Thank you for visiting our website for St Peter's and our sister church St Mark's, Maidenhead. We hope that you will find enough information and detail here to give you a picture of who we are as a church.
We are passionate about being a church where everyone is made welcome and everyone knows that they matter, both to us and to God.
We are committed to following and trying to live like Jesus. This means we look after community of people exploring what it means to live life with Jesus. This means that we look for ways to love and serve each other and our wider community.
Dear Church Family,
I am writing to encourage you all in this difficult time in the life of our nation. The social distancing measures introduced by our government have naturally led to some anxiety as people begin to adjust to a new season. Whilst there will be significant challenges in the months ahead - we can be confident in the steadfast love of our Heavenly Father.
One of the changes we will experience over this coming season will be that our usual pattern of Sunday services and mid-week activities will be put on hold. We are doing this to respond positively to the situation we are facing, and with particular care to protect the most vulnerable members of society.
Whilst Sunday services will be put on hold, we are actively looking into other ways in which we can continue to worship, received encouragement from God's word, and pray for the needs of the world. Though we will not meet together, we will continue to worship our risen Lord. Likewise, whilst Connect Groups will need to stop meeting in person, we are actively exploring ways in which we can love, support and pray for one another.
I want to stress that the church of Jesus Christ is not hunkering down, it is creatively responding to the challenge of this next season. Ministries are not ceasing, they are shifting their focus to meet the changing needs around us. A few existing ministries, such as Foodbank, that can function within the social distancing measures, will continue.
I am reminded of a phrase first coined by former archbishop, William Temple. He said that the Church is the one organisation that exists for the benefits of its non-members. In this same spirit, not only will we look to love and support one another through this time - may I also warmly encourage you all to share this same loving care with your friends and neighbours. As Jesus said, we are to love our neighbours as ourselves.
So be encouraged, Jesus is still on the throne, and the Church will march on victorious throughout the generations until He returns. In the meantime, let me encourage you to pray, love others, and to hold out the hope of the Good News of Jesus to a world so in need of the transforming power of the gospel.
With my love and prayers for you, and your loved ones.
