We are really excited to announce this one – an informal discussion group help at the Café on tuesday mornings looking at basic elements of Christian faith. A kind of ‘everything you wanted to ask, but were scared to ask’
The sessions will be hosted by Tanya and Gary
Please join us from 9.45. Kick-off is 10am, ends at 11.
New Town primary school is aiming to raise £15,000 so that it can install solar panels, helping provide a cleaner environment for the future and a great way to teach pupils about energy and climate change .
New Town Primary School is relying on parents and the local community to help raise the money needed to turn the school into its own clean, green power machine. There are three things they say that you can do to help:
- They are looking for volunteers to help sell books of vouchers to friends and families across town. If you would like to sell a few, get in touch!
- Persuade your own workplace to buy a panel on our roof
- Donate some time! From organising a cake sale to running a sponsored marathon, New Town school would love your help. Please get in touch as they are planning lots of fundraising ideas to meet their target!
If you would like to find out more or would like to donate to this project, please visit http://www.solarschools.org.uk/newtown/
What would you do to help those who are homeless in Reading?
The young people in St John’s church spent the evening of Saturday February 4th building shelters and learning about the experiences of those who have to live out on the streets of Reading at night.
The next morning, waking bleary-eyed from their shelters, they helped lead the morning all-age service with Alison Peyton.

After the success of last years Lent series of Films examing various directors approaches to the life of Christ (Jesus of Nazareth, Last temptation of Christ, Passion of Christ, Jesus of Montreal) it has been decided that we will run another series this year. The movies chosen for this year will not directly tackle any biblical story or theme but have been carefully selected instead for their powerful individual vision and challenge as contempory cinema. Sometimes provocative, sometimes disturbing and maybe even, at times, spiritually uplifting, these films will allow us to enter another world which in turn will inform and challenge our own.
All are welcome, refreshments provided. Time: Thursday @ 7.45pm Feb 25th, Mar 4th, Mar 11th, Mar 18th, Mar 25th.
Congratulations to all those confirmed at St John’s on November 15th by Bishop Stephen.
