St Paul's And Holy Cross Youth Work News
It has been good to get all the youth activities back up and running after a busy summer away. It has been a real blessing to have Andy (a gap year student) join me for the year, I will let him introduce himself.
“Hi there! It’s been really great to meet so many of you already, and I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of you soon! Thank you so much for your warm welcome. I am originally from Blackpool, but I spent the last academic year working as an Intern at Christ Church Chorleywood, doing youth and children’s work. I am really excited about what God has in store for me and all of us in the two churches this year, from what I’ve seen so far there is huge potential for great things to happen! Thanks again for your welcome.” Andy
I am constantly giving thanks to God for all He has done in the youth and children’s work since I started my job two years ago. Things have been growing rapidly and we now have four Small Groups (fun Bible studies) for school years 6 to 9 and one for years 10 to 13 running. Contact has moved to two groups, both still meeting on a Monday evening, with Years 6-8 coming from 6.15 to 7.30pm and Years 9 & 10 from 7.45 to 9pm. So far this has worked really well, we are able to do more interactive games with the younger group and the older group enjoy having more space to chill out and catching up with their friends. This term in both groups we are going to be looking at the 10 Commandments.
This term we will be seeing the launch of Accelerate, our new fun filled Saturday morning club for School Years 1 – 6. We will be having a jungle theme throughout this year with games, drama, music, crafts and fun Bible teaching. The first Accelerate is going to be on 11 November.
