First up, I’m about to go on leave for a few days so there will be no post from me next week.
However, I’m back on Sunday 16th for our 5pm CLASSIC YOUTH GAMES. This is going to be one hour of people’s favourite youth group/youth camp/school camp games; at least the ones that fit in our building and are legal 😉
We’ll have a mix of high intensity and low intensity so there should be a good mix of activities for everyone.
Can parents play? Yes, yes you can. I’ll leave it up to you whether that’s a wise move in your parent/child relationship 😉
This is a slightly risky event for us to run because it does rely on a good turn out to ensure it’s fun so we hope to see heaps of you there!
Here’s the Facebook event.
During the three Sundays of the school holidays we give our cooks a rest and take a break from 5pm dinners. However, on the last Sunday of the holidays (July 16) there will be some fun-times activities from 5-6pm. Classic games from youth group/camp. Pop it in your diary, more details to come.
For the rest of the year we plan to do one big pre-service event each term as well as some post-service activities during holidays/long weekends. If you’re ever wondering what’s coming up, check out our Facebook page, it’s up to date about 95% of the time 😉
This week I have news on our 5pm activities which have been running before the Sunday@6 service each week. It’s possible this might get complicated so I’ll try and be extra clear by using the ancient art of formatting.
- 5pm Dinners WILL continue every fortnight. Here are the remaining dates for term two: 21/5, 4/6 & 18/6.
- The activities that were happening on the alternate weeks are going on a temporary PAUSE and will not be running for the remainder of term 2. Basically we are not satisfied with where these activities are at at the moment and believe they have lost a bit of direction and purpose. Our Sunday Core Team will be brainstorming this issue at our upcoming meeting and seeking to refocus our community building activities in and around Sunday@6.
- Because of this change, the prayer meetings that happen before each service will be different too. On dinner weeks, they will continue to be at 4:30. On alternate weeks the prayer meeting will be at 5pm. Again, this is a short term change for term two only. We have youth attend the prayer meetings occasionally, I think they are a great place for them to learn how to pray and meet Christians outside their age group.
Hope all that makes sense and hope to have some updates to this news in future weeks.
I’ve posted about Youth Unite before but it’s on tonight so thought I’d mention it one last time.
Life Groups. If you’ve registered for a group then it’s likely that you’ve heard from me or a leader already. If not, please drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Is it too late to join a group? Never! Just let us know you’re keen and we’ll see what we can do.
Trivia! At 5pm on Sundays (school and public holidays excluded) we have pre-service activities. Every second week it’s dinner but on the other weeks we do other stuff. This Sunday we’ve got some Trivia fun times planned. Click here for the Facebook event.
Oh, and don’t forget Camp Crave 🙂
I hope the holidays treated you and your family well. This Sunday 5pm dinner is back on (note, I think I got this wrong in the notice time last Sunday, apologies for that). Come along for a free feed with some friendly people, then stick around for our service which will focus on how God can bring purpose and direction in life (with a bit of an adventure/Lord of the Rings flavor).
