Messy Church : 1st October – Farewells

messy-church-oct-16They say “All good things must come to an end” and after 14 years, Denis’s time with us as Vicar is indeed coming to an end as he moves onto pastures new.

Please come and join us at Messy Church on Saturday 1st October to hear Denis reflect upon “Farewells”.  While there’ll be a hint of sadness in the air, we’ll still have our usual mixture of Fun, Faith and Food.

So please join at St Catherine’s on Saturday at 3:30 pm.  Bring a friend !

Being the People of God today – Saturday 17th September

People 1          People 2

This event, led by the new Bishop of Oxford, aims to help us explore what it means to be God’s people today.   It will address such questions as:-

  • How can we, as church gathered and church dispersed, respond to the world’s hunger for justice, relationship and love?
  • Where do we see God at work?
  • How do we pay attention to it?
  • How can we support one another to respond?

The organisers’ vision is “to gather 200 people from across the Berkshire Archdeaconry who have:

  • a passion for the gospel
  • a longing to see change – in both world and church
  • a commitment to struggle for it

Might you be one of those “200 people”? If so, please see the attached flyer (click on the images above) and go to:
