Collect of St Mark

Almighty God who has instructed your Holy Church with the heavenly doctrine of your Evangelist St Mark. Give us grace, that, not being like children carried away with every blast of vain doctrine, we may be established in the truth of your holy Gospel, through Jesus Christ our Lord

Amen

Parish Missionary Group Notes

Members of the Parish Missionary Group offer sincere thanks for all the support received from many of St Mark’s people who worked for and supported the recent May Fair. On a lovely evening the Church hall looked most attractive with all the stalls laden with a good variety of items to sell and games to play. Teas were attractively laid out and there were many contented customers although numbers of shoppers were fewer probably as a result of other outings.

The total proceeds however, for the evening, were more than the previous year at £1466.00 – the best for many years.

We wish, therefore, to say a BIG thank you to everyone who worked for the stalls or games or the teas as well as for donations and to our most generous chemist,Fergus Hamilton following in his father’s footsteps in providing many items for sale. We missed our rector the Revd Robin Moore, but thank him for his support throughout the year in our meetings and wish him well with a speedy recovery and better health in the future.
