Meanwhile you are very welcome to join us for any of the Church services and other activities.
Come along to either the 8 or 10am service and you will be able to listen to and meet Anita Weare who will be speaking to us about the Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice Service – our local Children’s Hospice Service based locally in Maidenhead
Alexander Devine Children's Hospice Service was founded in 2007 with the aim of providing a dedicated children's hospice service for all children with life limiting and life threatening illnesses in Berkshire and beyond.
After both services there will be a chance to chat with Anita and after the 10am service along with tea and coffee in the hall there will be homemade cake/s provided by the Missions Committee for all to enjoy. There will also be a slide show and display in the hall along with booklets giving you more information about the missions and charities that we as a church support.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Special refreshments, including sweet and savoury snacks, craft, cake and card stalls, games etc
Do join us for this simple act of worship. Taizé style worship makes use of silences and repetitive meditative songs to deepen our awareness of God. We draw together to worship the living God and encounter his presence among us as we wait upon him.

“The Impact of God” by Iain Matthew
A recent addition to the library is a book called “The Impact of God” by Iain Matthew. The book is about St. John of The Cross. It is one of the books that Irene used in her preparation for the lecture she gave as part of the ongoing “Mystics Ancient and Modern” course here at St. John’s.
St. John of the Cross (1542-1591) was a poet, pastor and mystic. In Part 1-1 of this book, it says that one aim of the book is “to recover his [John of The Cross] witness to a self-bestowing God. Love changes people, and John’s witness to God’s love may help us to trust and to be brave.”
Please feel free to borrow this book or any other from the library. We also have some copies of the Church Times for you to browse or to take away with you.
