TASTE: Sunday afternoons
TASTE (Tea And Share Together Eucharist) services take place on the second or third Sunday of each month in the afternoon. It's a short service of Holy Communion (BCP) starting at 3:30pm in Burghfield church, followed by tea in the Parish Centre.
The next dates are:
December 11th (and be the first to see our Christmas Tree Fayre)
Welcome to our new priest in charge!
We are delighted to be able to announce the appointment of our new priest in charge who will be the Reverend Glynn Lautenbach.
Glynn was chosen by the interview panel from the four candidates invited to this stage of the application process. Some of you will have already met her at the church family tea that we held on the day before the interviews, or maybe bumped into her at Cafe B or St Mary's School on the interview day.
Please put 10 January 2017 in your diaries as a provisional date for Glynn's licensing service. In the meantime please thank God for the prospect of exciting times ahead, and continue to pray for Glynn and her family as she prepares to move.
We must stress that this appointment is subject to receiving satisfactory DBS clearance. We have received a previous check and Bishop-to-Bishop references confirming that there are no concerns. However, we do need to wait for the formal paperwork, and until such a time as this is received, the offer of appointment is conditional.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 11:29)

Sponsor A Chair
Following the installation of under-floor heating in St Mary's Burghfield, the next phase of improvements is to improve the church seating. We have already adapted some of the Victorian benches, which have been weakened by woodworm and repairs over the years, and we need to introduce new chairs to supplement the seating capacity for large services and community events.
Thanks to the generosity of many, we have purchased 60 chairs to date. We are offering the opportunity to sponsor a chair, which will include an inscribed plaque if required. Click here to see our leaflet which explains all the details.
