As we prepare to enter Holy Week, we recognise that this is a different walk through Holy Week than we had been expecting! We are delighted that Bishop Debbie will still be joining us in the parishes of Lymington and Pennington this season, albeit virtually.
Normally, we’d be handing out a Palm Cross for you to take away with you, at our Sunday services this weekend – unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus lockdown, we’re unable to see you in church. Instead, Rachel and Peter, from St Mark’s and St Thomas churches respectively, have some ideas as to how you can make your own for this Sunday!
A first for St Mark’s: service given from the upstairs spare bedroom of the vicarage (can we say an upper room?) Working with our neighbours at St Thomas’ in Lymington, Rachel talks about breathing, change – and her new pet caterpillars…
We are in unprecedented times, and we are all trying to adjust to the new situation in which we find ourselves.
Notices from St Mark’s for the 29th March
March and we’re looking towards Easter – and plans are afoot to decorate our hedge for the season!
Knitted and crocheted flowers in response to COVID-19 – the first part of our Easter display along the hedge of St Mark’s, which – in response to the escalating situation with the Coronavirus pandemic – has a clear message for the village of Pennington. Physically separated, we’re still united in spirit and under the loving grace of God.
Our live streamed service from Sunday 22nd March
