Thank you

A big thank you to everybody for your contributions towards Saturday’s coffee morning, raising money for St Catherine’s. It was lovely to see so many people there enjoying tea and coffee, a variety of home baked items and browsing the stalls. We also enjoyed a lovely evening at St Catherine’s hosting the Sillars Orchestra, performing soundtracks from the movies.

Daytime Fellowship Group

St Catherine's will be starting a new daytime fellowship group, that will meet each Tuesday 11:30 AM throughout December. In the New Year, we will continue to meet on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at the same time. The aim of the group is to share Christian fellowship together, by worshipping, praying  and learning together, with the option of sharing lunch afterwards . This will mean that in the New Year  there will be an opportunity to meet for fellowship each week. 1st and 3rd Wednesdays 7:30 PM and 2nd and 4th Tuesdays during the day. You're more than welcome to join us. If you would like more information please contact Martin or Gill.
