Congrats, you made it. First week back after the Christmas holidays is always a struggle but you have done it. Now it's time to get back to nitty gritty of our Youthwork, and as some of you may know, there has been a major change. Olly has moved to a part time job in the church to take up an exciting new venture with the Diocese of Oxford, meaning that myself (Steven Dobson/Dobbo) have been employed to work alongside him. This is my first official blog so please be kind! Your leaders have been busy attending meetings all week but lets look at what is coming up this week...


Cell Groups! 
Cell groups start again this week, year 7-9 are going to be having a social, year 10, 11 and 13 are going to also be having a social but with a discussion about how last term went and plans for this term, and year 12 will be having a session on Gender as this is what they asked for!

4th - 11th January

Coming up next week... 
Happy New Year and welcome to 2019!! I hope every has had a great Christmas time and enjoyed what ever you were doing. Feel free to boast about any exploits, but not too much or we might get jealous. Look below for our big news of 2019 (if you haven't heard it already) and also to find out what is happening with the youth work in the coming week... 

News...
You may have heard this already, but as of the 7th January Olly Shaw (our faithful old  young, youth worker) is being seconded to the Diocese of Oxford, part time, to work as a Pioneer Deanery Youth Minister. He will be exploring ways to support rural churches in their work with young people for 15 hours a week! 

In order to make sure sure everything still gets done, Steven Dobson has been employed to fill those 15 hours and work part time alongside Olly in heading up the youth work. 


For those of you who do not know Steven, he has been a part of St. Leonard's Youth for a very long time as a member of a Cell Group and, since graduating cell, as a trusted and reliable volunteer. 



If you have any questions or would like to know more, then please feel free to get in touch. 

Cell Groups! 
There are no cell groups next week, because all our youth leaders are getting together in the church on Monday 7th for a vision and curry evening. Normal service will resume on Monday 14th Jan when all cell groups will be starting again in their usual times and usual places. 

While you are waiting for cells to start, why not enjoy these photos of last years (!) Christmas social?



Younger and Older Friday Pathfinders
There is no Friday Pathfinders next week (11th) as all your loving leaders are meeting up to plan next term for you (isn't that kind). But we are back the week after (18th), New Year, new fun as the old saying goes... 


Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is back for another New Year. Make sure you are around for the first session to review what we have done and grill and extra special guest...
