Hi Everyone

For the past number of years the Churches of Navan, Vars and Bearbrook have got together for a welcome BBQ at St Mary’s Navan on the first Sunday of Sept. This year with the amalgamation St Mary the Virgin and St Mark’s have been added to the mix. The BBQ begins around noon at St Mary’s and all are welcome to attend. If you would like to bring along a salad or desert it would be greatly received. Everything else will be provided. I recognize the short notice I have given you but hopefully we can get the word out so that those who wish to attend will be welcomed to do so. 



The parish plans to expand our
current church facilities to achieve
the following goals:

meet the needs
of the Anglican community in our
area; and provide additional space
for parish activities.
The Diocesan wide stewardship
initiative, Growing in Faith Together
(GIFT), will help us to achieve our
goals. This fundraising program
invites each of us to make a pledge
to our Diocese and our parish. The
money our parish raises will
support out expansion plan.


What is Messy Church?

Messy Church is one church's attempt to be church for families who might want to belong to their local church and bring up their children as Christians but can't cope with the traditional Sunday morning church services.

It's a once-a-month time of creativity, worship and eating together.
