Children and Youth

Covid-19 – As of the 2nd May 2021 we are able to start returning to in person activities for our Children’s and Youth groups. These groups will be meeting in the Church Hall abiding by government guidelines and making sure everyone involved is safe and socially distancing. 
We are really looking forward to welcoming back everyone, though we do understand that for some returning to in person activity is not for them right now so we will still be providing some sessions on Zoom.

Sunday 2nd May – Younger Youth in person 10:30am
Sunday 9th May – Kids in person 10:30am
Sunday 16th May – Younger youth in person 10:30am
Sunday 23rd May – Kids in person 10:30am

If you wish for your child aged 12-14 to join us this Sunday (2nd May) then please do fill out this registration form here.

Our older youth group Edge is still meeting on Zoom twice a month on a Sunday evening with the hope to move to in person very soon.

Children’s and Youth Ministry (CYM)

St Mark’s is a family friendly church with over 60 children who enjoy the wide range of activities on offer. During term time, in the 10.30am Sunday service, we have 4 separate age related groups for children from 0-14. During this time, the children enjoy learning about Jesus and growing in their faith through discussion, craft, games and song. During the school holidays we worship all together as church family.

Edge Youth Group (Yr 9-13)

Our group of older youth meet in the church hall lounge on Sunday evenings at 7.15pm – 8.30pm. This is a relaxed group who spend time talking together about their faith and other current issues as well as enjoying games and social activities. Young people do not need to be members of St Mark’s to join this group as all are welcome.
