St Mark’s Invites you to a Ladies Evening – SMILE

SMILE is an evening for ladies only, with no need to spend a lot of money, wear expensive clothes or stay late. The evening starts at 8pm in St Mark’s Church hall and lasts until the last person needs to leave or the conversation has run its course. Coffee and tea and refreshments are available but participants are also invited to bring their own. The evening is a great favourite, a time to socialise without the constraints of children or pressures of more formal establishments. A vast variety of subjects are discussed, problems solved, jokes told, a generally fun and relaxed evening.

WHEN: 2nd Tuesday each month at 8pm

WHERE: St Mark’s Church Hall

St Mark’s Sanctuary Guild

A quiet band of people form the Sanctuary Guild. The little jobs that are never seen being done, a few of the big jobs which take a few hours but no one quite knows who does them, are probably done by a member of the sanctuary guild. A number of members clean the church each week on a rota basis, cleverly organised and self-running according to various demands. The altar cloths, brasses, flower arrangements, candles, cleaning steps, gardening, even picking up the moss that falls from the roof, all these jobs are undertaken by members of the Sanctuary Guild. New members are always welcomed.
