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

Would I be missed!

Many people today have grown up not attending church regularly. We all know the changes that have affected the way we live and work – shift work patterns, Sunday shopping etc etc the list is endless.

the church, and this applies to St Mark’s, will only survive if people care enough not only to support it financially, but also by attending and taking part in the every day life of the parish. Everyone who claims St Mark’s as their church has a seat set aside for them and they have the choice of using it or not. St Mark’s has plenty of seats; about 500 of them so don’t feel there will be no room for you. Below is the average attendance at services during October 2014

Morning Service – 34
Evening Service  – 18

During December will YOU use your seat – YOU will be missed!
