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!

Joint Service at Cornwell – Sunday 9th July

Sunday 9th July is a joint service at the Cornwell Centre where we’ll join members of Cornwell Community Church.

In response to previous feedback, the service will be at the normal Cornwell time of 10.30 for 11.00 am. So come early for cake and real coffee.

Another reason for the later start is that we’ll finish with a picnic outside (weather permitting).  We’re not allowed to take anything outside the Cornwell Centre (chairs, tables, cutlery, crockery etc.) so bring what you’ll need to eat and sit on (we’ll continue to provide cake and drinks).

There will only be the 8:00am service at St Catherine’s on that Sunday, so we hope that you can join us, even if you can’t make the picnic.

Messy Church : What is Baptism ? – Saturday 1st July

The last of our “What is ?” Messy Church series, and the last before the summer break, we hope that you can join us on Saturday 1st July for our normal mix of Fun, Faith and Food.

This time we’re thinking about “What is Baptism ?”  Why are we baptised ? Was Jesus baptised ? Is it different from Christening ?  Come along to St Catherine’s at 3:30pm on Saturday 1st July to find out.
