Your April Magazine is here

Easter is around the corner, that glorious season of hope and light as we celebrate the Resurrection of Christ, and this month’s magazine is full of Easter promise.

Scroll through the pages and you will find details of our Holy Week services and Easter itself, along with our Easter Experience in the churchyard at St John’s.

There is plenty more inside the magazine too. Scroll through to read a reflection from our LLM Craig on suffering; then read news from John Innes from Wiltshire; make a note for your diary for Campfire – our storytelling event – on 8th and the Barn Dance on 9th. There is a confirmation in the Cathedral on Easter Saturday, just after our Craft Market, and lots more.

Enjoy your magazine and may you have a blessed Easter.

Your March magazine is here

Spring is here and so is the March magazine, full of news and events across the parish.

This month we head into Lent and there is a chance to sign up for Lent groups which will be held in person and on Zoom. The theme is forgiveness and you can find out more about the subject in Lesley’s ministry letter.

Also prominent this month is the parish’s part in the first Farnham Literary Festival. St Mark’s is the only north Farnham venue and will be hosting several workshops, a rehearsed reading by the Farnham Theatre Association, and the awards ceremonies for both the Farnham Poetry Competition and the Farnham Short Story Competition.

Then there is news from local groups, plans for Easter, prayer, plans for a Barn Dance, words from our MP, a cat or two and much, much more.
