Tea at the Five

Hello all,

Sorry that I haven’t sent this out earlier but unfortunately it completely flew out of my mid earlier this week.
Each month we are down to do the tea at the Five (on the 4th Sunday of the month I believe). It would be great if some of you would be willing to simply provide some food for it. The older Youth will be able to sort out serving…etc but we would appreciate any food that could be supplied.
Below is a list of items that would be needed. Although if there is something specific that you would like to bring not mentioned please do give me a shout.
If you are able to help please do email me back. If you are not planning on coming to the Five you could still drop the food off in the morning (as long as you let me know).
Thanks very much for all your help
Food Items:
40 Small Triangle sandwiches (one loaf) – HAM (including some un-buttered)
40 Small Triangle sandwiches (one loaf) – Cheese
40 Small Triangle sandwiches (one loaf) – Strawberry Jam
24 packets of crisps (or equivalent in large bags)
40 Small Sausage Rolls
Bunch of bananas
Bag of apples
Net of satsumas


Prayer Meetings & Term cards – Email sent 10th January

Good Morning all,

I hope you are keeping well.
As hopefully you know we very much see this work as a partnership between youth workers and parents wanting to work together to help you children to grow up to know, love and trust Jesus for themselves. With that in mind we want to have an opportunity to regularly pray for them as a cooperate whole.
And to really aid this partnership what we would love is if one of you would be prepared to act as a parent prayer coordinator. Which simply means be willing to organise the meetings and let people know when they are happening. In the past we have done termly evening prayer meetings, however this could be completely changed, we felt as a youth team that perhaps a shorter monthly meeting might be better on say a Sunday afternoon. But all such details can be discussed.
We would still be able to provide the main input into these meetings, so really the task is one of organisation and enthusiasm to get people to come and pray.
If that is something that you would like to do then please do come and chat to me as we do really want to raise our prayerfulness for our young people.
To try and cut down on postage we will hand out hard copies of the term card this week and then send any that are left over.
Please remember to keep checking the website, I copy all these emails onto the website (as long as they are fine for public viewing) so if you lose this then please check under the ‘News’ category on there. Also there is the latest blog entry up for your perusal which can be found here.
Thanks very much

Email sent out 6th January

Good afternoon all,

This is hopefully the first of many emails that you will receive from me about the youth work taking place at St. Margaret’s. These emails will be a mixture of practical information but also hopefully giving you an insight into what we have been doing at Rooted allowing you to carry on the discussion with your children and encourage them in their learning.
These emails then will in effect take the place of the parents booklet that we use to produce for you.
Before I push onto immediate matters can I draw your attention to our new website:
Here you will find all the info that you might need, so if you veer want to check anything it should all be on there.
I will also be writing a blog for both the youth and parents which I hope will be a useful resource.
If you also feel so inclined you can also follow us on Twitter at:
And check out our Facebook page: although please note we will not be pushing the Facebook page especially heavily amongst our younger youth as members shouldn’t be on Facebook under the age of 13.
But onto this week…
Please note that there is NO Rooted Tuesday this week. We will be starting on TUESDAY 14th January at 19:00 at the usual location.
Rooted Sunday will meet this Sunday (12th January). We will be encouraging all of the older youth to attend the Five service and then join together afterwards for food and Bible study. We hope to finish approximately by 21:00 although we may still need to iron out timings slightly.
Also some of you may remember that we said there would be a Rooted Prayer meeting on 27th January. This will NO LONGER be taking place then due to a PCC meeting. Although I will get back to you shortly with a new date.
Finally look out later this week for the term plan.
Thank you so much for your continued partnership in this valuable work.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions.
In Christ,
