  • Daily Thought: (Pre-recorded; Approx 4pm Mon-Friday)

Livestreaming Service Info : 21st & 22nd March

A message from Gill

This Saturday (March 21st) is what we are going to call call “Saturday Funday” – so we are not livestreaming Morning Prayer at Home at 10.00 am (feel free to say it alone!) – but a video of Phil and I playing “Would I lie to you?” – some light relief we hope!  Feedback always appreciated!

Do join us for the livestream tomorrow, Sunday 22nd March, of a sermon based on John 9 at 10.00 am.

Also, if you’d like to be part of the first livestream CofE communion service led by Archbishop Justine Welby, you can join him on a local radio station, or on the CofE website at 9.00am.

And don’t forget that tomorrow, which is Mothering Sunday, is also a National Day of Prayer – we are all invited to light a candle and put it in our front window at 7.00 pm.

God bless us all – and keep praising Jesus!

Gill

Church Activities Coronavirus

St Catherine of Siena Parish Church, Tilehurst

In light of the latest guidance from the government and the Church of England, our usual pattern of Sunday services and other midweek gatherings must be put on hold with immediate effect.  This affects all areas of our church life.

Instead we are exploring how to be a different kind of church, and how to both keep in contact and provide practical help.

Accordingly we encourage you to :-

  • Join our live-streamed video services via our Facebook page .  We have a live-streamed Sunday morning service as well as a weekday ‘At Home’ Morning Prayer  service.  All start at 10am.  Please download a Morning Prayer service booklet from here.
  • Watch our other daily videos on our Facebook page or on our website here.
  • Keep in contact via email, social media or telephone with each other.  If you are not already in one of our ‘Virtual Groups’ and wish to be included, please email us.

Please refer to this page for Practical Help if you are ill or isolated.

Please refer to this page for Spiritual Help during this time.


Since initial publication, our Coronavirus pages have been updated many times.  The latest version of this page may be viewed here.

Dwelling Well : Lent Course 2020

Please join us for our Lent Course entitled ‘Dwelling Well’, which will run from 27 February – 5 April.

Be refreshed in your faith and come along on Thursdays at 3.15 pm or Sundays at 7.00 pm in the church. We will explore the spiritual disciplines of listening, noticing, hospitality, announcing the kingdom, seeking God’s way together and engaging with the world.

The sessions will be light and interactive, and hopefully help us all to put our faith into practice!

Lent will begin with Holy Communion in the church at 8.00pm on Ash Wednesday, 26 February.
