Year 7 visit to St Mark’s

Today we welcomed year 7 from Teddington School to look around the church.

 

Messy Church

Our first ever Messy Church was on the theme of light and colour. We made candle holders, coloured in pictures and started to make a rainbow. We all learnt a new song called ‘Shine!’ Our next service is on the 12th March and this time we are exploring the theme of seeds and growing.

Christmas at St Mark’s

Candle lit Carols

This year we risked complete darkness (except for the choir who needed to see their music) and sang our carols by candlelight only. Ian took some photos so that you can see how it all looked. Mince pies, mulled wine and biscuits were enjoyed afterwards.

Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve we have a Crib Service at 5pm where the children help to make the crib scene. We sing carols and hear the story of the first Christmas. It is a very popular service so come early to get a good seat!

At 11.30pm on Christmas Eve we celebrate the first communion of Christmas. This is a quiet and reflective service with traditional carols, communion and a short sermon. The service will last around an hour.

Candlelit Carol Service

On Thursday the 22nd of December at 6.30pm we will have our annual candlelit carol service. We will sing carols entirely by candlelight, hear the Christmas story and some poetry. There will be mince pies and mulled wine afterwards. A lovely way to start the Christmas season. We are on St Mark’s Road TW11 9DE and minutes from the 281/285 St Mark’s Road bus stop. Everyone is welcome.
