Shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child

A huge thank you to everyone who brought a shoebox to St Catherine’s for our Shoebox Sunday service. 

We took over 40 shoeboxes to the collection depot on Monday morning.  Along with the on-line donations, they’ll be sending Good News and Great Joy to less fortunate children around the world.

Day of Prayer for Climate Action – Saturday 6th November

We are holding a prayer day for Climate Change on Saturday 6th November from 10am to 4pm with a break for lunch (bring your own) between 1 & 2 pm.

The day will be split into five one-hour sessions, led by different individuals, so you can come or go as you like, and changeovers will be on the hour every hour – please come for as long or as short a time as you have available. 

The sessions will follow the theme of Genesis, and there will be some information sharing, as well as guidance, worship, time for prayerful reflection, and intercession. 

This day takes place half way through the COP26 Climate Change conference, which we have been regularly praying for, for several months. 

Please come and participate – God hears our prayers.

Café Siena – November Nosh

Fridays have become rather busy, and on occasions the waiting time to fulfil orders have taken a little longer than we would of liked.

During November we are going to trial a slimmed down menu to hopefully streamline the whole process.

We will monitor feedback and see how this trial goes. Soup, jackets, daily special, kids meal, and cakes still on offer.

Friday Friends – Restarting

We are pleased to announce that Friday Friends is restarting on Friday 5th November.

Come and share laughter, conversations, prayer and music with guest speakers and tea, coffee and cake.

We offer a mix of light exercise, singing together, table-top games and craft activities in a safe, warm and friendly environment.

Fridays 2 pm – 4 pm in the Hall.  Price £3.50
