to Soul Survivor just for families instead of just youth. They have produced material for all ages, and this will be running from Monday to Friday next week. They have some great speakers lined up, so if you want some extra christian content next week, please use it. Just go onto Spring Harvest's website for more information
