Messy Church – Saturday 6th October

As the autumn colours appear in the trees, it is time to celebrate Harvest.

While few of us do any real harvesting these days, it is still a good time to stop and give thanks for what we’ve got, and to help others who have less.

Accordingly we invite you to bring donations of food for the charity ‘Readifood’ – Reading’s food bank.

We’ll start our time together with lots of fun craft and activities linked to our Bible story – The feeding of the 5,000.

Then we’ll celebrate, singing songs, hearing the Bible story and praying together.  We’ll also hear how we can help others over Christmas through ‘Operation Shoebox’.

This should be a great opportunity for all the family to spend time exploring these themes together.

Please join us at St Catherine’s on Saturday 6th at 3:30pm.  Why not invite a friend.

Messy Church – Saturday 1st September

After the summer break for Holiday Club, Messy Church resumes its usual routine of meeting on the first Saturday of month.  And that’s sooner than you might think !  It’s this Saturday – the 1st of September.

Many of the children will have joined us for our Holiday Club, and we’re keeping the holiday club fun going with this week’s theme – “Chip Shop Church”.

However, unlike Holiday Club, we want the whole family to come along and join in the mixture of Fun, Faith and Food, while finding out a bit more about what it means to be Church.

Keeping with the Chip Shop theme, our hot meal will be Fish Fingers (vegan option available)

We’d love to see you at St Catherine’s, this Saturday, starting at 3:30pm for Messy Church !

Also, below, is our Messy Church calendar for the whole year.  Also, look out for details on St Catherine’s new Sunday afternoon Family service coming soon !
