Messy Church : Saturday 4th November

November Messy Church Advert - Bigger Barns

Christmas is approaching and all the adverts want us to buy more things.

Does getting more and more ‘stuff’ bring us happiness ? Most of us seem to act as if we’re determined to find out by trying!

What does the Bible have to say about having all this ‘stuff’?  Please join us at Messy Church on Saturday 4th November, where through our normal mixture of Fun, Faith and Food we’ll try to find out.

Messy Harvest : Saturday 7th October

Autumn is well and truly here, and as the old Harvest hymn put it “All is safely gathered in”.

Do we ever think about Harvest ?  Is such a concept out of date in today’s busy on demand 24/7 world ?

Please join us this Saturday – 7th October – for our Messy Harvest.  Through our normal mixture of Fun, Faith and Food we’ll explore Harvest, and try to learn a little more about sharing and being grateful.

As usual we start at 3:30 pm.  During our celebration we’re collecting food for the Churches In Reading Drop In Centre (C.I.R.D.I.C.), so donations of tinned and packet food are welcome.  We also hope you’ll stay for the meal, where we’ll be sharing warming soup.

We hope to see you there !
