16-23th Dec

Coming up next week... 
Who will read my wonderful blog and put it in a box for me (my take on an Oliver classic). Good luck to all our young people performing in Oliver at school this week, break a leg (I've never understood this phrase but its always used!) The Christmas holidays are almost upon us with just one more event happening, read to find out the final details....

Cell Groups
Individual cell groups have finished for the year, and what a decade it has been. Thank you all for coming, and a big thank you for all the leaders who have helped. Fear not, the cell social is happening Thursday!








Cell Social

THE CELL CHRISTMAS SOCIAL IS HERE!

This Thursday (19th December) we are meeting at the church for 7pm. I have been on the phone to Domino's this morning arranging the massive pizza order. Make sure you come dressed in your finest threads as we join together to eat, play games and celebrate Christmas. 

If you haven't already signed up, please do this now, as otherwise we won't get enough food to feed everybody. 

Please use this link to purchase your ticket

If there is anyone willing to come do some washing up whilst we have our social, that would be amazing and your support would be repaid with some Christmas nibbles! Please let me know if you would be up for it!

Younger and Older Pathfinders
Both younger and older Pathfinders are finished for the decade, see you all in 2020. For now, enjoy this photo from pathfinders does bakeoff



Sunday Pathfinders
There is no Sunday Pathfinders this week, but we are leading prayers in church, we wrote them this Sunday and if people could help us read them out in the service that would be great!

Cell Social

The cell Christmas social is on Thursday 19th December at 7pm. A night where we all dress in our finest clobber and dine like kings on Domino's pizza (other pizzas are available just not on the night for us!). We will play games, eat together and celebrate Christmas in style. There is a slight cost for this event, but it is certainly worth it. The sooner you pay for your ticket, the earlier you will be allowed up for food on the night, meaning you get first pick of the pizza!!

WE REALLY NEED YOU TO SIGN UP FOR THIS SOON OR WE WONT HAVE ENOUGH FOOD

Younger and Older Pathfinders
This week (13th Dec), both groups are going to join together to celebrate Christmas by watching a Christmas classic. I am open to suggestions, but I am think along the lines of Elf or the Grinch. There will be movie snacks provided. Due to use watching a film we will start at 6:30 and end at 8:30.



Sunday Pathfinders
Sunday Pathfinders is on this week, looking at another of the advent candles!

Good news

Public announcement blog! 

Good morning everybody, I bring you good news. Edward Joel Shaw was born at 1:36am this morning, weight 9lbs 4 (which is big I am told). Jo, Edward and Olly are all doing well. 

I know everybody will be really excited to meet Edward and I'm sure the Shaws will introduce him soon, but please remember to respect their time to get used to parents of two.

Just want to finish by thanking God for a safe birth and for blessing Jo and Olly with a second child. 


Paternity leave
Now that Edward has arrived, paternity leave begins. Olly won't be around for the next two weeks, most likely returning for the Christmas social. Fear not, in his absence, I will be in charge and Peter Lockwood will become my minion. Please treat him with the same respect you treat us with

Younger Pathfinders
What a great week we had at Lyall and Co, fantastic pizza, great coffee shame about the odd bearded man serving it, I am sure he wasn't supposed to be there? 

This week (6th Dec) the pathfinders theme is a mystery. We might play Frisbee, we might play party games, come along and find out.

Next week (13th Dec) is the last pathfinders of the year, and we will be having a film night.
