Pilgrim Course: Autumn season
Our popular Pilgrim course continues throughout this autumn with 'The Ten Commandments'. A series of six sessions on Wednesday evenings. Dates are as follows:
8th October, 22nd October, 5th November, 12th November, 19th November and 3rd December.
Each session starts at 7:30pm in the Burghfield / Burghfield Common area, all are welcome. The sessions so far have been very interesting, prompting some really good discussions. If you want to know more, please ask Revd Gill or Revd Alison.
Messy Church: Saturday 1st November
Messy Church continues on the first Saturday each month, starting at 3:30pm in Burghfield church and parish centre. The next dates are:
1st November: Sizzling Sausages and Saints
6th December: Twinkly Sparkly Messy Christmas
10th January 2015: We Three Kings (on not quite the first Saturday on the month!)
There will be all the usual stories, crafts, songs, prayer and we eat together around 5:00pm. All are welcome, entry is free: children bring your Mum and Dad, someone else's Mum and Dad, or any other (responsible) adults who need an excuse to be messy.
Commemoration Service: 2nd Nov
Our annual service to remember those we love who have died will be on Sunday 2nd November at 3:00pm. All are welcome to join us for this beautiful and simple service. Afterwards everyone is invited to the Parish Centre for tea and cakes.
If you would like the name of a loved one included in the service, you can request this using cards available at the back of church, or you can email Revd Gill. We look forward to seeing you all there.
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.
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.
