27th Jan - 3rd Feb

Coming up this week... 

Hold on to your horses. Unless you don't have any horses, which come to think of it, most people don't... I feel like I might be mixing up my expressions here. Anyway, here is what you need to know this week...


Cell Groups 
All cell groups will continue preparing for the Cell Celebration that is happening on the 5th Feb. If you want to know which cell is leading what, feast your eyes below: 

Year 7 Cell - Prayer stations 
Year 8 Cell - Prayer stations 
Year 9 Cell - Talk 
Year 10 Cell - Prayer stations
Year 11 Cell - video/drama/creative presentation 
Year 12 Cell - up front reflection activity  
Year 13 Cell -welcome, welcome game and refreshments



Friday Pathfinders (younger)
IT HAS ARRIVED. Today (27th Jan) Younger Friday Pathfinders will be having its first ever murder mystery night!! Most of you should already have your characters from last week, but, if you don't there will be some roles you can have and still play (just come dressed smart!). Oh, and try not to get murdered... 


Next week (3rd Feb) we will be having a 'Challenge night'. Prepare to be challenged! 

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (27th) we will be going to a really great talk that is happening in the church by a guy called Charlie Walker.

He will be talking about an adventure he went on, where basically he set off on a bike armed  with only a tent, rode thousands of miles and then came home 4 years later... should be pretty interesting. 




Next week (3rd Feb) is still TBD, but last week we had an amazing time celebrating the fact that Peter is now really old. Thank you to everyone who came and a big thank you to Hazzy for the brilliant pass the parcel (some of the best prizes I have ever seen). 




Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week and its being led by Olly and Graham. The theme this week (and for quite a bit actually) is who Jesus is. 

CYFA 
There is no CYFA this Sunday but next week (5th Feb) we will be back and looking a the discipline of fasting. 


YOUTH. WEEKEND. AWAY.
The deadline for the weekend away letters has past, but if you are really nice to me, I still might be able to squeeze you in! 

If you still haven't had a letter you can download them from here

20t - 27th January

Coming up this week... 

The days are getting longer, and my intros are getting shorter. Cells are back, pathfinders is back and now lots of the youth work lot are gearing up for the weekend away. Here is what you need to know this week...

Soul Survivor
We had our first Soul Survivor planning meeting, which was pretty productive, well way more than they usually are anyway! 

Don't let this photo fool you. I took it after all the important organisey type work was done 
We have planned a few fundraisers and decided on who is organising them. If you want to know about all that stuff but couldn't make the meeting, let me know and I will fill you in and send you the notes we took (thanks for those by the way Elizabeth!). 

Cell Groups 
All cell groups start preparing for the Cell Celebration that is happening on the 5th Feb. If you want to know which cell is leading what, feast your eyes below: 

Year 7 Cell - Prayer stations 
Year 8 Cell - Prayer stations 
Year 9 Cell - Talk 
Year 10 Cell - Prayer stations
Year 11 Cell - video/drama/creative presentation 
Year 12 Cell - up front reflection activity  
Year 13 Cell -welcome, welcome game and refreshments

If you look very closely you will notice that Jude is, in fact, pulling the exact same face as the biscuit display behind him (a strange coincidence, but they do happen).

Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today (20th) Younger Pathfinders is playing having a 'Movie Night' (while we still have a bit of darkness for the screen to look nice). We will also be giving out the roles for next weeks murder mystery, so if you want a character for the murder mystery, make sure you come along tonight! 

I don't want to sway your decision, but this is one of the best films ever! 

Next week (27th) we are having our first every murder mystery dunnnn duunnnn duuuuuunnnnnnnnn..... 
Coming soon to a Pathfinders near you...

Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (20th) it is Peter's birthday, well I suppose its his birthday all day really - Happy Birthday Peter! - any way, because it's his birthday we are having kids classic party games all night (obviously including that classic kid friendly party game killer frisbee.  
THE MAN. THE LEGEND.
Next week (27th) we will be going to a really great talk that is happening in the church by this guy: 

He's an explorer and if you look at his Instagram it looks like he's done some pretty fun stuff! He's related to Alice Davies, so he has agreed to come and talk a talk at our church.


Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week and its being led by Olly and Graham. The theme this week (and for quite a bit actually is who Jesus is). 

CYFA 
There is no CYFA this Sunday because Nick (one of our leaders) is preaching and we thought he might need the support (he gets very nervous, bless him). 


YOUTH. WEEKEND. AWAY.

13th - 20th January

Coming up this week... 

We are now back into the swing of things. Cells have start, Friday Pathfinders is on tonight and we are gearing up for the weekend away! 

Soul Survivor
Every year we take a group of people in year 9 and above to a Christian festival called Soul Survivor

This year we will be going again!! The dates are the 24th - 30th August, so if you want to come, put it in your diaries/phones/bits of paper/however you keep track of dates (week C for those in the know).

Letters will be coming out for that trip in the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out for them if you are interested!   

Cell Groups 
Some of the groups have got a bit out of sync with each other, but hopefully in the next couple of weeks, most groups will have caught up. 
Year 7 cell will be looking at Spiritual Disciplines. 
Year 8 and 9 cell will be doing a second session on Mental Health.
Year 10, 11 and 13 cell will be doing Mental Health for the first time.  
Year 12 will be starting a 4 part set of sessions on family.


Most people don't realise what hard work it is being a cell leader, but Jack's face here says it all ;)

Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today (13th) Younger Pathfinders is playing Dark Games. If you have a torch you might want to bring it, and if I were you, I'd dress all in black!! 


Next week (20th) it will be another 'Movie Night' (while its still dark enough for the screen to look good). So, bring some movies along with you when you come.


Friday Pathfinders (older)
Tonight (13th) we will making plans like the geniuses (or is it genii) we are.

Next week .... who knows?!


Sunday Pathfinders

6th - 13th Jan

Coming up this week... 

This is the first blog of 2017! Just before the first proper week of our youth work in 2017. Happy New Year!! I hope everyone had a brilliant Christmas! 

Cell Groups 
Cell groups start back next Monday (9th Jan) with most cells having a social, but cell groups in year 12+ looking at 'spiritual disciplines'.



Thank you to everyone who helped out with setting up (and washing up!!) for the cell social and to everyone came along. It was such a nice end to the cell group year to have everyone all  together. 

To make sure we keep making them better, if you came or if you are the parent of someone who came, please could you fill out the feedback form here
(its only 10 questions and one of them is what superpower would you have, shapeshifting is very popular and currently tied for first place with flying, who knew)


Friday Pathfinders (younger)
Today (6th) leaders are having our termly leaders meeting, so the is no Pathfinders :(. Don't worry though because we will be coming up with lots of exciting/creative/weird plans for stuff to do this term and we'll be back raring and ready to go next week (14th)


Friday Pathfinders (older)
Same deal with Older Friday Pathfinders as Younger. We actually have a new leader joining the team, which is exciting. We'll introduce you to her soon. Also get your thinking hats on, because, as usual you will need to vote on what we do next term. 


Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week and its being led by Jennifer and Simon. Its about the Epiphany (bless you). I didn't know what that word meant either, but google it if you want to be in the know. 

CYFA 
There is no CYFA this Sunday but the Youth Band are playing so it should be pretty darn good. 


YOUTH. WEEKEND. AWAY.
The deadline for getting the Weekend Away forms is looming ever closer (16th Jan) so get your forms in as soon as you can. 

The forms for the weekend away should have been given out at cell groups and Pathfinders last week but if you still haven't had a letter you can download them from here

If you looked at them before, they were only Pages documents. I've fixed that now so that they are PDFs
