The Hermitage Team of Churches have some exciting events coming up in the next few weeks, they are open to anyone, please do have a look and add to your diaries!

Team Pilgrims

This new group will be discussing 'The Great Spiritual Migration', the follow up book by Brian McLaren's 'We make the road by walking'.  It is described as a re-imaging of Christianity that is all about action rather than a list of beliefs.  All are welcome, for more details please contact Pamela Betts on 01635 202263 or email  All participants will need to purchase a copy of the book, currently £9.99 on Amazon.

Prayer and Paint

On Saturday 1st June come along to the Fisher Room in Cold Ash for a morning of Paint and Prayer led by Margaret Fisher.  Margaret will have all the equipment you need but feel free to bring your own as well!  The workshop runs from 9:30am to 1pm and you don't have to be able to paint to join in!  Open to everyone, come and long and see where this takes you.

Waitrose Newbury Green Token Scheme - East Ilsley Church

We are delighted to announce that thanks to some very hard work by the East Ilsley team, St Mary's Church in East Ilsley will be one of the 3 recipients of the green token scheme at Waitrose in Newbury throughout June 2019.  So, no there is no excuse not to do your shopping there in the coming month!  Simply buy your shopping, take a green token and pop it in the slot marked 'St Mary's Church East Ilsley'.  All money raised will go towards much needed improvements to the church.
