‘We love because He first loved us’ - 1 John 4:19

Children’s and Youthwork

Tell it to your children, and let your children tell it to their children, and their children to the next generation.’ (Joel 1:3)

Sunday morning groups

The Sunday morning 3-16s groups at St Mark’s are all about letting the children hear about Jesus and get to know him in ways that are appropriate for them as individuals. We use varied and up to date material, to connect with children where they are at. As we welcome God into our games, crafts and conversation, as we try to understand the Bible better and as we worship with shouts, actions and high fives, God is at work in the lives of the children and, through them, our whole church family. It is the prayer of all of the group leaders that these children will not only grow to become disciples of Jesus in the future, but that they can know him at work in their lives now and shout his praises. For more information about 3-11, please speak to Caroline

We have 3 Sunday morning groups:

Bubbles (3-5 years)

Splash (5-8 years)

Xstream (8-11 years)


Ovalteenies

Ovalteenies is a group for Parents and Carers with Babies and Toddlers. We meet at Montgomery Hall on Tuesdays from 9.30am-12.00pm in term-time (Please check ‘events this week’ for exact dates). We have a large hall with a wide range of toys, activities and play areas. There is usually a new craft activity each week. Refreshments are provided. At about 11:00am we get together for some singing and a prayer. We are a friendly group and newcomers are always welcome. For more information, talk to Rebecca.

Events

We recognise that a great deal of spiritual growth takes place at home, in families, and we want to support our church families in bringing God into their daily lives. We regularly organise events outside of Sunday mornings (see events section for forthcoming events) and run a holiday club for 5-11 year olds at the start of the school summer holidays
