A Lenten Service and Lunch will be held in St Mark's Church,
Ballymacash, next Sunday morning at 11.00am. This annual event
is an important part of the work and witness at St Mark's during
the season of Lent. Those attending the lunch are expected to
donate at least the cost of a Sunday lunch and proceeds will be
divided between the Crossroads Care Attendant Scheme and two
overseas mission projects. The two overseas mission projects
supported directly by St Mark's are the Anglican Seminary of St.
John the Evangelist in Kitwe, Zambia and the Sinikithemba
project in Grahamstown, South Africa, which provides hospitality
to 40 people who are HIV positive.
The Rector, the Rev Canon George Irwin, will lead the service
and the special guests will be the Right Worshipful the Mayor -
Councillor Trevor Lunn and the Mayoress - Mrs Laureen Lunn who
are currently visiting many churches in the Lisburn City Council
