Commitment to St Mark’s

It currently costs us about £6000 per month to sustain the work of this church. Our fundraising, giving and income only covers £5,000. Please consider joining our Parish Giving Scheme, making a regular commitment even if it’s just a few pounds, it really makes a difference to our work here. Please speak to Teresa or Maureen if you would like to consider this step.

Pilgrim: the Lords Prayer

How well do you understand the Lord’s Prayer? We say it so often: what does it mean to us? We are looking at this in our current series of the Pilgrim course, with fortnightly daytime sessions continuing on 24th June at 11:00am Monday, in St Mark’s room – and evening sessions running on Wednesdays from 7pm! All welcome.

Together in Harmony

A community music group for people with dementia along with their carers meet at Boldre Memorial Hall on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, from 10am for opening refreshments and from 10:30 to 11:30am for music. Costing £5 per couple, if you want to find out more please contact Frances Attwood on 01590 718749, 07500 117814 or via email to attwoodfrances@yahoo.co.uk.

Pennington Summer Event

On the 9th June at 6pm, any volunteers who would like to offer their services for the Pennington Community Events summer event on the 30th June are welcome to come to a planning meeting – at the Sports and Social club in Pennington.

Volunteers wanted!

St Mark’s are hosting a number of stalls for the summer event, and helpers to host these stalls would be greatly appreciated – as well as gifts for tombola or plants and bric-a-brack to sell! Please speak with Maureen for further details, if you want to be a part!

St. Mark’s Community Hall

St. Mark’s PCC are planning to renovate the hall entrance, toilets and roof in St. Mark’s Community Hall during the summer holidays which means that, unfortunately, the hall will be unavailable from 22nd July to 31st August.

This renovation will include an accessible toilet and create a more welcoming environment for the hall.

Summer Concert

On Thursday June 20th at 7:30pm the Beaulieu Warblers will make a return visit to St Mark’s to present their summer concert ‘Midsummer Dreams’.

Tickets at £7.50, to include refreshments on the evening – available on the door or through St Mark’s Church before the event.
