On Thursday June 20th at 7:30pm the Beaulieu Warblers will make a return visit to St Mark’s to present their summer concert ‘Midsummer Dreams’. Tickets at £7.50, to include refreshments on the evening – available on the door or through St Mark’s Church before the event.
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.
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!
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 24th June at 11:00am Monday, in St Mark’s room – and evening sessions running on Wednesdays from 7pm! All welcome.
Children’s Society Service
On Sunday 23rd June, St Mark’s are hosting a service to celebrate the work of the Children’s Society – if you’ve been collecting through the year in one of their charity boxes, do please bring this along to our Morning Praise service.
