An invitation to All Souls
Every year the Church remembers those we love who have died. The traditional name for this time is “All Souls”. At St. Mark we hold a special service to remember those who have died, especially those who have died in the last few years. This year the service will be on Sunday 28th October at 3pm and will be followed by tea and refreshments to which everyone is invited.
Over the years many people have found that this service has helped them to take a further step towards the healing of their memories and emotions as we remember those who have died and whom we have commended into the care of God. We extend a warm invitation to you to attend this service. Any members of your family and friends, who would like to come to the service, including children, will be very welcome. The service includes an opportunity to remember people by name and to light a candle as a symbol of our love for them. We will also have hymns and short readings. We do hope you will be able to join us and we look forward to welcoming you: if you would like a name read out on the day, please add this to the form at the back of church.
Can you help: all Souls Service
After the service we have tea and cakes. We are looking for a couple of volunteers to make a cake, please contact Maureen Barnard if you are able to help. 07541 721440

So many people were licensed and commissioned, at a service at Winchester Cathedral on Saturday 13th October – including our very own Paul and Sandy from our church!
Sandy and Paul are grateful for the support of all in our congregation: every one of us can spread God’s word, but we can only truly succeed with the support we offer one another.
