Messy Church: 7th February
Following our sing-along Frozen afternoon in January, Messy Church proper restarts on Saturday 7th February. Starting at 3:30pm with fun, crafts, stories songs, tea and general messiness. We'll finish around 5:45pm.
Come and join the fun: it's free and takes place on the first Saturday of each month at St Mary's Burghfield. This time, there might still be some Frozen-ness about the theme, but I couldn't say any more than that!

We Make The Road By Walking
Starting on Advent Sunday 30th November, St Mary's will begin a year of following a book written by the theologian Brian McLaren called 'We Make The Road By Walking'. The book has 52 chapters (each with three bible readings), one for each week of the year, and is designed to be used by groups, including whole congregations.
The content will form the basis of our exploration, preaching and prayer, Sunday by Sunday. Before you ask, no, you don't have to buy the book to join in, although several people have got it already.
We encourage everyone to join in as much as possible: we anticipate groups will meet to discuss at other times of the week; we've also set up a Facebook group called 'Life in Burghfield' to help keep the conversation going online as well. To join the group, click here or on the picture below, then click Join to enrol (you'll need a Facebook account first).
