Coronavirus:

'Have no fear, for I have redeemed you,

I call you by name; you are mine'  Isaiah 43:1

As you may have heard the Church of England have suspended all public worship services. This means we are no longer having any services for the forseeable future including Sunday services, weddings & baptisms. However, the funerals will still happen, but please talk to the funeral director about the restrictions in place.

Please, do look out for your neighbours, especially those who live alone and may not have many people to support them if they have to self-isolate.

Live streaming services

Those who would like to can watch live streams of Sunday services from a range of traditions (links provided by the C of E website). Please click on one

St Mark's Project Update

Over the last 18 months we have been working hard at making plans for the refurbishment of St Marks, doing surveys and getting quotes. We had planned to launch our fundraising appeal at the end of March, however with Covid-19 this has not been possible and with so many people struggling financially it would be wrong at this time to launch a fundraiser for a building.  However, we wanted to update people about the 

refurbishment, and the response to the consultation, so we have updated the website with key information. If people want to give it will be very welcome, but we know (and hope) that many will be giving to more urgent needs at this time.

To see some of the changes we've made and to download the new plans please click on the project page below.

Aim: £280,000

Amount raised* so far… 

£115,650   

               

Still to go... £165,000

* Includes gifts, pledges and standing orders

If you are ready to give we prefer you do so by bank transfer or monthly Standing Order. Our bank 

Sort code is: 55-81-26  & the Account no.: 00336122.

Please use “St Marks” & your surname as the reference. 

You can also click the give here button, through give.com, however, they charge a 3% fee for their admin.

On behalf of the parish of St. Luke’s and St. Mark’s Winchester, we invite you most warmly to step over our virtual threshold.  

You will find within our website details of services and future events, plus contact details for the churches.

We are the parish church for everyone in Stanmore, Oliver’s Battery, Badgers Farm, Winchester Village and the roads around Kings School. Please see our events calendar for everything that is happening.

 

Whatever you seek – friendship, community, something to challenge and stretch you, something to give you comfort and peace, the love of Jesus Christ, or simply the satisfaction of curiosity – you are most welcome to step over our physical threshold too and see what we have to offer.  

Yours in Christ, Revd. Ed Dines and Revd. Mike Gardner
