New! Quench Christian Bookshops

Quench Christian Bookshops (registered charity) wish to increase the number of trustees (currently 4) and expand the expertise of its’ board.

They are interested in trustees with retail, sales and marketing, IT or property experience and a real interest/passion for promoting their resources.

Trading is currently very difficult – you can help by using the shops.  If trading deteriorates further, it may not be possible to retain these shops which have a considerable ministry to the general public and sell hundreds of bibles each year which would otherwise not be available in Maidenhead and Wokingham.

Lifeline – MOT for Christians – postponed

This has been put on hold for now as Revd Hugh is still in hospital in Hereford.  We will keep you updated on his progress and ask that you keep him in your prayers.

The course will start when Hugh is better.

It will take place over three Thursday evenings in SMSJ Parish Centre, and will include the topics “How to pray better”, “Who is Jesus?” and “Christian Maturity”.

Berkshire Womens’ Aid thanks

A Big Thank You to all who so generously donated items for the Berkshire Womens’ Aid.

We delivered two very large car loads and the look on the faces of ladies as they helped unpack them said it all.

They were amazed, delighted, and extremely grateful

Congratulations to Linda!

Quench bookstall thanks

Thank you to everyone who bought from the bookstall I ran for Quench on 3rd Dec.

Not only were you supporting our local Christian Bookshop based at the Craft Village on Heathlands Rd, but the church also gained £15.30 in commission on the sales.

Thank you. Carolyn Fox

Nativity on the Loose!

Thank you to everyone who gave up their Saturday afternoon for this incredible event last weekend, for which 150 people from the local community attended!

With donkeys, ponies, and goats grazing it certainly smelt like Bethlehem would have done, and with angels floating about, a very grumpy King Herod sat in the vestry, and Mary & Joseph found sheltering in the Bamboo Grove in the Liddell Gardens the Nativity story was well and truly told…

So well done to everyone and thank you for your enthusiasm, willingness to help, and prayers. James.
