"Merry Christmas" from St. Mark's PCC

The PCC of St. Mark's Church, Flecknoe, would like to wish everyone a merry, peaceful Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!

Following Rev'd Beth Smith's retirement as vicar last Christmas, 2005 has been a year of change for our little church, and indeed for the whole Leam Valley Benefice. Now Rev'd Bill Griffiths has announced that he too will be leaving the benefice within the next six months, and difficult circumstances mean that we have not yet been able to enter into proper discussions about re-drawing the benefice boundaries and joining with Dunchurch.

In spite of all this, services will be continuing as normal at St. Mark's for the foreseeable future, with a Family Service on the first Sunday of the month and Holy Communion on the third Sunday. However, those of you planning to celebrate New Year in the traditional manner will be relieved to know there will be no service on Sunday 1st January!

Following our Christmas Day service at 10.30am, services will begin again on Sunday January 15th with Holy Communion at St. Marks -- everyone welcome, as always!
