Holiday at Home: August 2015
From 24th to 28th August, St Mary's Burghfield is offering a 'Holiday at Home' for those who might find themselves at a loose end over the summer. Every day, we'll be offering fun and friendship through a number of different activities: music, crafts, quizzes and trips to local attractions. Most days we're providing food as well.
We need to know numbers in advance, so booking is essential: contact the Parish Administrator (01189 834433 Mon-Thurs mornings). Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate children, but otherwise, all are welcome.
Full details are on the leaflet (with application form) which you can download by clicking here, there are also copies available from Burghfield Post Office, Burghfield Library, Burghfield Health Centre, and Weller's Fruit & Veg shop.

We Make The Road By Walking
Starting on Advent Sunday 30th November 2014, St Mary's began 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.
Now in San Francisco!
