PILOTS Upgrade and FOFA
at Saint Columba URC Liverpool

Before the pandemic Pilots at St Columba had been running faithfully on a Wednesday evening for over 10 years. It has been such a joy and so many children have learnt, prayed and served all they could with the worldwide church of Jesus Christ.

It is now time for a little change ......... we will move from a Wednesday to a Tuesday and I am delighted that Catherine and Jules will now join the team. This is the plan and we ask you to pray for children to attend and leaders to be encouraged.

The first Tuesday in the month at 7.30 pm till 9 pm we will have Pilots for older children 10 and over - hopefully those Pilots we had before lockdown will return and we will focus more on youth activities and enjoy Domino’s pizza!

The last Tuesday in the month we will run Families on Faith Adventures which is a Pilots spin created by the URC. It will run from 6pm to 7.30pm and open to children from 5-9 years old.

If you would like to be involved or would like to invite a young person that lives near you do let one of the team know.

What is Pilots Upgrade?

Pilots UPGRADE is a new youth venture to Saint Columba URC that is starting monthly (first Tuesday of the month) at 7.30pm. It welcomes boys and girls from the age of 11 years plus and will help bring new life into church as well as being a lot of fun for the young people.

Pilots Upgrade will be held on a Tuesday evening at Saint Columba URC. A typical evening can include a variety of activities; games, crafts, painting, singing, cooking, prayer, worship and stories.

If you would like to join Pilots UPGRADE then why not pop in on a Tuesday evening from 7:30pm.

If you would like to ask a question regarding Pilots then please don't hesitate to pop in to see one of our leaders on a Tuesday evening or maybe just email us directly.
