Pimms and Hymns!

Where St Mark’s are helping with the Pennington Community Events “The Common at Pennington” event, the 9:30am service on Sunday 30th June is cancelled; however, all are welcome to join us for a special Pimms and Hymns service at 4pm, on the common! A short and informal service, please encourage your friends to join us on what will hopefully be a warm and sunny afternoon!

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 play a part!

The event needs helpers too; from 3pm on Saturday 29th, fencing and a litter pick on the common takes place and helpers from 9am on the 30th would be gratefully welcome too.  Please speak with Rachel Noël for further details.

Our 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.

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 1st July at 11:00am Monday, in St Mark’s room. All welcome.

Can you help at the New Forest Show?

Organised by the Lyndhurst Deanery, the Church Tent welcomes visitors both Christian and non Christian. A place where they can relax with a refreshing drink whilst the children can have their faces painted or do craftwork. The Tent has been present at the Show for over 45 years and is run by a team of dedicated volunteers. Additional help always welcome, whether it is serving teas and coffees, helping with the children’s work or simply having a friendly chat with the visitors.

This year, the show is on 30th, 31st July and 1st August. If you feel you can help in the Church Tent please contact:
