Pilgrim Course

In the next few weeks, we’re planning to start running the first in a potential series of courses called “Pilgrim”.

Pilgrim is a major teaching and discipleship resource from the Church of England. It aims to help every local church create a place where people can explore the Christian faith together and see how it can be lived out each day.

The course is both for people who are not yet Christians but are open to finding out more and also for people who want a refresher course in their faith.

Pilgrim takes a different approach to other Christian programmes. It approaches the great issues of faith not through persuasion and listening to someone just talking, but through participation in a pattern of contemplation and discussion with a group of fellow travellers.

The first course is 6 sessions based on the questions asked in the Baptism service. They are :-

  • Do you turn to Christ ?
  • Do you believe and trust in God the Father ?
  • Do you believe in his Son Jesus Christ ?
  • Do you believe in the Holy Spirit ?
  • Do you repent your sins ?
  • Do you renounce evil ?

Please contact us if you’d like more details.

Messy Church – Saturday 6th October

As the autumn colours appear in the trees, it is time to celebrate Harvest.

While few of us do any real harvesting these days, it is still a good time to stop and give thanks for what we’ve got, and to help others who have less.

Accordingly we invite you to bring donations of food for the charity ‘Readifood’ – Reading’s food bank.

We’ll start our time together with lots of fun craft and activities linked to our Bible story – The feeding of the 5,000.

Then we’ll celebrate, singing songs, hearing the Bible story and praying together.  We’ll also hear how we can help others over Christmas through ‘Operation Shoebox’.

This should be a great opportunity for all the family to spend time exploring these themes together.

Please join us at St Catherine’s on Saturday 6th at 3:30pm.  Why not invite a friend.
