Remembrance 2018

This year for the centenary of Remembrance, St Mark’s has been awarded some silhouette soldiers, which you will start to see appearing in church, to help us remember and think about Remembrance. Our Remembrance services are:

  • Fri 9 Nov, 10:55 Act of Remembrance at Memorial
  • Sun 11 Nov, 9:30 Remembrance Reflection Service
  • Sun 11 Nov, 10:55 Act of Remembrance at Memorial

Our thanks to all who have produced – only nine short of 1,400 (as of the evening of the 25th) poppies – many of which are now in place at the front of the church.

Community Churchyard Tidy

On a warm Autumn morning under a blue sky and glorious sun, St Mark’s welcomed many from our congregation as well as the local community – who came together to help us to tidy our churchyard. With the special remembrance service approaching (remembering 100 years from the end of the First World War), we wanted to ensure the grounds reflected the incredible pride Pennington has for those whose lives were sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today.

We’re lucky to have such a beautiful space and are grateful beyond words to those in the community who have come to help us today. A special mention to the Musketeer, a local pub in Pennington – as well as those from the Pennington social club and volunteers from the village Tesco Express store.
