Brunch
We will be celebrating the Queen’s jubilee AND Pentecost!

Explorers
Nikki and Pete Luther, our Explorer leaders, have asked me to find someone to help out on 2nd and/or 4th Sundays with one, and sometimes, two sets of 2 year old twins whilst they teach the other children.  Everyone would be in the coffee lounge together but it is just that the needs of 2 year olds are very different from the older children.  Please get in touch with me if you can help.

Marks Brothers
The Marks Brothers will be meeting on Tuesday 14th in order to put the world to rights.  If you have never been before, please come to the coffee lounge for 10am – you will be very welcome.

Elephant Club
We have been having a lot of fun at Elephant Club recently and have decided to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to spend a social afternoon visiting memory lane and eating cake.  The next meeting will be on Thursday 9th 2-4pm at St Mark’s – if you need a lift, please get in touch with me.

Little Lions
There won’t be any Little Lions during half-term but it will resume on Wednesday 8th 10-11.30am.  Sadly one of our helpers is moving and so we are looking for someone to help out on Wednesday mornings.  If you like small children, have a listening ear for parents and (the icing on the cake) like doing craft, please get in touch.

Coffee morning
We are restarting the coffee mornings.  The first one will take place on Tuesday 28th starting at 10am.  If you need a lift, please can you get in touch.

Funeral of Carol Russell
Many people in the congregation will have known Carol – she was a lovely lady with an incredible faith.  Her funeral will take place at St Mark’s on Tuesday 7th at 11.30am.  There will be a short service at the Crematorium (12.45 ) and you are invited to the Woodmans Arms.

Deanery Re-organisation
The Diocese is continuing to move at snail’s pace but we have made good progress with Whippingham and East Cowes.  

Enjoy the sunshine – it will be Christmas before you know it!
