The church has now reopened for worship on Sunday and Thursday mornings.  We are also continuing to relay the service live on Zoom on Sunday mornings.

As restrictions are slowly lifted we are looking at how we might safely resume some of our other activities.

HARVEST FESTIVAL Sunday 4th October is our Harvest festival at St Mark's. If you are planning to attend the service on Sunday at 10am you can bring your donations with you. You can also join the service on Zoom.  Email for more details

SHOEBOX APPEAL 2020
It's time to start thinking about packing a shoebox for the Blythswood Care shoebox appeal.
Blythswood deliver shoeboxes packed for people of all ages.  Here you can find a checklist of the sort of things which they welcome in the boxes.
You can pack a shoebox, or if you are having a problem sourcing an empty shoebox this year then please use a drawstring bag (no plastic ones please) instead. Maximum size 500mm x 300mm. 

There are a leaflets and a few empty shoeboxes in the welcome area of the church, but if you are struggling to find a shoebox or would like more information ring Gill Keens on 01737 353953. We expect our boxes will be collected on November 8th.
Blythswood is a Christian charity, with a mission to transform lives through the impact of education, community action and gospel activities. You can find out more about them and watch videos of the shoebox appeal on their website https://blythswood.org
