SMALL GROUPS: PRAYER GROUPS and CURSILLO Seasonal prayer groups take place across the Parish.
Cursillo is a movement of the Church, providing a method by which Christians are empowered to grow through prayer, study and action and enabled to share God’s love with all. Cursillo seeks to serve the whole Church, and to equip Christians to be the church wherever they are, and in whatever stream of tradition or theology they are comfortable. We have a Cursillo group in our Parish.
We are a Parish in the Deanery of Windsor and Maidenhead within the Diocese of Oxford
