Coming up next week... 
That's it, the last week of this half term is over. Roll on the holidays and roll on the next half term. See you on the other side...









Cell Groups! 
Because it is half term next week (huzzaaahh) that means that there won't be any cell groups, boooooo. 

If you feel you need that cell group hole filling in your week, there is a chance to meet up with some people from cell (and also some Swedish young people) on Monday of half term. We will be meeting in Hanborough, having some pizza and having a chat. If you want to know more then get in touch using the details below. 

In the mean time take a look at some of these pictures: 


After half term, year 7-8 will be looking at a book in the bible (unconfirmed which one). Year 9 will do the loving your enemies plan and year 10-13 will be having a session on romantic relationships. 

Younger and Older Friday Pathfinders
Tomorrow night (15th Feb) we are having a joint trip to Hollywood Bowl for some bowling and fast food related fun.

Next week there isn't any Pathfinders... because it's half term. 



Sunday Pathfinders
There is Sunday Pathfinders this week where you will be looking more at charities which we wish to support and experiencing a new, or way, method of prayer.
