Advent and Christmas at St Mark’s – Welcome!

We have some beautiful activities arranged for Advent and Christmas this year.

Obviously things are constantly changing but below you will find information about the services we have planned, please keep checking back and contact the office ( if you’d like more information.

We are still hoping to be able to hold services in the church building after the end of November; please keep checking this page which we will update as guidance changes.  All services will be available to log into via Zoom (whether we are able to be in the church building or not) – if you’d like to join us please email the office.

Each week of Advent we will be focusing on a different theme: HOPE, LOVE, JOY, PEACE and for Christmas Day: PRESENCE.

A new candle will be lit in church each Sunday morning and remain lit in the windows facing the Green throughout Advent.  Come and see them! 

We’ve put together a collection of Advent Resources for you and your family to get involved in; please do take a look at the page – we’d love to see what you create, email photographs to the office and we’ll feature them in the weekly newsletter.

We are also creating a Festival of Light on the Green, and asking you to contribute; ideas and instructions will be added to this page regularly – keep checking back.
