The Guild meets on the 1st Friday. Its objective is to provide fellowship for the members, to hear speakers and to undertake special projects to assist with fund raising for the Parish and beyond. There is also a Craft Group which meets on Wednesdays over lunch from 12.00 – 3.00. It is a time of fellowship and provides an opportunity to learn new skills. From time to time the Group undertakes special projects, such as the Centenary Quilt (shown in the slide show on the Home page) and making rugs for the Hamlyn Fistula Clinic in Ethiopia. Whilst attendance at both these groups is usually only women, they are also open to men.
The Dromana Women’s Christian Group is an initiative of St Mark’s Women’s Ministry. It main activity is a bi-monthly Morning Tea which is offered free of charge to all women. There is usually a guest speaker, a second speaker representing a fund raising agency and some musical entertainment. They are usually held in the Worship Centre (refer map) Details of the next Morning Tea event may be found here. There is also Young Women’s Life Group which meets on Friday morning.
