WT Dementia FriendlyIn the meantime let me also tell you about a new training opportunity that is under development.  Did you know that there are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK today (1.3 per cent), including over 700,000 people in England. In order to support the Surrey Heath Borough Council in its desire to see Surrey Heath as a Dementia Friendly Borough, the Churches in Camberley will be putting on Dementia Friends training in the Autumn at St. Paul’s Church.  We will then be able to make it known that our churches are Dementia Friendly and aware of the needs of those who suffer with this condition. Further information will be made available as soon as we have a date.
AR Poster Sept 2016Also in the Autumn St Paul’s will be running another Addiction Recovery Course.

happy-course1We are in the process of running another Happiness Course this is a four week course which looks at the meaning of happiness, forgiveness, gratitude, relationships & success. If you or someone you know is struggling at the moment maybe this course is for you.  Based upon science and Christian principles but you do not have to be a Christian to benefit from this Course. Watch this space for the next Course.

Peace VigilLast year on the 7th December a week after the people of France reflected on the losses suffered recently in Paris, leaders from many of the major faith groups gathered in Camberley to declare their shared commitment to peace – you can read more about it here…

On Saturday the 28th November a number of Camberley church members, (along with others from Reading, Bracknell, Oxford & Woking) attended a training day on Caring for Ex-Offenders which was run by New Leaf, we are hoping to develop a mentoring project here in Camberley.  If you are interested in hearing more about this and getting involved, OR maybe you have some experience that you can share with us please get in touch.

If you are interested in any of the Projects we run in Camberley  click here for our Associates or are interested in any of our churches, click  Who we are. Alternatively if you want to get in touch with the Communications Officer, please use the Contact us page.

Earlier last Year:

On June 25th  40 of us gathered together in CrossRoads Church to celebrate the Churches engagement in the community and to think about the next leg of the journey for Churches Together (as the paid role of PDO comes to an end in the summer). There was a great sense of unity and quite a buzz as everyone had the opportunity to express their thoughts about the areas of priority. The top 6 were:

  1. Response to Poverty (David Reed will be taking over this element of the work and can be contacted by email: centremanager@stmaryscamberley.org.uk
  2. Prayer – our Church Prayer Reps are meeting in September to network about the main prayer initiatives we have in Camberley. See also our Monthly Prayer Cycle if you would like to join with us in prayer for our town and those who live and work in it.
  3. Children & Families (here is our Toddlers Flyer)
  4. Youth – the majority of our Youth Outreach is carried out via Camberley YFC
  5. Street Angels – see our Webpages
  6. Older people! (please see this Older Peoples Flyer)
