Welcome to Shaw Church
The Parish of St Mary’s Shaw cum Donnington
We are a community of Christians bringing the Good News of God’s love to everyone in the parish, through Worship, Prayer, Teaching, and Serving.
We invite you to come and join us as we gather to worship God on Sundays at 10am, or in any of the other things we have going on.
Shaw cum Donnington lies to the north of Newbury in Berkshire, and St Mary’s Church is in the middle of the parish, just to the East of the A339.
A word for the week
- That they may be One
Why, when all logic says we’d all be better off if we worked together, do we quarrel and fight, wage war, steal, cheat and lie? We see the evidence all around us – from the war in Ukraine to party politics to strikes to on-line abuse to planning applications to church demoninations.
Jesus calls (and prays) for his followers to be one (eg see John 17) so, as Christians, we need to be different. But how?
I was reminded of a song by Michael Fry which may give us a clue:
Jesus, Be the Centre, be my source, be my light, be my hope, be my song, be the fire in my heart, be the wind in these sails, be the reason that I live, Jesus.
“There is one body and one spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called.” Eph 4:4
