The Most Reverend Stephen Cottrell was enthroned as the 98th Archbishop of York. Archbishop Stephen said: “I am delighted and humbled to be the 98th Archbishop of York. I have begun my ministry at a time of huge hardship and challenge and at the moment Covid19 is having a particularly devastating impact in the north.

New Meeting Room

New Toilets

The White House

Major building improvements

 

We have raised and spent over £54,000 during the lock-down period. While the building has been standing unused we have siezed the opportunity to complete a wide range of improvements.

  • New heating system

  • A new small meeting room

  • New windows and toilets

  • Flat roof replaced over new meeting room

  • New floor covering in the Main Hall, Small Hall (Coffee Bar) and entrance

  • New fitted kitchen supplied by Welham of Marske - £3500 still needed!

The work continues:

As funds become available we plan to:

  • Decorate the two main halls & new light fittings (£13,000)

  • Improve wheelchair access and resurface the drive/parking area
  • Paint the outside

We already have over £6,500 in the 'kitty' towards the £10,000 for a new kitchen. Please help if you can. There is still a long way to go and we need all the help we can get in order to create a building we can all be proud of.

The church has a Just Giving page. Please  support this essential work which benefits so many of Marske's community groups.

Sign up to our Easy Fund Raising scheme. When you purchase from any of 5200 online retailers and services, they will donate a small percentage of the value of your 'basket' to St. Mark's PCC.
