Kim’s first service leading communion

As you know, Kim is being priested on Saturday 2nd July at Winchester Cathedral. On the Sunday morning (3rd) we will be gathering together as a parish for a celebration service as she presides at communion for the first time- 10.30am at St Mark’s and online.

This will be the joint service for July (which we have moved forward from the end of the month as there are five Sundays) and there will be no other services that day. We really hope that you will be able to join us to worship together and to celebrate this next step in Kim’s journey in ministry in our parish.

The service will be followed by a ‘bring and share’ parish lunch and we’ll be asking you to indicate if you are able to come and whether you are bringing savoury or sweet food to share. We will also be joined by some of Kim’s wider family.

You were very generous in giving towards a gift for Kim’s ordination last year- we would like to get her something small to mark her priesting and if you would like to contribute towards this you can:

  1. donate via PGS (please make our Treasurer Christopher Owens aware that the one-off change to your monthly amount is for this purpose)
  2. use bank transfer (Christopher can supply you with the relevant bank details)
  3. drop a cheque or cash at the church office or in the church post box in an envelope clearly marked Priesting donation
