Messy Church – Sat 5th January

It’s a new year, and for many an attempt to start something afresh.  At Messy Church this month we look at the story of Zacchaeus – a corrupt state official who started his life afresh after meeting Jesus.

Please join us on Saturday 5th Jan at 3:30pm for our usual mix of craft, activities, stories and songs, all with a hot meal to finish.

Messy Church : Saturday 1st December

As Advent approaches, we invite you to join us to #FollowTheStar this Christmas.

We start this coming Saturday (1st Dec) at Messy Church.    Through our usual mixture of Fun, Faith and Food we’ll be thinking about how God told us that Christmas was coming.

So please join us this Saturday – December 1st at 3:30pm for craft & puzzle activities, stories, songs and a hot meal to finish.

Shoebox Sunday

A big thank you to everyone who has contributed a shoebox to Operation Christmas Child.

Through Operation Christmas Child, we send shoeboxes packed with toys and supplies to needy children around the world to bring some joy and love at Christmas to children in the poorest parts of the world who might otherwise get nothing.

We collected 61 boxes this morning, which will be combined with the boxes from Cornwell and delivered to the collection point on Monday.

Messy Church : Sat 3rd November – Remembrance

As we approach the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, it is only natural that our theme for this Saturday’s Messy Church be Remembrance.

But the solemnity of the occasion doesn’t mean we can’t have a little fun as we explore our theme, producing poppies and thinking about peace.  This should be a great opportunity for all the family to spend time together exploring these themes.

Our hot meal is Jacket Potatoes and Beans, with Cake and Custard for dessert.

So please join us this Saturday – November 3rd at 3:30pm – for our usual mix of Fun, Faith and Food.

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.
