The Other Events Page
Not everything that happens with St Mark’s takes place in our own church and sometimes only one or two people may be involved. If you have any news, or stories to record that you would like to share drop me an e-mail , include photos etc and I will broadcast your news to the World Wide Web (or your Auntie Bunty in Huntly).
Each year there is a celebration to honour William Wallace, whose statue is across the street from the church. This year (2012) Ian Lord took some photographs of the event and here they are.
In early February 2011 two friends from our City Centre Grouping went on a two week trip to Kenya to give support to Abigail Ministries and Rev Daniel Rugut. Daniel attended Queen Street Church when he was studying Divinity at Aberdeen University and Kathleen Innes from Queen Street has been a tireless fund-raiser for Daniel and his supporters in Abigail Ministries. Our last Grouping Social, “A Kenyan Jambo” was dedicated to them.
You can now offer further help by sponsoring either Kathleen or Ian McIver , our Grouping Outreach and Development Worker, who visited Nairobi, New Hope and Eldoret before returning to Aberdeen on 20 February. You can read more about Abigail, Kathleen and Ian here . Sponsorship is still welcome.
Now that Ian and Kathleen are back you can see the story of their trip here.
