This Week – Among Us!

Hi Everyone

This is what is happening with the youth work at Sheet Church this week. Hope to see you there!

Among Us – 15/05/21

Starts: 16:00
Ends: 17:30
Location: Online (Message me for details)

Details
As we aren’t meeting in person for SMART this weekend we are going to spend some time playing Among Us. If you haven’t played before it works a lot like the game mafia that we have played at SMART where there is an imposter and we have to guess who it is but it could be any of us! Among Us is a free app for Android, iOS and if you have Xbox Game Pass (you can also buy it for PC or game consoles but obviously that costs money) so don’t worry if you haven’t played before come along and join in anyway! The link for the zoom call we will be in while playing along with the room codes will be on our discord server and if you have any issues getting setup let me know and I look forward to seeing you then!

And that’s it for this week as always if you have any questions let me know and I look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi Everyone

We have our next session of SMART in person this week (Saturday 9th May 17:00 – 19:00) and for this one (as you might have guessed from the title of the post) we are going to do something a bit different!

We are going to have series of challenges and quiz to see who is the reigning champion of SMART with a prize for the winner!

How do you join in with this magnificent extravagance you ask? Simple like with all our face to face youth work you just need to book yourself in here – www.sheet.church/youthbooking and then show up at Cloncaird with a mask (as we will be indoors) on the day to join in!

If you have any questions about this let me know and look forward to seeing you Saturday as we crown the champion of SMART!!!

SMART In Person Returns This Saturday!!!

Hi Everyone

Exciting news this Saturday (24th) from 17:00 – 19:00 we are going to have a session of SMART at Cloncaird! (I know what a weird idea!) Obviously, it’s going to be a bit different from a usual SMART though to keep everyone safe so here is what you need to know:

0 – Book yourself in for the session

While we don’t have quite the same number limitations with meeting as we have done in the past we still need you to book in beforehand so we have a rough idea of numbers and have list of attendees for track and track you can do that here – sheet.church/youthbooking

1 – We will start by meeting in the back garden

While we can and will (see further down this message) spend some time indoors we are going to start by playing some games outside so when you arrive come and join us in the back garden by going through the gate on the right-hand side of the house.

2 – We will be outside

We are going to start off playing games outside. The weather looks good this Saturday but just make sure you are wearing clothes you are happy to run around outside in.

3 – But we will also be inside

We are now able to meet inside as well as long as we follow social distancing guidelines, this means that you will need to bring a mask (which will need to be worn indoors) with you and ideally some of your own hand sanitiser as well. (We will have some if you don’t have any but it saves a massive queue if you bring your own.)  While we will be indoors like at your schools we will have windows and doors open for ventilation so bear that in mind. Also we still won’t have great access to a toilet even though we are indoors so make sure you go before you arrive!

4 – We still can’t eat together

This won’t come as surprise to any of you but we can’t do a shared meal together still so we aren’t going to have a time to eat food like we normally do at a SMART session so don’t bring any  food with you.

5 – That’s all you need to know

That should be everything you need to know about this coming session of SMART if you have any questions at all about any of it please don’t hesitate to ask and I can’t wait to see you all on Saturday for the first face to face session of SMART at Cloncarid in over a year!

End Of Easter Picnic

Hi Everyone

As it’s coming up to the end of the Easter holidays we are going to have another picnic together. This time we are meeting on the cricket pitch at the heath for a change of scenery and to make it easier for people who can’t drive.

It will be really good to see you all so come along to join us and hang and talk more about what this term is going to look like for youth work moving forward and what you would like to get out of it.

As before you will need to book in for this event which you can do at – sheet.church/youthbooking

If you have any questions about this let me know and look forward to seeing you all on Friday!

God Bless

Youth Picnic This Saturday!!!

Hey Everyone

With the changes in lockdown restrictions, we are able to meet face to face again! So we are going to celebrate by having a picnic together on Saturday at Cloncaird! Here is what you know if you want to join us!

When? Saturday 3rd April 13:00 – 14:30

Where? Cloncaird, in the top garden please access it using the gate to the right of the house rather than going through the house itself (if unsure about any of this message me for directions)

Do I need to book? Why yes you do! While under lockdown restrictions all of our face to face youth work sessions will have to be booked in beforehand you can do it at this new system we have set up here – http://www.sheet.church/youthbooking

Do we still have to socially distance? Yes we do so bear that in mind you will need your own picnic blanket and food etc no sharing food with others I’m afraid.

Anything else I need to bring? Only yourselves, food, something to sit on and clothing appropriate for the weather. (It looks like it should be quite nice on Saturday but there’s no going inside so bear that in mind. Also given that maybe make sure you have been to the toilet recently before coming!)

I think that’s all you need to know any questions let me know and I can’t wait to see you all actually in person again on Saturday!!! I am excited 😀

God Bless

Online Escape Room Today!

Hi Everyone

Something went wrong with our email system this week so not all of you will know this but today at 16:00 we are doing an online escape room!

This time we are going to work together to help the Rising Seas chapel in Carbonsville (can you guess the theme for this escape room?) So come and join us this Saturday as we work out how we can all escape together! All you need is yourself and maybe some pen and paper to make notes on. Joining info will be on the Discord server (or message me) and it’s going to be a lot of fun!

This weekend we are going to do something a bit different and have a Bake Off!

