During September the churches in Thatcham have continued to welcome people back to church after the long absence caused by Covid. It has been a wonderful experience to come together again physically, both to reunite with old friends and to welcome new ones.
Many of our churches have recently held harvest celebrations, bringing tinned food to the church which is then given to West Berks Foodbank. We always love to promote the Foodbank at this time of year, but this year their stocks had become seriously depleted over the summer so an extra push was needed.
Four of our local churches joined together in September to run The Bereavement Journey, a 6-week course for anyone mourning the loss of a loved one. There are about 20 participants on the course, men and women of all ages, some recently bereaved and others much longer ago. Many of us are finding it very helpful, including the leaders!
As ever we want our community to know that we are here to serve you in any way we can. All of our Sunday services are open to anyone and we are always delighted to welcome newcomers. Our individual churches have websites with contact details and lots of other information, and you can always contact me on 07922 170503.
