Building work at St Mark’s Church

It has been planned for years but the day has arrived. Building work has started to create a community hub at St Mark’s. The back rooms have been cleared and work has started to create a hatchway into the church.

The church will be closed during the week. Sunday services, evening hires and the hall are not affected.

The hatch from the new kitchen into the church is in progress.

Angels flown…

We hope you enjoyed finding angels on trees, bushes and a trough around Teddington yesterday. Now to get on with the sheep for the Crib Service!

Christmas Angels

The angels are ready to fly onto hedges and walls around the parish to bring a message of love and hope this Christmas. Look out for them and tweet a photo at @StMarksTW11 if you spot one and take it home.

Dance

Last weekend St Mark’s hosted a dance course where 35 dancers from around the world came to Teddington to learn circle dances from ‘The Creation’ by Nanni Kloke. Judy King taught the dances and Revd Karen worked with the dancers to connect their stories with the story they were dancing. We then danced part of the cycle at St Paul’s Cathedral and then the whole cycle at the chapel of Kings College London.

It was a remarkable experience. If you want to learn more about circle dance and go on one of Judy’s courses contact Judy at www.judyking.co.uk

To find out more about dance as contemplative prayer contact Revd Karen revkarenwellman@btinternet.com
