This year's Christian Aid concert on 17th May was another resounding success. Everyone enjoyed a great mixture of words and music with good food and wine, served in candlelight. Very many thanks to all those who performed and the great team who helped set up and clear up the hall. The final figure of the proceeds is yet to be verified but it looks as though we have cleared £850, after expenses, thanks to the generosity of the audience and those unable to attend who donated the following morning.

Wishing one and all a very Happy Easter.
Holy Week was busy at St Mark's with a whole variety of services held throughout the week to cater for a wide range of ages, from all-age multi-sensory to a contemplative Mass of the Dawn for early risers at 05:30 today. The church was prepared on Saturday with a large number of remembrance lilies, bought by members of the congregation.

Our children and young people recently enjoyed a fabulous, fun-packed weekend away at Carrotty Wood! They enjoyed tackling the high ropes course (some more than others!) and the assault course and had a great time toasting marshmallows and playing games around our campfire. They had a fantastic time together learning more about what it means to follow Jesus and went home with new friends and lots of muddy washing! Thank you to our leaders who were amazing. Looking forward to doing it all again next year!

This week saw a busy schedule for the groups that happen outside of our Sunday worship.
Wednesday saw our Film Club meet after lunchtime communion to view Philomena, with of course, tea and cakes. Our Film Club has become really popular, watching a variety of films including Anna Karenina, Argo, Up! and Skyfall to name a few. Film Club is held at 2pm on the first Wednesday of each month (except August and January).

The Merton Night Shelter starts at St Mark's Hall on Saturday 7th December and runs for seven Saturdays until the middle of January 2014. Fourteen venues throughout Wimbledon open up their halls to provide shelter throughout the winter months. Not only does the shelter provide food and a warm, safe place to sleep, but it also helps with finding a permanent place for our guests to live. Over 350 volunteers are helping to man the shelters, and provide evening and morning meals. Many thanks to all our volunteers, including The Alexandra pub which has offered to cater for two of our seven nights, and Jane Long who is co-ordinating the shelter for St Mark's.
