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.

Ways of Giving to St Mark’s

Christmas Fayre in Pennington

At the Pennington Christmas Lights Event taking place on 30th November, St Mark’s will be having various stalls in the hall at the Junior School. We shall be grateful therefore for any gifts of bric-a-brac items and tombola prizes together with bottles of wine and Christmas food items for the draw.

Do you want to host your own stall on the night? Although most spaces for stalls indoors have been taken, there is space outside – if you, or anyone you know – wanted to sell your wares on the night.
