Maidenhead Foodbank - update


Maidenhead Foodshare are appealing urgently for help to replenish their supplies: donations have dwindled in recent months and there are now many empty shelves.  Currently they are in particular need of: tinned vegetables/tinned fruit/spreads - jam, marmite, peanut butter/Rice - bags and individual portions/pasta sauces/longlife milk/gluten-free products.  Currently they have plenty of porridge, tinned fish and pasta.  There are drop off points in many of the local supermarkets and in each of our churches. Please ensure all items donated are within their 'Best before' date.

Why On Earth Do They Think That?   

Saturday 22 June

If you sometimes feel confused by the way non-church friends respond when you talk about your Christian faith or they react as if you're from another planet, this study day at St Mary's Maidenhead, with Mark Meynell should help.  It will explore why our culture has shifted away from centuries of Christian thought and trace the major influences on people's thinking. A day to broaden horizons, deepen understanding, and above all to grow in confidence in Jesus.   9.30-3.00 pm, tickets £5.
