Hi, I’m Luke and I am the Youth Work Team Leader at Oadby Baptist Church. Read below to find out what I have been up to recently. You will also find my contact details below if you need to get in touch with me.

We have moved in! We moved in earlier this month when all the carpets were done, we had a moving van, we have a bed, sofa and TV and internet! It’s so good to have a home that is liveable and somewhere that is ours. We are missing a few things but Ikea will be bringing those things round next weekend then we will have something to eat off of!
It would be great to have people round because Abi is itching to cook for people who like green things!

Friday Night Youth went away for the weekend this month to the Harby Christian Centre in Melton Mowbray. We had a great time, playing lots of sports, having times of worship and some really good group discussions about faith. There were over 20 young people that came along and quite a few said that they wanted to take their faith further and come to other groups and to Soul Survivor which is really encouraging to hear from the young people.

We got together as RYP team and put a day aside to spend some time studying the Bible. We read through Zechariah and we tried to understand the visions and what they meant. I had a little bit of a head start as that’s what we have been looking at on Sunday mornings but don’t tell the RYP team that!

The WKND is coming up this month. We have 3 young people signed up to it already from OBC and I hope to get a few more. I will let you know how we get on next month.

September Prayer Flyer

School has started again, the summer life is over and winter is coming. We are back to the usual routines and no more holidays, for a while anyway.

This summer has been a fun one though doing lots of things with the young people. Playing rounders at Coombe Park, playing board games at Church, having a Fifa tournament and even playing golf! The summer provides a chance for me to spend more time with the young people outside of the normal groups and see how they are getting on and what their plans are for the coming year and beyond.

All the normal groups at OBC and the schools are starting back this week and we hope to see the same faces and new ones at the school groups during this new system of the schools in Oadby.

Please pray this month for the young people starting something new, whether that be new school, university, or anything. Keep praying for the young people and their faith because God is doing some amazing things in their lives!

May Prayer Flyer

The weather has started to get warmer! Summer is coming! I feel that the better weather makes the young people happier but with summer on its way it means that their exams are near… Exams can be a really stressful time for the young people. They can have important exams every day of the week on some weeks. Please remember the young people in your prayers during this stressful time.

Over Easter Abi and I managed to go to Bolton to see her family which was really rewarding. Spending Easter Monday at Church and hearing 3 sermons was inspiring and good to be a part of.

Jake and I have started a running a 6 week Self Esteem course in Gartree High School working with 10 students. We try and help them with their self-esteem which has gone really well so far and Jake and I work well as a team which is good!

Mine and Abi’s house is looking better as the days go on! The house is almost plastered and it will soon be time for painting which we can’t wait for. Thank you for all your support and prayers during this time for us!

There is a RYP Fundraiser coming up, it is on the Youth Board downstairs. You can take part in the triathlon, come and bring your families to the fun day and fun swim or you can sponsor me to do it for you! Thank you for all your support this month!
