25 Nov 2017 - St. Cuthbert's Pre-Christmas Fayre 

12 Nov 2017 - Remembrance Service

Members of 605 Squadron and local Cub Scouts groups joined the congregation.

At this season of Remembrance we give particular thanks for the self sacrifice of those whose lives were lost in defence of our everyday freedoms, we will honour them best when those freedoms of democracy and the dignity of life honoured are cherished.


Let us remember before God and commend to his sure keeping: those who have died for their country in war; those whom we knew and whose memory we treasure; those who have lived and died in the service of mankind.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

We will remember them.

23 Jun 2017 - Father James leads the Parish Pilgrimage to Walsingham

The Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham was established in 1061 when, according to the text of the Pynson Ballad (c 1485), Richeldis de Faverches prayed that she might undertake some special work in honour of Our Lady. In answer to her prayer, the Virgin Mary led her in spirit to Nazareth, showed her the house where the Annunciation occurred, and asked her to build a replica in Walsingham to serve as a perpetual memorial of the Annunciation.

25 Dec 2016 - Christmas begins with Christ

Word for Today: A calm stillness descends upon the earth as God prepares to enter into our history as a little baby. The long wait is over. The only one who can make sense of lives, can teach us how to live, deigns to take our human nature and be born among us. He is Jesus, The Christ, The Lord.

13 Nov 2016 - Remembrance Sunday

Members of 605 Squadron and local Cub Scouts groups joined the congregation.

30 Oct 2016 - Confirmation Service

We welcomed The Right Reverend Jonathan Goodall, Bishop of Ebbsfleet to the Parish Mass and Confirmation service. Father James presented eight Candidates from both Parish churches for the Holy Sacrament.


It was a wonderful service and we gave huge thanks to Bishop Jonathan and his wife Sarah for their time spent before the service and over lunch. Quite a foggy morning for a round trip from Reading. He truly is a 'Flying Bishop'!

25 Sep 2016 - A Fond Farewell

... very best wishes and good luck to Tony after many faithful years of service with St Cuthbert's.
