We have been hearing excellent reports of the “My Country Wept” tour so far… “Theo engaged in a way that you could hear a pin drop.” “A GREAT evening.” “Inspiring.” The tour was originally going to only be in the Cambridge area, so we are really excited that they are coming to us. Please do endeavour to come, and bring friends! Call Ali at Quench on Monday (0118 9776715) if you need more details. Thank you.
Thank you AGAIN to our Supporters and Volunteers for ANOTHER great month. As the well known Harvest hymn says…
“Come, ye thankful people, come,
Raise the song of harvest home!
ALL IS SAFELY GATHERED IN,
Ere the winter storms begin;
God, our Maker, doth provide … ”
…and due to the fact that all of the Schools’ and Churches’ Harvest Offerings have now arrived (or are still arriving) at our Foodbank …and “all is safely gathered in” … our Food Stores are now blessed with plenty! – so the only shortages this month are: coffee, sponge-puddings, bleach, washing-up liquid, and anti-bacterial spray / hand-wash please. Many thanks.
Donations can be made to the Crowthorne Foodbank (open Mondays & Thursdays 12-2pm) Vineyard Centre, 25 Wellington Business Park, Dukes Ride, Crowthorne RG45 6LS.
For further information please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Vineyard Church Centre on 01344 780087
On Thursday 4th October, members from Crowthorne Baptist, 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.
Coming to the Morgan Recreation Ground, Crowthorne this Friday (and the next 3 Fridays…)
14th July – 16th July. Be there!
Another 450 meals donated in June – a massive thank you to all donators and volunteers! Donations points in the Co-op on the High Street and Tesco The Meadows or Vineyard Church Centre, 25 Wellington Business Centre
#StandTogether this Christian Aid Week (May 13-19)
Poverty is an outrage against humanity. It robs people of their dignity and lets injustice thrive. But together, this Christian Aid Week (13-19 May), we have the power to transform lives.
Join us to celebrate the work of Christian Aid this Sunday 6pm!
Welcome to Churches Together In Crowthorne (CTC)
We are an association of local churches from Crowthorne and Finchampstead, who come together to serve and bless our area and its people in the name of Jesus Christ.
We put on occasional combined events, such as the Good Friday “Walk of Witness”.
But our aim is to spend most of our energies working together on projects that build God’s Kingdom and benefit our village, for example setting up the Crowthorne Foodbank, running Summer activities for children, welcoming new residents, cooperating in sharing Christian faith with local care homes, and setting up teams to do assemblies in local schools.
The clergy of the churches meet together monthly over lunch to talk, pray and plan ways that our congregations can work together.
