Messy Church : A New Start – Saturday 6th January

Christmas is over, the children are back at school and life is ‘back to normal’ after the long break. However, for many people there is still a feeling of ‘A New Start’ in the air.

We’ll be exploring that feeling at Messy Church this Saturday where we’ll be looking at the story of Noah and the new start which those events brought.

To help the story, we encourage young and old alike to bring along a soft toy animal !

We hope to see you at St Catherine’s, on Saturday 6th January, starting at 3:30pm.

Joint Service at Cornwell – Sunday 10th December

Sunday 10th December is a joint service at the Cornwell Centre where we’ll join members of Cornwell Community Church.

Rev Christine Bainbridge will be leading a communion service.

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.

Other services in the parish that day are an 8am service at St Catherine’s and the Carols in Calcot service in the afternoon.  We hope to see you at one or more of these services.

Messy Christingle – Saturday 2nd December

This coming Saturday, we are combining our normal Messy Church with our ever popular Christingle service.  We’ll be making Christingles together as part of our normal “Fun, Faith and Food”.

Don’t know what a Christingle is or how to make one ? Don’t worry – come along to find out !

As we enter the season of Advent, we’ll also be thinking about those less fortunate than ourselves – particularly those helped by the Children’s Society and we’ll be having a collection for them.  If you’ve picked up a collection box from St Catherine’s, don’t forget to bring it along.

After our celebration, we hope you’ll stay with us for drinks, cakes & mince pies.

Please join us this coming Saturday 2nd December at 3:30 pm.
