Experience the Labyrinth

Wednesday 24th November between 11am and 4pm

We welcome you to come and experience a labyrinth on Wednesday, or to come at any time during the week to chat or to find out more about Christianity.

Labyrinths have been used for Christian meditation and reflection for many centuries, from simple outdoor pathways to elaborate designs in cathedrals and abbeys.

A labyrinth used in this way is a journey in three parts. The first part (in towards the centre) is about shedding the cares of the outside world and turning towards God. The second part (the centre) provides an unhurried place to be still and give yourself over to God. The third part (out from the centre) is about taking what you have received back out into the world. The labyrinth journey is a personal one, and everyone experiences it in a different way.

Via Dolorosa – Stations of the Cross interpreted by artists of different faiths

This is a multi-media presentation of the Stations of the Cross interpreted by artists of eight different faiths.
Saint Mary’s, Church Street, Slough. Tuesday 17th November. Come at any time between 2pm and 5pm

Early Christians would sometimes visit Jerusalem as pilgrims, to walk in the footsteps of Jesus and reflect upon his passion and death. They would stop along the path to contemplate what happened there, marking the stages of the journey for others to follow. The path that Jesus walked became known as Via Dolorosa – the way of pain.  Over time, ‘stations’ were often installed in churches so that people could follow this journey as part of their devotions.

Afternoon of Prayer in different Christian traditions

Friday 20th November 1pm to 6pm. Take time out for quiet and reflection, prayer and worship in various Christian traditions.

All are welcome – of any faith or no faith.

‘For God so loved the world
that He gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him will not die,
but have everlasting life.’ John 3:16

Jesus said, ‘I came that they may have life,
and have it abundantly.’ John 10:10


Our Father, who art in heaven.
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.


We are one family who follow the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, who for us is God’s Son and reveals God’s love for us as witnessed in the Gospels

We believe in ONE GOD.

We believe in a God, who is eternal, who created the world. This is God the Father.

We believe in a God, born as a baby called Jesus.

This Jesus grew up to be a prophet, who was sentenced to death on a cross.

Three days later Jesus came back to life, and was seen by his followers, who spoke with him and ate with him.

Jesus was then taken up into heaven to be reunited with God the Father.

This is God the Son.

We believe in a God who in truth brings wisdom to people and inspires their lives.

This is God the Holy Spirit.

Christians speak many languages, and are from many ethnic and cultural backgrounds, but we worship one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We worship in many churches and buildings throughout Slough, every day of the week, but especially on a Sunday.

All are welcome to pop into any church and find out more.
