Life/Pro-Life Group

We try to bring an awareness to people, with the help of LIFE and other pro-life organisations, of the attacks on human life from various quarters in society and show how we can act to change this.  This is done through talks in schools, organising special events, speakers and prayer evenings.  We also try to make known LIFE’s work in pro-life alternatives such as LIFE houses, adoption, infertility problems, fertility management, baby hospices, etc as well as helping those who have suffered from abortion themselves.

If you are interested in receiving an information pack please contact us.  We meet every two months alternating between St Joseph's and St Teresa's Church in Beaconsfield.

“Only respect for life can be the foundation and guarantee of the most precious and essential goods of society, such as democracy and peace.” (JP2 The Gospel of Life.101)

London Run

The London Run helps the homeless and people in need.

For over 20 years the parish of St Joseph’s has joined with other Christian Churches in the area to provide food, drink and other sustenance as well as bedding and clothing to the homeless and people in need on the streets of London and Slough.

Each Monday many of our supporters bring wrapped sandwiches, fruit, crisps, cakes and soft drinks to the Priory, where they are sorted and packed by a team (The Packers).  These items are then loaded into the London Run van for a team of volunteers (The Runners) to take to the West End and Slough for distribution.  The Runners leave about 8pm every Monday and return about midnight.  We have rotas for The Packers, The Teamakers and The Runners.  If you would like to join the Packers, please come along to the Parish Centre any Monday from 1:30pm.
