Join us on the 1st Wednesday of every month (except January 1st) for an hour of “chicken soup for the soul”, bringing together contemporary life and ancient wisdom.

We watch a short reflective video (Rob Bell—‘Nooma’), hold ten minutes silence, pause to feedback if appropriate, then join in the ancient Christian monastic tradition of reading poetry and psalms to end the day—the service of “Compline”.

A couple of us keep meeting on dog walks... and others say they wish they had a dog to walk... so we thought we'd get together for a Pack Walk.. You don't have to have a dog to join us -- all welcome! (Dress for the weather)

We'll meet outside Pathfinder Primary School, ready to leave at 10.30am.

Let us know if you have any good route suggestions too!

We had such a good time at the first one, we're going to try to do this monthly.... where possible on the 2nd Sunday (but there were a few things in the diary already...) see the dates listed below. NOTE: In April, why not join the 5folds way too (bit.ly/5foldsway2020)

See the comments for the risk assessment. PATHFINDER CHURCH NORTHSTOWE ACCEPT NO LIABILY: please supervise your own dogs and children, and join at your own risk.

Several of us have noticed the growing litter problem. Not wanting to let the developers off the hook for their industrial waste, we're planning a monthly litter pick to (a) clear up so this is a nicer place for us all (b) collect evidence of how much industrail waste they are leaving and (c) have a good laugh getting to know each other. We're drawing on the support of Pathfinder Church Northstowe and Longstanton Parish Council and as many The Northstowe Pioneers as possible! **Please let us know if you are coming as we need to get all the right paperwork signed.** Plan is to repeat monthly, doing a different part of Northstowe each time. Then eat cake back at Pathfinder School! DRESS FOR THE WEATHER: adults are responsible for the children they bring.

During the afternoon of the first Sunday of every month, we head out into Northstowe looking, listening, exploring this ever-changing new place. We pause periodically as we walk to silently pray and reflect, before walking on.
Dress for the weather (if very wet we have a labyrithin inside that we can walk instead!). Normally, we return to school for hot drinks but on Dec 1st, we'll head down the The Green for mulled wine and mince pies at the Switch On

Each month we host a Breakfast Gathering in Pathfinder Primary School Hall where people can come together to eat, laught. meet new neightbous, and hang out together, regardless of what they beleive. There will be various acitvities to opt into, some faith-based, others not. And an optional short spoken liturigcal service for those who want to participate. But, at the heart of this, is a community gathering to eat together!

This weekend, we have fresh bread rolls, bacon, and cereal at our Monthly Breakfast Gathering (10.30am)... and our fabulous students have prepared activities to give us a gentle introduction to Candlemas. We'll be celebrating a special candlemas communion in the side chapel too.
