Advent Sunday Taize Worship

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.

Welcome to new residents of Birch Place!

On Thursday 14th November, members from Crowthorne Baptist, Crowthorne Methodist, Holy Ghost RC, St John’s and St Sebastian’s churches joined new homeowners at Birch Place to welcome them into their new home.

The lounge was soon buzzing with happy chatter and yes, we demolished the cakes and biscuits that the team brought too!

Our hope and prayer is that all the new residents will be really happy, thrive and be blessed as they make their new home at Birch Place.
