Christmas Services at St Marks

"Frequently we are so concerned about all the new things we receive at Christas that we sometimes forget Jesus is the reason for this celebration. I encourage you all to take time over the Christmas season to ponder on His great love for us and be thankful that He came so we might live. Have a joyful Christmas!"

Revd Martin Colson, Vicar of St Mark's.

Full details of our Christmas services are now available on the website. New for this year, children (and adults if they wish!) are being encouraged to come to the Crib and Christingle service on Christmas Eve dresssed as a character or animal from the Nativity Story.

You can also find details of the charities we will be supporting with our Christmas collections. This year they are the Renewed Hope Trust (for whom we are also hosting a number of winter night shelters for the homeless over December and January - if you can help, please contact Nigel Perkins via the office), the Children's society, Reigate Women's refuge and Reigate Samaritans.

Lastly, we will also be sending our travelling crib around the parish in the run up to Christmas eve. Please look out for them on their travels. Hopefully, the host families will share some of their pictures on our Facebook page as they did last year. (Here is a link to the album from 2016.)
