Third Saturday Prayer

As part of our year of prayer, our new prayer initiative Third Saturday Prayer will start Saturday 16th July, from 9.00-9.30am

We will be praying God’s blessing on different areas of church life – for church activities and ministries, as well as praying for the wider community.  This is to encourage everyone to pray together, to build us up as a Body, and pray for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven here in Tilehurst.

Optional:  If you would like to come for tea and toast or coffee and croissant, breakfast will be served from around 8.30pm.

Cornwell Charity Craft Sale

Cornwell Charity Crafts will be at Café Siena on Thurs 30th June & Fri 1st July 10am-2pm, as well as St Catherine’s Summer Fair on Saturday 2nd July Noon-3pm.

They are a group of church members who make handmade gifts to sell for charity.

This year they’re raising money to send Top Notch Trees to Africa.

They’d love it if you popped along to see their goods.

Summer Open Air Services

Throughout July and August, we will be holding the Ten O’clock Sunday Service outdoors (weather permitting). This was very popular when we did this last year.

We will be having a summer series of sermons – “Heroes of the Faith”. The first is ‘Sarah’, where we take a look at Abraham’s wife, and consider what we can learn from her story today.

A short, spoken service of communion will follow, and refreshments will be served in the hall.

Being outdoors, you may wish to bring your own comfortable chair or rug as well as appropriate clothing.
