David Gilbert is coordinator.


The first meeting will be at 5pm on Sunday October 15,after the 4pm service.


'Jenny, David and I hope as many of you as possible will be able to come and contribute to the open discussion.


'If you haven't already given your name, please feel free to come along.' If you want to be kept informed of progress and events, let Richard have your email details by emailing him on richard@oakleighlg.co.uk

Boxing ready for Christmas

We are starting to collect empty shoe boxes (later to be filled with gifts for children who otherwise will receive nothing at Christmas). Average sized boxes, please, can be left in any of the three churches and I will arrange to collect them. I aim to have boxes ready for distribution and filling by mid-October.


Please also see if you have any small soft toys in good condition that can be put into the boxes. Chas and I are so grateful that each year we have been doing Operation Christmas Child we have received such a wonderful response from all our three churches. Thank you so much.

Bookshop help for Christmas

As you start to consider making Christmas present lists, remember the Christian Bookshop, Quench, in Maidenhead at 19a Queen Street. It has an excellent selection of gifts as well as a wide choice of Christian books and CDs as well as Advent candles and calendars, cards and so on. Please support the shop as much as you can.

Commemoration of the Faithful Departed

November 5, 5pm St James the Less, Stubbings

This is an opportunity to remember and give thanks for those we love but no longer see. We light candies in memory of those close to us as the names of those we have been asked to remember are read out. We hope that you will be able to join us for this moving service. Whether or not you are able to come, if you would like some one named during the service, please enter details on the lists at the back of the churches or email the Parish Office.

The service is followed by refreshments in the Soltau Centre.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12

Given all the upheaval in the world, it seems ever more important to mark the courage and bravery of so many from this country, both in the two World Wars and currently. Services in all our churches start at 10.45am and will include the traditional two minutes silence at 11am.

There will be a Remembrance Day event for children in the Priory Room at Hurley running alongside the service in church.
