In 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.
Also in the Autumn St Paul’s will be running another Addiction Recovery Course.
We 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.
Last 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.

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:
