Sunday at 11am
What can I expect?
We are a friendly, diverse church family, made up of people of all ages and from all walks of life. Our services combine contemporary Christian songs with some traditional hymns, prayers and engaging Bible teaching.
Our main aim as a congregation is to discover what God has to say to us through the Bible and help each other put it into practice in our lives.
You are very welcome to come along and join us. We are used to welcoming visitors, so whether you are new to Maidenhead or new to going to church, we hope you will find us a non-threatening, friendly group of people, who are endeavouring to follow Christ.
How long is the service?
About one and a quarter hours.
What about children?
We love having children with us at St Mary’s. There are groups for children and young people from 0-14 years. On a regular Sunday we stay together for the first 15 minutes of the service before the children leave for their groups. Occasionally we stay together for the whole service.
Social events for families and parents at the 11am congregation are organised by Jon & Louise Drake.
Is there communion?
We celebrate communion on the 4th Sunday of the month.
What happens afterwards?
We meet for tea and coffee in the hall which is a chance to chat informally and encourage each other, while children play in the church garden.
The 11am congregation is led by Jon Drake. Jon is supported by a pastoral team which includes Jeff Branch, Louise Drake, Neil & Angela McDonald, Penny Watson and the leaders of the 11am Growth Groups.
You can find the sheet for the next service below; it's usually available by Friday each week, for the coming Sunday. The previous Sunday's sheet will be available until replaced by the new sheet.
