St Mark's Fun Day

Parents, children and grandparents enjoyed a fun filled afternoon at St. Mark’s Church on Sunday 6th November. The day allowed the community to enjoy quizzes, face paints and food and entertainment and find out what’s happening in their local church. The entertainment for the day was provided by A.C.T. the drama group that runs in the church. Many users of the building such as ACME and TANGO helped and promoted the work they do within the building. The funds raised from the day will help to finish our baptismal area making it more welcoming for families. Watch out for our Christmas schedule and Spring Raffle.
