August Services

During the summer holiday period, our services do not follow the normal pattern. Here are the details:

BG School Foundation Governor:

A Foundation Governor supports the school's Christian ethos. It involves c8 meetings a year and occasional school activities.  Interested? Please speak to the vicar.

An update from Mark & Rosalie:

A week ago Mark wrote: I'm writing this again from Rosalie's hospital room. She was discharged on Tuesday but, because of symptoms to do with her gut (and the effect of the strong meds she has been having), was readmitted [for further medical treatment] Depending on the results, we are hoping she may be discharged on Saturday and then we fly back to Guatemala next week. But we are still taking everything a day at a time. Thank you for your prayers.

Urgent request form Maidenhead Foodshare

Our Foodbank has put out an urgent appeal as stocks are low. The Charity helps 200 people weekly and needs supplies of pasta, tinned tomatoes and vegetables, jam, spreads, biscuits and soup. Drop off points are in each church.

The Brett Foundation needs volunteers.

Sue Brett writes: There's many ways you can help: at our drop-in centre, our evening meals, collecting fresh food daily from places around town, cooking meals for us. You can do as little or as much as you wish. The cooking can be done in your home (we reimburse you) and brought to the centre. The centre opens daily 10am (summer holiday time) till 1pm Monday to Friday and 7.00pm till 9pm (summer holiday times) Tues. Wed, and Sunday evenings. We truly make a difference in Maidenhead to people who need our help. We can only do this with a fantastic team of volunteers.  If you are interested and would like to pop into the centre for a chat (49 King Street) Sue Brett is there Thurs. mornings or email info@thebrettfoundation.org.uk or call 07582158849.

It is only Together we can make a difference.
