Easter Eggs may have been in the shops for months, but we’re only just about to start Lent – the 40 days before Easter.
What’s Lent about and why am I supposed to be giving something up? Come along to Messy Church on Saturday to find out!
Why not bring a friend to explore our theme of “Giving Up?” through our usual mix of Fun, Faith and Food.
We’d love to see you at St Catherine’s on Saturday from 3:30pm.
Every six years the parish is required to prepare a new electoral roll.
Members previously on the roll must re-apply to be included – inclusion is not automatic. New people may also apply. A person applies by filling out an application for enrolment form which can be found at both churches. Forms must be returned by 17th March 2019.
What is the Electoral Roll and why might you want to join it ? The cartoon below may help.
The PCC of Tilehurst : St Catherine and Calcot : St Birinus regret that the above mentioned Electoral Rock is not available.
There is a Jumble Sale in St Catherine’s Hall on Saturday 16th February opening at 2:00 pm.

It’s time for Messy Church this coming Saturday afternoon. As the shops fill with hearts and valentines, our theme this month is ‘Love God’.
As usual, this is a great chance for the whole family to spend time together with Craft Activities, Stories, Songs and a Hot Meal to finish.
So please join us at St Catherine’s on Saturday 2nd Feb at 3:30pm for Fun, Faith and Food.
In the summer of 2018, the Parish started the ‘Partnership for Missional Church’ programme.
Partnership for Missional Church is a three-year journey that sets churches free to join in with God’s mission in their local community. You can find out more about the programme here.
A web page has been set up as a repository for publicly available documents produced by the parish. It can be found here.
