Latest News

Update from the Foodbank


Thank you for supporting West Berkshire Foodbank.  This year, the Foodbank have sent out more stock than they have received in donations. They are regularly having to purchase stock to be able to meet the demand. The average monthly weight of donations is 8,301kgs but they have been distributing an average of 10,123kgs. This is obviously not sustainable!

As well as supporting individual clients, food is also sent to organisations such as Loose Ends, Newbury Soup Kitchen, Help for Ukraine and Racing to help Ukraine. They are supporting  Ukrainian guests who will receive £200 from the government on arrival in the UK but it takes up to 8 weeks before their benefit claims are processed, so they need our help during this time.


Donations can be left at the our church which is also used as a distribution point and support centre on Thursdays.

Good morning. This week we’ve noticed how life is constantly changing. Finally let’s remember that we have a God who does not change. God once said to His people “I don’t change, and that’s why you’re still alive.” God is faithful to all His promises, He never gives up on us, and His goodness never fails. The same is true of Jesus. An old song says about Him, “Unlike our friends by nature who change with changing years, this Friend is always worthy of that dear Name He bears”. Not the best poetry maybe, but deep truth to stand on when everything seems in flux. Jesus is our ever-faithful Friend. And this means we can trust Him not only with our eternal destiny but also with tomorrow, next week, and next year. ... See MoreSee Less

Good morning. Our church is going through a lot of change at the moment. Some people have moved away, others have died, and many more have arrived, including a dozen new friends from different parts of the world. And all at a time where we are adjusting to life after a pandemic. It’s a faster rate of change than I’ve ever known before at our church. It brings to mind this phrase of Paul’s, “the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people”. When God’s people are drawn together, especially from different languages and cultures, the glory of what God has done for us in Christ shines that much brighter. But this coming together also brings the challenge of accepting one another, not just with a polite smile, but with real conversation and warm hospitality. ... See MoreSee Less

(4) We will continue to keep the additional ventilation by opening windows for our Sunday services.

(5) We will continue to offer the ability for people to create space by placing an “X” on chairs.

(6) We will remove the restrictions on numbers within rooms e.g. kitchen

Please continue to be considerate to others and, if you are unwell or showing any COVID symptoms, please stay home.