How’s this going to work online you might ask. Well firstly the judges obviously won’t be able to taste the cakes you make (so make whatever cake you want!) Instead it will be a cake decoration competition based around the theme of – "Out Of This World"

We will all meet online in Zoom first to register and discuss timings before going off to make the cake, have a snack (provided by us assuming you book using a snack ticket) and then carry out the decorating. Before the judging takes place for which there will be a prize!

We are going to ask you if possible to book in for this one so we have an idea of numbers and if you would like a snack provided by us you need to book in by Tuesday evening at the latest (so we make sure it’s safely quarantined before delivery.) If you aren’t sure you can come yet that is absolutely fine just book using one of the general admission tickets and you can book right up until it starts!

You can book using the Eventbrite page here –

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/online-bake-off-tickets-142404841715

I’m really looking forward to this it’s going to be a bit different from usual but a fun competition if you any questions about please don’t hesitate to get in touch and I will see you all on Saturday!

SMART This Week

Hi Everyone

I’m aware it got left off from the weekly email this week but just to remind you that we do have another session of SMART this Saturday (20th) (I might of accidentally but the date for the session as 20/02/2020 which meant it didn’t show up…)

As it’s just started this week are going to be looking at Lent and what that might mean for us in this year where the idea of giving something up doesn’t seem quite the same.

So join us from 17:00 – 18:30 online as we play games together and think about this. (The joining information will be in the Discord server.)

God Bless

Youth Led Service Reminder

Hi Everyone

Just a quick reminder that this week are making the service this Sunday and would love to get as many of you as possible involved. You can find out the details here but essentially we would love you to film yourself quickly answering some questions that we will use as part of the service on Sunday. Also if you want to get involved with the music you can find out more about that here.

Remember the deadline for all this stuff is Friday (19th) evening after that it’s too late and we won’t be able to use it so make sure it’s sent by then!

Any questions let me know and excited to see what everyone does for this Sunday!

God Bless

Music For Feb Youth Led Service

Hi Everyone

Sorry for all the messages today (this should be the final one!) But wanted to get this one out there ASAP for anyone who wants to join in with the singing or playing an instrument for the service on Sunday.

We are only recording one new song this time (we are going to re-use some of the ones we recorded before) and the new one we are recording is – Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone.

If you haven’t sung or played before for one of these online services and would like to here is how it works.

  1. Download the backing track either the one with a metronome on it or the one without. (Up to you whichever you find easier.)
  2. Record/film yourself singing/playing along with. Make sure to wear headphones so we can’t hear the backing track ideally film in landscape and don’t worry about it being perfect (we are going for more of a live feel here.) Use whatever equipment you have to access to (using a phone is fine) but make sure the sound quality is okay (people notice bad sound way more than bad visuals.) If you record the video and audio separately please include a clap at the beginning that’s obviously visible and audible to help me sync up the two file. (Don’t worry I will edit it out.) Musical Note – If you are an instrumentalist record yourself from the beginning of the track (to make it easier to sync everything up) but please only come in with your instrument at the start of the second verse so we have a quieter start. If you are a singer obviously start singing when the singing starts on the track.
  3. Upload it to the dropbox folder here by Friday evening (19th) any later than that and we won’t have time to include it in the service and use it.

If you have any technical issues with any of it let me know and I will try and help out as well though obviously the sooner you ask more the more chance is we can do something to fix it. I hope that all makes sense if you have questions about it please let me know and I look forward to seeing what you guys contribute. 😀

God Bless

Youth Led Service Upload Update

Hi Everyone

As you know we are doing something different for our youth-led service this week (you can find out more here) however the link I sent round originally to upload things was wrong sorry about that!

This is the link you will have to use for uploading:

https://www.dropbox.com/request/cge9pVtyDQbd4feCXCDP

Sorry for any confusion and please do get involved with sharing something for this Sunday the more people the better!

Youth Led Service (21st February)

Update – The Link given below is incorrect please use the following link – https://www.dropbox.com/request/cge9pVtyDQbd4feCXCDP

Hi Everyone

A week on Sunday we have our next Youth-Led Service (21st), the theme for this one is Encouraging One Another so rather than just having one person do that talk I thought we would do something a bit different. What I would love for you to do is to film a short video of yourself answering all or some of the questions below and then we will stitch them together and we can share encouragement and advice to the church together.

I would love for you to do this even if you feel like you don’t have much to say (I promise you, you do.) If being on camera yourself is a problem feel free to upload audio instead and we can use that instead. (If you do this and are happy to send a picture of yourself as well that will help but no worries if not.) Lastly don’t worry about saying lots just keep it simple and please can you do a separate file for each question (that will make the edit so much easier!)

The questions themselves are:

  • How have people (either from church/youth work or outside of it) encouraged and helped you in the last year?
  • How does your faith help and encourage you?
  • What you would say to the rest of the church to encourage them?

As I say if you aren’t sure what to say for some of the questions that’s okay just record answers to the ones you are happy to answer and once you have them recorded you can upload them to me using this link:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/luf5iml9b0y38qw/AACSuF6GI4vKc8TIyIDhlqRla?dl=0 (see new link above)

Lastly can I please have these by Friday evening (19th) so I can get them edited together in time.

I hope that all makes sense if something doesn’t let me know and please please do give this a go even if you aren’t sure it would amazing to hear from as many people as possible!

God Bless

David Loveless
