ALL THROUGH HOLY WEEK (28th March – 4th April)

EASTER TRAIL from St Michael’s Church to St Catherine’s (more details here), all the family can discover the Easter story as they hunt for (pictures of) Easter eggs.

VISIT OUR EASTER GARDEN.  Pre-school and school children are making crafted flowers to add to the garden – and you are invited to do the same!

CAST YOUR BURDENS ON TO HIM, FOR HE CARES FOR YOU (1 Peter 5:7).  An opportunity for quiet reflection and prayer.  Bring a stone, or many stones, and lay them at the foot of the Cross.  The cross will be in a quiet place in the church grounds, behind the corner garden.  You are invited to sit before the cross on the bench for as long as you like (wrap up warm!) and use the opportunity to pray and give your concerns to God.  Do it once, or come daily.  Everyone is welcome.  Please respect social distancing.


10.00 am each week day morning – join us for MORNING WORSHIP.

7.00 pm – Listen to the EASTER STORY told by members of St Catherine’s church, with time to pause for prayer.

PALM SUNDAY : 28th March

10.00 am – CELEBRATION SERVICE WITH COMMUNION IN CHURCH Please book your place.  As part of the celebration, we are inviting you to gift and bring an indoor plant (rather than a palm branch!) to leave on the windowsills of the church permanently – to celebrate both Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, and our entry into the church building once more!  (Please don’t feel you have to do this, though, it is just an idea!)  This will also mark our commitment to being eco-friendly; plant lifeforms growing within the church!

GOOD FRIDAY : 2nd April

10.00 am – ON-LINE WORSHIP for all ages to share the wonder of the cross, and the Easter story.

3.00-3.45 pm – REFLECTIONS ON THE CROSS IN CHURCH.  Gill will lead a guided meditation focussing on different aspects of the crucifixion.  Please book your place.


6.00 am – On-line SUNRISE SERVICE from Gill’s garden to celebrate the resurrection.

10.00 am – On-line EASTER CELEBRATION


All services in church will follow strict Covid-secure guidelines – thus numbers may be limited to keep social distancing. To book your place, email us on info@stcatherines-tilehurst.org.uk
