There are a number of single parents in Bracknell who are unlikely to receive Christmas presents this year. Many parents ensure that their children have a great Christmas, but often go without themselves. We would like to change that. By working with the family intervention team, we are asking if you would like to buy an extra gift for a single parent. This year we are hoping to give presents to 20 single mums and 15 single dads. If you would like to contribute, then we recommend gifts up to the value of £15.00.
We will be collecting these from Sunday 20th November – Sunday 11th December. They can either be given to Luke in church, dropped off at the church office or left on the bench outside the front door of the Rectory.
Reflections on a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Cooking for Silver Service
After an incredible 16 years, Jane Aylwin has decided to step down from preparing and cooking meals for Silver Service every month. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Jane for her energy, enthusiasm, and dedication to Silver Service.
From January 2023 we need a volunteer to cook a main course for up to 30 people (or two people to share and cook for 15 people each) for the fourth Tuesday every other month. It’s best to cook the food at home and take it along to St. Mark’s church for 12 noon. A £30 budget for food will be provided.
If you are interested in helping, please contact Margareta Hawkins on 01344 411 681
Please pray and consider if you can help in one of the following ways, serving coffee after the service, reading in church, leading the prayers, or helping with the chalice at communion. If you would like to help in any of the above areas, please let Hayley know. No previous experience is needed.
