Foodshare

As we celebrate God’s abundant provision for us and his wonderful world we also need to remember that we who have much are to give generously. Thanks to all who have been donating non-perishable food items for distribution by Maidenhead Foodshare to families struggling to pay grocery bills. This is an excellent way we can be of practical help to struggling families, please consider helping if you have not done so so far.

There‘s a drop off point at the back of the church.  


Quench Bookshop

It’s only October, but shortly it will be time to buy those Christmas cards. The best selection of cards with a Christian theme available locally is at our local Christian bookshop in Maidenhead, Quench. Quench also stocks gifts with a Christian theme: you may wish to include them, for example, with your gifts to godchildren. Quench is at 19 Queen Street, Maidenhead, SL6 1NB and is open 10am to 5pm Monday to Saturday. Please support this important Christian ministry as much as you can.

Even more reason to remember

Following a summer full of news of wars around the world, it's even more important to mark the courage and bravery of so many from this country, both in the two World Wars and currently. Services in all our churches start at 10.45am on November 9 and will include the traditional two minutes silence at 11 am. There will be a Remembrance Day event for children in the Priory Room at Hurley, alongside the service in church.

Recital at St Mary’s

David Goode is visiting St Mary’s on Tue 21st Oct at 12:10pm to perform a Lunchtime Concert.  David is an internationally respected organist, and is also a member of St Mary's. He will perform a selection of piano and organ music and share how his own Christian faith shapes his life. Admission free. Lunch £2.

This service is an opportunity to remember and give thanks for those whom we love but no longer see. If you would like someone named during the service please give details on the lists at the back of the churches or email the Parish Office.


Oasis - Tuesday 21st October

Oasis, our fortnightly Parish Prayer Group, has a meditative feel. Please do come and join us as we listen reflectively to music, bible passages and other

Parish Walk

Saturday October 25th 11am

We shall meet at the Belgian Arms on the green at Holyport for a circular, flat walk.

Short local strolls are also available. Please note...it would help if you would share cars as parking is limited: it is very muddy in parts, wellies recommended: if you would like lunch please let Ian know.

Samaritan’s Purse Operation

Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal

It’s the time of year when I need to ask for your support. We had such a great response last year, thank you very much. Many churches, schools and organizations support O.C.C. make Christmas presents available to children who have very little. Shoe boxes and a card with details are available in the Priory Room or from me. If you have a school or company that would like to take part, do contact me. If you’d like to take part, but can’t do a box, I will happily to do it for you:  donations will be gratefully received and put towards items to fill shoe boxes. Finally, if you have any empty shoe boxes please let me know.

Every Blessing, Sandra Brooks. 01628 822830
