Vigil for Remembrance Day

On the 10th November at 6.30pm there will be a short vigil for Remembrance Sunday and 100th anniversary of the end of the first world world war. The vigil will feature poetry, music and memories of relatives who lived through the war.

The silhouette is in memory of Bill Harris whose name is on the memorial board in the chapel at St Mark’s. The names of those who died are read out at the main Sunday service at 10am on 11th November.

Halloween

At Halloween hardy volunteers from St Mark’s handed out sweets, candied eyeballs and snakes to children trick or treating in St Marks Road Teddington. All the treats were gone by 7pm so we need to make sure we have more next year!

Halloween Sweets

Last year St Mark’s braved the cold and the dark and the fearsome trick or treaters and handed out sweets from the church gate to ghouls and witches and monsters. This year we are back from about 5.30-7.30pm with a fearsome selection of All Hallows Eve sweets and goodies. Come and find us and show off your costumes!

Full of Life Fair

Churches in the Richmond Borough offer lots of activities for older people and our vicar Revd Karen was at the Full of Life Fair at Twickenham Stadium on the 26th October to promote that work. It was very busy as information was shared, jam was given and the there was an opportunity to have a hand massage from Tina at Embracing Age. St Mark’s church has a coffee morning on Wednesdays in the small hall from around 10.30am, a Grandparent’s Group and a Memory Cafe. Contact us for more details.

 

Remembrance Day Services

This year is the 100th anniversary of the ending of the 1st world war. To mark this we are having a short vigil service from 6.30pm to around 7.30pm on the 10th November with readings and poetry.

On Sunday we will be holding our usual Sunday service at 10am where the names of those who died in the parish in the two world wars are read out and there will be a two minute silence at 11am.

On the afternoon of the 11th November our Messy Church will be on a theme of remembering those we love. There will be craft activities for children and the a story, some songs and of course lots of cake. All welcome from 2.30-4pm
