    Harvest Thanksgiving
    We are delighted to be joining with Holy Trinity Theale this Harvest time in contributing to the West Berks Foodbank and CIRDIC (Churches in Reading Drop in Centre). Boxes will be left at the back of St Mark’s for your contributions which will then be delivered in liaison with Holy Trinity.
    Non-perishable items only this year, please. Items needed include tinned vegetables, chilli mix, soup, instant mash, tinned potatoes, baked beans, shampoo, cleaning products; and urgent requests include sponge puddings, custard, sugar, tinned fruit, rice pudding.
    Please bring and leave your gifts any day or time (the church is open between 10am and 4pm) until Tuesday 13th October. Thank you.

     

    Sermon series:
    Confronted with the pandemic, we are prompted to ask, 'where is God in a coronavirus world?' You may find help and hope in a book of that title by Professor John Lennox (£2.54, The Good Book Company). Faced by perplexing and painful questions, many are prompted to pray but are uncertain how or what to pray and, in this unsettling situation, we are using a book entitled '5 Things to Pray in a Global Crisis' by Rachel Jones as the basis for our current sermon series. You can order this from www.eden.co.uk or 0800 612 2186 (£2.79). For more information contact Nick Wynne-Jones. 

     

    Help at home:
    Please let Nick or the churchwardens know if you are in need of help in any way. There is a St Mark's contact list of volunteers who are happy to shop, collect medication, walk a dog or have a chat over the phone - you only have to ask! Call Nick on 0118 9303595 or Carol on 0118 9303182 or Torquil on 0118 9714536 and they will put you in touch with someone who can help.
