Sunday the 8th November is Remembrance Sunday – and for our 10am service today St Mark’s and St Thomas remember the fallen in conflict with a pre-recorded act of remembrance at the Pennington war memorial.
Notices for Sunday 17th November, with details of our upcoming services and events – with some thoughts for your diary as December is around the corner!
As 11am approaches, a short service by the war memorial takes place at St Mark’s. We honour the dead, of all sides in conflict – remembering the sacrifices made by others for our freedoms today.
Faced with all the evil in the world, and all that is going wrong, do we just feel powerless? What can we do about Syria, Iraq, Iran – and conflicts here and now in the western hemisphere? But we can – in our own lives – strive to live in a different way. We can because we are the body of Christ and through Christ can strive towards all that builds peace.
Notices for Sunday 10th November, as we remember the fallen through war and conflict since the first world war.
Our work with the community in Pennington and beyond made the local BBC news! Our thanks to BBC South Today for sharing our story with the region.
November – and St Mark’s are looking to Remembrance
Pennington Poppies are back! People from across our communities have been hard at work knitting and crocheting poppies. Revd Rachel Noël, the Priest-in-Charge at St Mark’s Church Pennington, appealed to the whole community to get involved. So far, almost 2,000 poppies have been made this year by people across the community, from the church, the WI, the bingo ladies at Pennington Sports & Social Club, local care homes, and many others – these will be added to the 2,000 that had already been made last year!
