Please come along and bring all the family and your friends, buy Christmas gifts
and produce, enjoy a ploughman’s lunch or a coffee and help to raise money for Parish
funds. Items for the tombola, produce stalls, small items, cosmetics, toiletries,
jewellery etc suitable for stocking fillers, second hand children’s toys and books
in good condition etc can be left in the Soltau Centre. If you can help in any way
please contact Sue Harrington-Hill on 01628-783028.
We are fortunate to have a Christian Bookshop in Maidenhead. (19a Queen St.). They
have an excellent selection of Christmas cards and gifts as well as the usual choice
of Christian books/CD’s. The shop is an important resource for the churches in our
area and a place where those who may not feel comfortable entering a church can go
for support and prayer. Please support the shop as much as you can.
Thanks to all who have been collecting non-perishable food items for distribution
by Maidenhead Foodshare to families struggling to find money for grocery bills. Debbie
Watson writes on behalf of the Foodbank,
“Thank you so much for all your contributions to foodshare this year, your generosity
is amazing. We are looking to make up some Christmas hampers for the 100+ families
who are currently receiving food bags and ask if you would be able to contribute
some luxury or Christmas food items as well as general foodstuffs.”
There‘s a drop off point at the back of each church.

Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal
A great big thank-you to everyone that has supported this year's Shoe-boxes. We have
had such a lovely response from everyone. Also so many people donated things to go
into boxes from which I have made up many more boxes. I have not made a total count
