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

Come with some challenge ideas.

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.
