A Community Day of Celebration

Sunday 30 June 2019

St Mary’s Church, Burghfield

On Sunday 30 June this year the church is celebrating the great community we have in Burghfield, and the contribution of all the many groups and organisations to our common life. Our vision is twofold: firstly, a day to celebrate the people and the activities which take place in Burghfield and Burghfield Common, and secondly an opportunity for people to find out more about all the opportunities which exist to engage with their neighbours, whether that is in the capacity of helping others, or just to have some fun.

Your organisation or group is invited to take part. The day is divided into 3 sections, and we warmly invite you to join in with as many parts as you can.

10am Service of Thanksgiving in St Mary’s Church

Representatives from all the different organisations and groups are invited to attend this service held to honour the voluntary work which builds up our common life.

12 noon A Celebratory Lunch

This will be served in the Parish Centre to thank representatives of the groups and organisations; each group is invited to nominate 2 or 3 people to attend. Please send names of those attending and any dietary requirements to Janey on the email address below

2pm-4pm Community Stalls/Information Giving (with free book/CD “stall” and free refreshments and cake)

Each organisation or group is invited to have a stall or display in the church to tell the community about what they offer, and opportunities for new members to get involved. The community will be invited to come to have a look around, and perhaps to express their interest in joining in some new activities. In addition, Buy Nothing Burghfield invite everyone to bring or take books and CDs. Join your neighbours for a delicious cuppa and some cake and a chat.

Please reply to Janey, the Parish Administrator, to say which parts you can participate in. Her email is admin@stmarysburghfield.org
