To St Mark's & All Saints' Churches West Parley
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING SERVICES AT ST MARK'S FROM OCTOBER
From October, on the 2nd Sunday of the month we will hold a Breakfast @ NINE Service at St. Mark’s. After the 8 o’clock Holy Communion breakfast will be served in the Church Hall – cereal, toast, croissant, boiled egg - culminating in a short act of worship focussed around the telling of a Bible story with two simple hymns and brief prayers. The Parish Eucharist will follow but 15 minutes later than usual so that both Breakfast and Service are not unduly rushed. After further discussion the PCC agreed that to avoid confusion, from the beginning of October the Parish Eucharist will be at a new time of 10 o’clock on each Sunday of the month yet aiming to finish no later than 11.00. The Breakfast Service will be publicised throughout September and families with whom we have made connections especially through baptisms will be specifically invited.
St. Mark’s and All Saints are churches rooted in the traditions of the Church of England. Services are formal in structure yet relaxed in character and seek to reveal something of the majesty and mystery of God.
Teaching and preaching aims to make fruitful connections between personal experience and the wisdom of the faith. Acknowledging life’s dilemmas we dwell on the compassion of Christ and rejoice in the belief that the glory of God is a human being fully alive.
A welcome is extended to all regardless of age, orientation, or the degree of active commitment that can be made.
If it is your first visit and would like help with the service, please ask the sidesperson as they hand you your Hymn book as you come in.
