Nativity play this coming Sunday
This coming Sunday 21st December St Mary's children will put on their annual Nativity play. So come and join in, all the children can take part. This year we shall be focusing on the shepherds: little ones (under 4s) come dressed as sheep; and 4+ as shepherds.
Promises to be great as usual, 10:30am in our usual morning service.
Celebrate Christmas at St Mary's
Carols round the Tree: 13th Dec 2014
The annual Big Christmas Sing round the tree in Burghfield Village took place on Saturday. Over 230 of us sang carols, ate almost as many mince pies and drank 40 litres of coffee (with grateful thanks to Starbucks). We were led by the wonderful Tadley Brass Band, and we also raised £200 for charity which the government will double up to £400!
Thank-you to Burghfield parish council for arranging the tree and to TIM for the decorations. A great start to Christmas.
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).
