Advent Wreath-Making: 27th Nov
Join us for a sparkly, festive and creative evening where you'll make your own advent wreath. Like last year, only better, we shall have professional florist Emma Curtis to give advice and a demonstration. And yes, there'll still be mulled wine and delicious home-made mince pies!
You'll need to bring some garden greenery, strong scissors or secateurs, four Christmassy candles and any decorations you might like to use (or just come along...we'll have plenty for you to use and choose from).
Pudding Club Returns! 29th November
After a long absence, Pudding Club is back, on Saturday 29th November starting at 7:30 in Burghfield St Mary's Parish Centre. Just to remind you, this is what the puddings looked like last time. Come and munch your way to raise funds to fix the leak in our spire.
Toy Services: Sunday 7th December
On Sunday 7th December we shall be holding our annual event to support Berkshire Womens Aid (BWA). Donations of new or nearly new toys are welcomed (particularly any for older children), and blessed at our morning services.
Please don't wrap your presents, as BWA will need to match them with suitable children. We will see that they get to BWA in time for Christmas. Families may leave abusive and dangerous situations with little more than the clothes they stand up in - this is a particularly difficult time of year for them - so please support us again this year. Thank-you!
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).
