St Mark’s Day – Celebrated on Sunday 22nd of April This year we will celebrate our Patron Saint with a Parish Communion at the 10.30 a.m. service. Those who were confirmed earlier in April are warmly invited to receive holy communion together with their families and the wider church community at this service.
At the end of this service we will announce the winner of the Lion competition. All children are welcome to enter into this competition. The rules are simple. Create a Lion. You may draw, paint, build a model, use clay or textile… The piece of art can be two or three dimensional. Use your imagination. Could the participants please bring their entries to church the Sunday before (15th of April) or leave them in the Parish Office no later than on Wednesday the 18th of April (opening times: Monday – Wednesday – Friday 9.00 a.m. – 12 noon) so two of our local artists will have time to judge them before the service. The art will be exhibited in church on St Mark’s day.
