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. There‘s a drop off point in each church. Please ensure that items donated are within the best before date.
We cannot guarantee a sunny afternoon, but you‘re sure to get a warm welcome at our annual Snowdrop tea in the Soltau Centre. Meet up with friends and enjoy a stroll through the churchyard to see how the snowdrops are doing this year, followed by a cuppa and homemade cakes and scones.

Amidst the busyness of modern living why not take a break and come and join us in the quiet of St James the Less.
Tuesday 16th February at 2.30pm in the Priory Room, Hurley Oasis, our Parish Prayer Group, has a meditative feel. We listen reflectively to music, bible passages and readings before a short time of silence leads into prayer for those who are unwell and for the Parish.
