Good Friday Family Activity Service (advance notice)
We are planning to hold a service for families with plenty for the children to do on Good Friday morning at St Mark’s.

Easter Sunday
Rev Len Fox has very kindly agreed to take the Easter Sunday service at St Mark’s.
I’m afraid I don’t have any further details yet for April.

Questionnaire
A questionnaire asking for your opinions is being circulated by paper (there will be paper copies in the churches) and on-line.  The PCC needs to make some decisions about the changes we made in order to cope with the covid regulations.  You may feel some of these were good changes and you would like to keep them, others you may want to stop doing and go back to how we did things before. The PCC is meeting on 23rd March so it would be very useful to have your opinions before then.

Proposed plurality with Whippingham and East Cowes
We have had two meetings now and things are going well so far.  There will come a point when the plurality with Binstead and Havenstreet has to be dissolved before we can move forward with the new plurality but we haven’t reached that point yet.  There is, however, quite a lot of co-operation going on between the parishes already!

Date for your diary
Another chance to come to the APCM – Weds 27th April.  If you are having trouble sleeping, this could be for you!
