St Mark's News and Events
We were delighted to hear this weekend that Clare Coates, our Children and Families worker has been accepted for ordination training by the Diocese of Ely. This demanding post is obviously a good training ground, as Clare has followed in the steps of Anne Strauss and Emma Hopegood who left the same or similar posts for the same good reason. Clare will be with us for the next few months before she embarks on her ordination course.
St Mark's Day was celebrated in fine style within the Community Centre on Saturday 22 April with a Parish Gala Dinner: three courses with wine, much enjoyed by 50 parishioners (many thanks to Sue Wagner and her catering team.)
Our after dinner speaker was the Revd Mike Thompson, associate Principal of Ridley Hall Theological College, who gave a witty account of his arrival from the USA to Newnham. Here after a spell in Archway Court, he moved into our flat above the hall and this was his home for several years. While at St Mark's then he ran the hugely successful youth club, which is still fondly remembered by the grown up children of our now older members of the congregation. A tremendous evening.
