Missed “Backpackers” and wondered what it was all about?  Came and want to relive some of the fun ?

Here’s a glimpse of the fun that 80 children, helped by over 50 teenage and adult helpers, had at “Backpackers”‘ – this year’s Holiday Club.

Holiday Club Recap

As our week long Holiday Club draws to a close, you are all invited to see a recap of the weeks fun and games today (Friday 16th) at 12noon.

Regardless of whether you’ve ordered the subsequent Fish & Chip meal or not, please stay for a while to get a flavour of what our children have been up to through video, song, story & games.

More photos of what we’ve been up to can be see on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/St.Catherines.Tilehurst

Please be aware that because of this event, the Café is closed and Friday Friends returns next week.

Messy Church : Jesus goes Backpacking – Saturday 6th July

This month’s Messy Church is exploring our Holiday Club theme of Backpacking !

At this year’s Holiday Club, we will be thinking about travelling around Europe backpacking.  Jesus also travelled all around the counties near where he lived – although we don’t think he had a rucksack !

At Messy Church this Saturday, through our usual fun mix of crafts, activities, songs & a story, we’ll be finding out some of what Jesus got up to and why he travelled so much.

Hope to see you on Saturday 6th July at 3:30pm.  Bring a friend !

P.S.  Our Holiday Club takes place in August.  Click here for more details.

New Service – 11am

We’re please to announce our new, informal service for the whole family, from Sunday 9th June at 11am.

As previously announced, the congregation from Cornwell Community Church are joining us to start this new service.

It’ll be the same time as Cornwell (11.00 am), with the same style of service (very informal), the same group of people (all ages, with several young people in our music group), the same great music and the same refreshments (fresh coffee and cakes).

As before we aim to make our service accessible for everyone and we are accepting and understanding of people with special needs.

We hope to see you there !

Messy Church – Saturday 4th May

It might be a Bank Holiday weekend – but that doesn’t stop Messy Church!

We seek to provide a space where the whole family can spend quality time together to share in Fun, Faith and Food, with craft activities, stories, songs and a shared meal together to finish.

We hope that you can join us at St Catherine’s this Saturday (May 4th) at 3:30pm.  Bring a friend !
