This week in St. Leonard's Youth........

Coming up this week... 

We are BACK baby!! I hope you have all had a lovely half term. The half term break is now over and St. Leonard's youth is back and operational. Here is what is coming up this week...






Cell...
All Cell Groups are starting back this week. For most Cell Groups, this first session will be a social but some groups will be getting stuck in with some deeper stuff straight away. 



Friday Pathfinders...
Before half term we had two very exciting session with lights, lazers and smoke! Younger Pathfinders was Never Mind the Buzzcocks Night which, if you have never watched the TV show, is a fast paced music based quiz: 



This week at Youngers we will be doing a Hollywood night, and its going to be fabulous darling!  



For Older Pathfinders last week we went for a straight up DISCO, raving to music of varying quality from different people phones: 




This week, for Older Pathfinders, we will be running our very own Thirsty Meeples night, with a cafe and HUNDREDS of amazing board games to choose from. 


CYFA & Sunday Pathfinders
At Church this week we have an AMAZING man called Vladimir coming to talk to us about the work his fantastic charity does in Moldova to help lead the fight against human traffiking. 

Because he is coming, CYFA will be staying in church instead of going out as normal. 

Pathfinders will be going out as normal and looking at the topic of "The Power of the Gospel". 
I couldn't find a photo that linked to CYFA or Pathfinders this week, but I thought everyone might enjoy this photo of Paddy doing an impression of a really big potato. 

In other news...
Even though there we no groups on last week, that doesn't mean that our youth workers were slacking. And while we were busy beavering away in the office we had a lovely intruder  visitor come to see us, which was nice :-) 


For those of you that don't know, the blonde girl trapped outside is Sarah, who did a youth work internship with us at St. Leonard's last year.

This week in St. Leonard's Youth.......

Coming up this week... 

Apologies that there was no update blog for the past 2 weeks. All in all it has been an amazing 2 weeks. If you don't know what has been happing feel free to get in touch for a chat. Here is what is happening this week...





Cell...
Last Sunday (8th) was our termly Cell Celebration. Normally Cell Groups don't meet after Cell Celebrations, but this week we are breaking that norm and having 1 more cell session before half term.  



The theme for this terms Cell Celebration was 'Telling the World' and it was amazing to see all the cell groups getting together and worshipping God. The Vine did a brilliant job of leading worship, Year 10 cell gave a great talk and all the other cells made some fantastic prayer stations.   


Friday Pathfinders...
Over the last 2 weeks at Younger Pathfinders we have had Takeshi's Castle night and a Scrap Heap Challenge night which have both been really fun (prepare for masses of photos): 









For Older Pathfinders we have had a Classic Sports Day night and a Nerf Wars night over the past 2 weeks: 




This week we will be having a D-I-S-C-O!! We have smoke, we have lazers, we have foam and we have loud music. What's not to love? 


CYFA & Sunday Pathfinders
CYFA and Sunday Pathfinders are both on this week. CYFA will be looking at the very appropriate topic of healing and Sunday Pathfinders will looking at Forgiveness and Grace. 



Half term
Next week will be half term! Whoop whoop! That means that there wont be any groups happening in St. Leonard's youth though :-(. All groups will start back again on the week commencing 23rd February so it wont be too long to wait...
