Charity Film Night

Awesome night at FNY watching Star Wars, eating lots and raising over £50 for our young people’s chosen charities: Macmillan and Wishes for Kids. Watch this space for our next event to add to that amount which is BBQ and water games on Friday 1st July 😀

Well done everyone!

Awesome to have one of our young people lead a session by themselves last Sunday and exciting to see the powerful pictures of passionate and loving hearts wanting to make a difference.

“We must go, live to feed the hungry, stand beside the broken, we must go,

Stepping forward keep us from just singing move us into action, we must go.”

Next Friday (27th May) we have a Film night watching the latest Star Wars Film on the Big screen to raise money for our FNY young people’s chosen charities: Macmillan supporting people battling cancer and Wishes for Kids which provides exciting experiences for children and young people with serious or terminal illness.

The suggested donation for a ticket is £3 which includes drink, crisps and popcorn. All proceeds go to the above charities.

It’s 7pm-9:30pm – St Paul’s Church, Oaby – Invite your friends, we’d love to see you there 🙂

Assembly Party Time!

So this is my uniform for assemblies this week in Manor High School, sharing the party celebrations and meaning behind the season of Pentecost with over 900 young people as we celebrate Leicester City’s Victory Parade this week 🙂

Pentecost is the birthday of the Church, a time to celebrate the beginning of a movement inspired, challenged, filled, equipped, sent and led by Jesus to bring hope, love, light and meaning to a world that is often lacking those things.

Please pray for us as we take this message this week – bringing the hope of Jesus.

A Sunny day for an important cause!

Today we had our Creative prayer drop in to raise awareness and love and care for the issue of mental health. This was part of the national prayer initiative of THY KINGDOM COME so at St Paul’s and churches across the country we have been praying daily for the hope and love and Jesus to be seen more and more in our communities, nation and world. We were joined by our new Bishop of Leicester Bishop Martyn Snow and we had over 30 people join us over the hour and a half 🙂

Mental health is something very close to our young people’s hearts and something they chose as a missional area to make a difference in this term, which was why we chose this specific topic for our prayer space.

Our young people have also made a video that we will share on social media on Sunday ready for Mental Health awareness week – so watch this space for that – it includes messages of love and encouragements and stats to show the importance of this issue ❤ Feel free to share it.

A huge thank you to everyone who came.

Much love, Lou. x

Our youth have recorded a video to raise awareness and share love on the issue of mental health. It contains personal messages from them to people who are battling some of these issues – we love you – you are precious and valuable – you are not alone. It’s on Youtube, it’s only a minute and a half, so feel free to check it out and share it to encourage people and raise awareness. Mental Health awareness is Monday 16th May -Sunday 22nd May – let’s share the love.

It’s EUROVISION this weekend! And at FNY we’re going to have our Karaoke game up on the big screen in celebration of Eurovision weekend!

We will have all our usual activities and if the weather’s nice we’ll go out on the green for some sport, but we’ll also have this available for a bit on fun this Friday!

Hope to see you there 🙂

Creative Prayer Drop In

On Thursday 12th May 3pm-4:30pm we have a prayer drop in – the main aim is to raise awareness of the issues when people struggle with their mental health, what can we learn, what can we share, how can we help, how can we care and love more? Through chill space and creative activities we’ll explore this more.

Here are the activity posters/instructions below to give you an idea:

It includes a free hot chocolate and you’re free to drop in and stay however long you want.

So come along for a chilled space where we can learn to love and care for this issue more and more. #Breakthestigma
