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 !
Here’s a brief glimpse of the fun that nearly 70 children, helped by 50 teenage and adult helpers, had at “Rocky’s Plaice”‘ – this year’s Holiday Club.
You are invited to a special Holiday Club opening service at St Catherine’s on Sunday 12th August, starting at 10:30am. You’ll be able to see what our children will be doing during the week ahead.
This service replaces the normal 9:30am Sunday service.
Due to our annual Holiday Club, St Catherine’s Café will be closed on Thursday 16th & Friday 17th August.
We thank you for your understanding and patience. We will reopen as normal on Thursday 23rd August.
Preparations for Rocky’s Plaice – this year’s Holiday Club – have started!
On Monday of the week before the club started, we collected all the cooking ingredients, which have very generously been donated by Asda Tilehurst.

If you haven’t already got your registration form, please pick one up from St Catherine’s church, or contact us via email.
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!
