Messy Church : What is Love? – Saturday 4th February

messy-church-feb-17With Valentines day coming, many of us ask “What is Love?”  It’s a big question that we spend a lot of our life thinking about.  Naturally, the Christian faith has a lot to say about it.

Through our normal mix of Fun, Faith and Food, we’ll explore just a few of the things that the Bible says and in particular how Jesus explained it to his followers through one of his most famous parables.

Please join us at St. Catherine’s on Saturday 4th February at 3:30pm.  Bring a Friend.

messy-church-jan-17

How are your New Year’s resolutions going ?  Whether you’ve still going strong, struggling already, or never bothered in the first place, we all know that the New Year is a time to think about the year ahead and what changes we might want to make.

The theme for Messy Church this coming Saturday is “New Beginnings”.  The ability to start afresh with God is a central theme of the Christian message.  Come with us as we explore that theme together through our normal mix of Fun, Faith and Food.

We hope you can join us on Saturday 7th at 3:30pm at St Catherine’s.  Bring a friend !
