VILLAGE CAFÉ

Our Village Café is now back, meeting in the Vestry Hall on Fridays from 10am until 11.45am, where you can enjoy cakes and coffee, and meet new people for a chat.

Because of its popularity  we always need more people to help run this event! If you feel you could take an occasional turn on the rota please contact Heather Ferguson-Gow on 01622 832733

As yet the Community Lunches are still not running, but we hope it won't be too long until they  can resume.

CRAFT GROUP

The Craft group is meeting on 2nd and 4th Mondays every month and new members are always welcome. Bring along any craft you are interested in and get creative in company. Sometimes we have a joint project, but we are always interested in new ideas and ventures. Simply bring your knitting if that is what floats your boat - and enjoy company and tea whilst you create.

This group is designed to help those living with memory loss. We have a lovely group of volunteers from our community to help us.

Marden is a lively branch, committed to serving the Church and the community, in the diocese and with worldwide links.

We continue to serve the Church and Parish community wherever we can help.  This includes Baptism Sponsorship,  Community Lunches and Friday Cafe.  Outside the village, members are active in support of Operation Sunshine, 'Away from It all' Holidays,  and fundraising for Mothers' Union work overseas. We meet monthly, generally on a Wednesday lunchtime/evening - dates, times and venues published in the Magazine and Notice Sheet.

FLOWER ARRANGERS

The Church has a dedicated Team of Flower Arrangers who work hard to make the Church look beautiful throughout the year. The Altar, Font and Lady Chapel flowers are arranged each week throughout the year by our local volunteer flower arranging team who work on a rota. Many use seasonal flowers and foliage from their own gardens wherever possible.

Would you like to join the Flower Arranging Team?
Experience or no experience, we would love to hear from you.  Don’t worry if you haven’t arranged church flowers before, we will be there to help you.
We try to have enough people on the team so that no-one feels overworked, we always need extra pairs of hands!
