Oxford Diocesan Cursillo Weekend

April 7th to 10th 2016

Cursillo, a Spanish term for ‘short course in Christianity’ is “a movement of the Church, providing a method by which Christians are empowered to grow through prayer, study and action.”

A Cursillo ’weekend’ runs from Thursday evening to Sunday afternoon. It’s aimed at those who have some knowledge of Christianity and wish to refresh and energise their faith. The next weekend is at the Cold Ash Centre, near Newbury. For further details see http://www.oxfordcursillo.co.uk/

If you’re interested please let me know as space is limited.  Keith

Foodshare—the need has not gone away!

Thanks to all who have been donating non-perishable food items for distribution by Maidenhead Foodshare to families struggling to pay grocery bills. During 2015 Foodshare supported close to 200 people per week an increase of about 10% on 2014. People are usually referred by the CAB, Maidenhead children’s extended care services, a drug & alcohol recovery support service and RWBM’s community mental health team as well as referrals direct to Sue Brett. It is encouraging that over 90% of those they help need assistance for less than three months. A reminder of the kind of items required:  Breakfast Cereals, Tea Bags/Instant coffee, Fruit juice (carton), Tinned meat/fish, Rice/pasta, Pasta sauces, Soup, Jam, UHT milk, Sugar, Tinned vegetables, Tinned tomatoes, Instant mash, Tinned puddings (rice/sponge), Biscuits/snack bars, Toilet Paper.
