AbsolUKE strummed off to a good start

 Last Sunday, our ukulele group, AbsolUKE started for 2021, with Monica as the patient and enthusiastic tutor. 

The "ukuleleists" picked things up super fast, learning three chords in the first lesson! They also learnt the right way to hold a ukulele, how to strum, and some simple percussion. Lots of fun! If you'd like to give ukulele a go, you're more than welcome to join... everyone from beginners to experienced can be part of AbsolUKE.


Blessing of the Backpacks

 Last Sunday, we had our Blessing of the Backpacks. All our young people were invited to bring along their backpack and receive a special blessing as they begin the school year. All our Awesome Leaders and our CHYPS Youth Leader were there to show their support.


Angie and Corban were presented with bibles, as is our tradition for those youth who are beginning secondary school.

Some of our CHYPS youth tried out a new game... 'Stuff Happens'. They had to rank various incidents on the 'Misery Index', which led to lots of debate! Just where on the 'Lane of Pain' would your phone falling into the toilet be? Or how about getting a tooth knocked out, or falling down stairs, or your swimming togs falling off in public?
Although we had to agree to disagree on where things were ranked on the scale, the one thing we can all agree on is that no matter what 'stuff' happens, God loves us and is with us always, giving us strength and helping us to get through it.
