We had a wonderful thanksgiving Service for Lily Robinson's life last Friday. A great celebration of faith and new life in Christ.
Here is the video for those who sadly were unable to join us.
European Mission Fellowship have set up a fund to help refugees from Ukraine.
This money goes directly to Ukrainian church or those in surrounding countries that are receiving refugees (Poland, Romania, Moldova) - all explained here, along with suggestions for prayer, on this link.
This video post helps to answer the question "How can we pray for Ukraine?"
The funeral for Lily Robinson will be at St. Mark's Church at 12.15pm on Friday 4th March.
All are welcome to give thanks for Lily's life and celebrate her 90 years lived amongst us.

The Bishop of Carlisle has filmed a special message of thanksgiving for Her Majesty The Queen as she marks the 70th anniversary of her accession to the throne (Sunday 6 February).
In his message, filmed at Bishop‘s House in Keswick, the Rt Rev James Newcome draws on the Queen‘s strong spirituality and faith and the tremendous service she has offered during her reign.
Bishop James says: "This year we celebrate the 70th year of her Accession to the Throne. She has served longer than any other Monarch in this country, and the steadfastness she has found in God‘s love has been abundantly evident in her throughout her extraordinary reign."

Inline with the lifting of government restrictions, from Sunday 30th January 2022 the requirement to wear a face covering at all times whilst in the building has been removed but a face covering will continue to be worn when moving around the building and singing. We will be able to remove them whilst seated.
More chairs have been put out and so those who feel more vulnerable should be able to social distance easily.
