Anne’s licencing for Hordle Parish

Thank you to all who supported Anne at her final service and following farewell tea, on Sunday 12th January and you’re invited to add to your diary a date for the licensing service for Anne’s new role! This will take place on Sunday 9th February at 4pm, to be held at All Saints Church, Hordle. 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.


Are these long cold dark January evenings making you feel a bit gloomy?  One of our congregation Pam  may have an answer. Pam has been given some beautiful 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzles in excellent condition to sell in aid of St Marks Church. If you are interested please contact Pam on 01590 672628.

Bill Raven’s funeral

As many are aware, a regular at our 8am service, Bill, passed away on Sunday afternoon. His daughter Fiona writes:

We were so glad we were able to nurse him at home until the end of his life. Dad’s funeral is at Test Valley Crematorium on Thursday 6th February at 10am, should anyone from the congregation wish to attend. Thank you to all the 8am church family for being part of Dad’s life since he moved to Lymington in 2013”.

Pancake Party!

Fun for every one of every age, come and join us at the St Mark’s Community Hall on Tuesday 25th February from 3:30pm!

Pancakes – with all your favourite toppings (we think lemon juice and sugar is best – keep it simple!) – and other refreshments on hand too.

Can you help on the afternoon? Please speak with either Eve or Erica in church!

If you can ensure your completed items are delivered to church or one of the village collection points by the 15th March, we can ensure a splash of Easter colour can warm even the coldest spring day!
