What an amazing evening celebrating the faith of these 5 young people! It was such a privilege and I’m so proud of them all.
It’s such a blessing to work with our young people and I feel incredibly proud seeing them confirm their faith tonight. They are caring, loving, humble, compassionate, courageous, inspiring and generous followers of Jesus and tonight was a lovely way to celebrate them and thank God for them. Here’s one very proud youth worker 😉
Praise God for all he is doing in and through their lives and how they bring love, light hope and Jesus to others. Please remember them and all of our young people in your prayers 🙂 ❤
Tonight we had a great time at our Glow Party with our pals from the Baptist church joining us 🙂
Lots of food, face paint, glow sticks, fun, and creativity later we finished with a Harry Potter clip, a reminder of the power of light in the darkness and Jesus’ help and light and hope in our tough times and of course rounded off with goodie bags!
Thanks to everyone who came and made it a fab evening 🙂

Tonight at Ignite we had a film night, watching Divergent and then reflecting on the question: “WHAT IS CHURCH?” through some creative stuff around the room. It’s great to think about church afresh and what it can be and even better when it’s accompanied with chip cobs! 🙂
Watch this space for Ignite Christmas 🙂
Some of our young people are being confirmed! A special service where because they feel they own their faith for themselves they want to confirm and celebrate it with the rest of us 🙂 it will include worship band, talk, communion and a great chance to come and support these brilliant people as they share their stories. With some yummy cake and coffee afterwards 🙂

This is a video sharing some of St Paul’s Youth weekend away. Our theme was Life and Faith survival looking at what Jesus, Bear Grylls and penguins can teach us about how we face life and it’s ups and downs, how we prepare, how we keep going, how we need each other, how we share our story and how we face the adventure ahead. We made bread, kites, and bags, we did sports, and games and had a cool campfire with marshmallows and some valuable and precious time with God. Feeling so inspired and amazed by our young people and all that God is doing in their lives and excited for possible baptisms in the new year! 🙂 Here are just a few of the photos from the weekend.
