THE HUB – We are very grateful to those who faithfully give up their time each week to man the Hub. This has proved to be a vital service in the outreach and work of the church. However, not every day is covered and so we are making an appeal to anyone who can give up a morning (10 am to 12 noon) to man the Hub. This can be weekly, monthly or even just when you are available. If you can help, the rota can be found on the office window.

PRAYER REQUEST CARDS are available in the pews as well as at the Prayer Tree. Please feel free to make use of these at any time.

THANK YOU – a big thank you to all those who contributed food to the Food Bank as part of our Harvest Thanksgiving Service. The food collected at Harvest and throughout the year go to support the work of St. Mark’s Food bank.

WANTED! TOAST RACKS! – Now Christmas is over I’m sure some of you very organised people will be ‘Spring Cleaning’. If you are, and come across a TOAST RACK that you would like to ‘re-home’ we, here in the church would love to have it to use in our annual ‘Breakfasts’. Please leave any donations in the church kitchen. Elizabeth J.
