Churches Together in Marlow

About 90 people gathered for a hugely enjoyable and delicious Harvest Supper at Newfield Community Church. After deducting expenses, the proceeds amounted to £333.

The café/bar at Marlow Rowing Club was full to capacity for a forum arranged to help build positive links across different faiths. The speakers were Venerable Jonathan Chaffey (RAF Chaplain in Chief) and Rabbi Jonathan Romain of Maidenhead Synagogue, and the meeting was chaired by Sir Alastair Norris. Paddy Gallagher, who arranged the evening, is hoping to invite an Imam and a Hindu priest to join in similar discussions in the future.

A children’s Light party was held at Newfield Community Church in October, and a youth ‘Silent Disco’ at the Marlow Youth Centre in November. The leaders of children and youth work in different churches got together to arrange these events.

The AGM and Celebration that usually takes place in November has been postponed, and will now be held at Great Marlow School Sixth Form Centre on Sunday 21st January, as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. The Unity Supper will be held at St Peter’s School on Tuesday 23rd January, and midday meetings will be held at Marlow Methodist Church during the rest of the Week of Prayer. Arrangements will also be made to celebrate Pancake Day and to form ecumenical Lent Study Groups.
