Lenten lunch at St Mark's supports local and overseas mission projects

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 area.
