The December / January double issue of RG31 – our Parish Magazine – is now available on-line here, or click on the image.
Please join us at 4pm on Sunday 8th December for our ever popular Christingle Service. As well as making Christingles, we’ll be raising money for the Children’s Society.
As we enter Advent, we invite you to join us to #FollowTheStar this Christmas.
We start this coming Saturday (7th Dec) at Messy Church. It’s a chance for the whole family to spend time together with craft, stories and songs while we think about Advent. And it all ends with a shared hot meal.
So please join us this Saturday – December 7th at 3:30pm.
There will be 3 prayer workshops in Advent, building on our Lent Prayer Course. They will include input from Revd Phil Price, and then creative opportunities to pray for the election, our nation and government. Bishop Stephen has issued some helpful guidelines and we will be making use of them too.
Please join us on 5th, 12th (election day!) and 19th December in church/garden room at 3.15 for 3.30 pm start.
The country needs our prayers at this crucial time!
Come and #FollowTheStar with us this Christmas

A huge thank you to everyone who brought a shoebox to St Catherine’s this morning. Through them, we will be sending Good News and Great Joy to less fortunate children around the world.
We know that a few more are coming later today, so check back tomorrow for a final total.
