The interviews will be conducted by visiting preacher Roger Carswell for the week which runs between Monday, June 2 and Sunday, June 8, at the church in St Mary's Close, just off Maidenhead High Street.
Each 'Real Lives' evening will run between 7.30-9.30pm with tickets £2.50, available from the church office or on the door.
