Messy Church – Saturday 6th April : Easter

The Easter School holidays are about to start.  But what is Easter all about?

We know it’s more than just chocolate and bunnies, but why do Christians consider Easter far more important than Christmas?

Why not join us at Messy Church this coming Saturday to help us think about the Easter message through our usual mix of fun, faith and food.  They’ll be plenty of craft activities to help us explore the Easter story and we’d love you to stay and eat with us – fish fingers this week!

We hope to see you at St Catherine’s this Saturday (April 6th) at 3:30pm.
