It would great if you can join us – on Saturday 3rd from 3:30pm – and why not make it more fun by bringing a friend!

Messy Church : A New Start – Saturday 6th January

Christmas is over, the children are back at school and life is ‘back to normal’ after the long break. However, for many people there is still a feeling of ‘A New Start’ in the air.

We’ll be exploring that feeling at Messy Church this Saturday where we’ll be looking at the story of Noah and the new start which those events brought.

To help the story, we encourage young and old alike to bring along a soft toy animal !

We hope to see you at St Catherine’s, on Saturday 6th January, starting at 3:30pm.

Don’t know what a Christingle is or how to make one ? Don’t worry – come along to find out !

As we enter the season of Advent, we’ll also be thinking about those less fortunate than ourselves – particularly those helped by the Children’s Society and we’ll be having a collection for them.  If you’ve picked up a collection box from St Catherine’s, don’t forget to bring it along.

After our celebration, we hope you’ll stay with us for drinks, cakes & mince pies.

Please join us this coming Saturday 2nd December at 3:30 pm.
