Religious Communities:


The Pastoral Area also serving West Berkshire Community Hospital


The Together Magazine is aimed at keeping the Pastoral Area informed of what is happening in the various parishes as the Pastoral Area/Deanery is rather large. The
Editorial team is interested in having articles that may serve the purpose of linking the whole Pastoral Area and Deanery.
