Not heard of SHOWSTOPPERS ?  Then read on …

SHOWSTOPPERS is the theme of this year’s week long holiday club at St Catherine’s. It’s for children aged 5 – 11 and lasts 2 hours each morning.

Every morning, through fun, games, video, stories, songs, drama and craft; we’ll be looking at a well known story from the Bible that helps us understand God’s plans for us and his creation. At the end of each morning, different groups of children have the chance to be SHOWSTOPPERS as they perform a drama or song for parents.

Get ready to lift the curtain on the greatest show on earth – God’s great plan for salvation!

Messy Church : What is Pentecost ? – Saturday 3rd June

Many of us are in the middle of a week off, in addition to the Bank Holiday Monday we’ve just had.  But have you thought about what we’re celebrating ?

Some of you may remember the term ‘Whitsun’ Bank Holiday.  Whitsun is an old word and scholars disagree on its exact origin, but these days in most churches, it’s known as Pentecost.

Pentecost falls fifty days after Easter.  But unlike Easter which moves, back in the late 1970’s, the Whitsun bank holiday was ‘fixed’ to the end of May.  This means our Bank Holiday and the day of Christian celebration now normally differ.

But what is Pentecost, and why is it so important that we get a bank holiday ?  Come along to Messy Church on Saturday June 3rd (the day before Pentecost) to find out !

We’re delighted that our friends “Word Puppets” will be joining us for our celebrations.

We hope to see you next Saturday at St Catherine’s, 3:30pm start.

Regards,

The Messy Church Team
