Anne’s last day

The paperwork is now complete, and we can confirm that Rev’d Anne Elliott’s last service in St Mark’s Church Pennington will be Sunday 12th January at 9:30am.

Later that day, we will have a farewell afternoon tea in St Mark’s Community Hall from 3pm – all are welcome. The licensing service for Anne’s new role will take place on Sunday 9th February at 4pm, to be held at All Saints Church, Hordle.

Please support and encourage Anne as she prepares to finish her ministry in this place, and to offer her skills, passions and strengths to the community at Tiptoe. We are so grateful for all the work that she has done, and delighted that a nearby community will be able to benefit from her ministry too.
