An opportunity for quiet reflection and prayer

GIVE ALL YOUR WORRIES TO HIM, BECAUSE HE CARES FOR YOU (1 Peter 5:7).

An opportunity for quiet reflection and prayer. Bring a stone, or many stones, and lay them at the foot of the Cross. The cross will be in a quiet place in the church grounds, behind the corner garden. You are invited to sit before the cross on the bench for as long as you like (wrap up warm!) and use the opportunity to pray and give your concerns to God.

Do it once, or come daily. Everyone is welcome. Please respect social distancing.

Easter Trail

Want to do something different for your lockdown walk?  Why not follow our Easter Trail.

There are ten illustrated egg displays between St Michaels & St Catherine’s, each telling part of the Easter Story, along with a simple family friendly activity or question.

When you arrive at St Catherine’s, you can enjoy our Easter Garden, full of home-made flowers from local schools and families.

Palm Sunday – 28th March

CELEBRATION SERVICE WITH COMMUNION IN ST CATHERINE’S CHURCH, 10.00 am

We are delighted to reopen the church for our first Sunday service this year.

We’ll be following strict Covid secure guidelines, so it will be a spoken service with Face-masks and social distancing required.

As part of the celebration, we are inviting you to gift and bring an indoor plant (rather than a palm branch!) to leave on the windowsills of the church permanently – to celebrate both Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem, and our entry into the church building once more!  (Please don’t feel you have to do this, though, it is just an idea!)  This will also mark our commitment to being eco-friendly; plant lifeforms growing within the church!

Please book your place via info@stcatherines-tilehurst.org.uk

St Michael’s to St Catherine’s Easter Trail

Follow the trail of eggs and explore the story of Easter together.

Follow the trail and explore the story of Easter together through a trail of Easter Egg posters from St Michael’s church to St Catherine’s church.

A map will appear soon. The posters will be up from Palm Sunday – March 28th.

At St Catherine’s Church there will be an Easter Garden display. Families and children are encouraged to make flowers to add to the garden.
