Today sees the start of Christian Aid Week, and to get the fundraising activites off to a fine start, St Mark's hosted an evening of 'Words and Music' yesterday evening. Organised by Jane Lewis and a band of merry helpers, we enjoyed a fine evening of poetry, sketches and singing from the St Mark's and URC Choirs. Final numbers to be confirmed, but the total amount raised looks to exceed £700 (including Gift Aid). Many thanks to all the performers and supporters. You can find out more about the work of Christian Aid here.

Today we held our Annual Church Meeting at St Mark's where we reviewed our annual report (see here). There was much to give thanks for from the past year - Jubilee celebrations, the success of the Merton Night Shelter and the appointment of our new Youth & Children's Worker Bethan Jenkins. We celebrated with a bring and share lunch afterwards. We look forward to the coming year and all it brings.
