The #75MemorialFlames project by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust has enabled groups like ours, from around the UK, to learn from the past and commemorate the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. It’s so important to stand together against hatred and division.
A selection of photographs taken in the run up to Advent 2019. Thank you to all who help St Mark’s do all we do – we’re proud of our church but it’s our congregation that make St Mark’s what it is!
Celebrating Woodside Singers 40th anniversary and including favourites from Oliver, the Sound of Music, Oklahoma and more, the Woodside Singers entertained a packed St Mark’s on a sunny autumn afternoon!
On the 6th October, St Mark’s celebrated harvest! With a service that included a focus on the hard but important work of fair trade organisations, the grateful donations of food and house hold goods for New Forest Basics Bank and a lunch catered for by the excellent staff of Lanes of Lymington!
In the Autumn we aim, with the help of the Community, to spend a day giving the churchyard an extra clear up – covering more areas than our monthly helpers can manage. Our sincere thanks to all who assisted in with refreshments and those who flexed their muscles, to clear away weeds, brambles and bushes that have taken root through the churchyard!
A few from our congregation recently took part in Ride and Stride. An annual charity event in support of the Hampshire and the Islands Historic Churches trust (www.hihct.org.uk), it encourages participants to travel to churches and chapels across the region.
