ST MARK’S FINANCES  Our target is £10k and we have had £6k promised so far.  Thank you to all who have returned pledge forms.  Unfortunately we have lost some generous regular givers this year so we still have some way to go to cover our costs.  The CofE suggests that we give 5% of our annual income to the church. Please help us to be the kind of church we value.  Thank you! Clergy & Finance Team

DONATIONS can now also be given by text. To do this send a text to 70070 Text the word ‘STMK10’ followed by the amount you’d like to donate – eg. STMK10 £2  or STMK10 £5  or STMK10 £10 You can add gift aid by following the instructions in the text receipt. Thank you.
