The group will return in September.

The YG group enjoyed their first outdoor gathering of the year when they attended the annual ‘Pentecost in the Park’ event. Lister Park was for the most part bathed in bright sunshine for most of the afternoon. It was only towards the end of the event that the heavens opened and duly reminded us that we were in Yorkshire after all.
There was a vast amount of fun and chaos as we attempted to create our own pizzas, without the aid of Katy who was down with the cold lurgy. Kate Beck stepped into the breech with great aplomb and supervised the bread base making whilst I oversaw the use of sharp knives.
The YG group will be meeting again this Sunday at 5.30pm until 8.00pm. This month we are going to make pizza from scratch – which should be great fun. Kate Beck will be leading our session time together. So there is a lot to look forward to!
Sun 11th May – 6 Glenhurst Road
All young people welcome!
The young people congregated at the home of John and Hilary for their monthly meeting.
We began by creating some Easter boxes for the Food Bank. Once decorated these were filled with mini chocolate eggs and hopefully they will be a small treat for those who receive a food parcel over Easter.
We talked about the problems that many people are having making ends meet today and then related that back to New Testament times when the poor were being constantly forced into debt and homelessness as the Romans exacted heavy taxes and took people’s land to give it to their rich friends.
Then we cooked up a heap of stir fry as a reward for our efforts. We even managed to wash up. It was a great night as you can see from the photos.
The YG group will be meeting again this Sunday at 5.30pm until 8.00pm. We will be endeavour to produce another delicious meal as well as to provide an Easter treat for those who will have little food over the period.
We have been invited to meet at the home of John and Hilary Paley, and our thanks go to them.

All young people welcome!
Last week YG met at the home of Mark and Karen (Thanks guys!). There we embarked on the great pancake make of 2014. First we made savoury and then sweet pancakes. I wonder if you can guess which variety were more popular!
Sunday 9th March – 5.30pm @ 42 Kendall Avenue
We will be meeting at the home of Mark and Karen Baguley and our thanks go to them for kindly hosting the evening.
This should be a great night – so bring your friends!
There was another superb meeting of the YG group last night. It saw us creating baked potatoes with an amazing array of fillings. However it was the desserts that proved to be our ‘piece de resistance’.
The young people will be sure to tell you that they ate healthily with lots of fruit. However the simple bananas (or in Sarah’s case – persimmon) soon disappeared under a blanket of cream, both the ice and squirty varieties. chocolate sauce and sprinkles. Indeed some of them were quite surprised when they re-discovered the banana underneath!
The only difficulty then was that the sugar rush made it a little difficult for them to concentrate during our spiritual time – something we will learn from when we come to the pancakes that we have arranged for next month! That being said we all struggled to complete an origami flappy bird (very topical!) and that led us to talk about how much help we needed to be a Christian and some of the things that we found difficult about following Jesus today.
The remainder of the photos can be found on our Facebook page.
Sunday 12th January – 5.30pm @ 6 Glenhurst Road
