Now launched and running!
Having recently celebrated our 1st Birthday, we have now launched our morning gathering!
Our vision for the 10:30 is to be accessible for everyone. Particularly, we want to make it super easy for families, with crèche space for toddlers and full kids groups for school-age children.
The gathering will last around 90 minutes with vibrant worship, a bible-based talk, and an opportunity to be prayed for.
Doors open 30 minutes before - for tea & coffee.
Our evening gathering is vibrant and full of energy with an emphasis on youth & students.
St. Mark’s Youth runs each week at the 4. They usually stay in the gathering for worship before heading out to the hub for youth group.
Come and join us as we celebrate God together.
Doors open 30 minutes before - come and grab a coffee!
If you're visiting for the first time - you are especially welcome! You might find the information below helpful..
What should I wear? Most people choose to dress casually, but please wear whatever you feel comfortable in!
Who should I find if I have any questions? When you arrive at St. Marks you will be greeted by our welcome team who will be dotted about the church wearing “host team” lanyards. They’ll be able to help you any time during your visit.
What about my kids? On Sundays we run a full kids program for 11 years and under at the 10.30. In the afternoon we run groups for those aged 5-11 yrs as well as youth. All children and youth can join these groups, and those coming to have a look or visitors are especially welcome! Please go to the "Kids" registration table on arriving, located in the main church, and we can describe whats on offer and how you might join in.
Where are the loos? You will find toilets by the main entrance as you come in. There is a disabled access toilet here, and another one in church itself, along with plenty of baby-changing facilities.
What can I expect during the gathering? We tend to start with a few songs and the words will be on the screens. If you don’t know the songs, just relax and listen. Feel free to engage at the level you are comfortable with. Most people will stand during any music, but equally, feel free to sit if you wish.
Following the first few songs, there will be announcements and this is followed by the day’s talk after which there will be an opportunity to respond to what have you have heard.
Gatherings last 1hr 30mins with the café open half an hour before and plenty of time afterwards. If you have brought kids, you won’t need to pick them up until midday or 5.30pm should you wish to have some space to yourself at the end.
How do I get more involved? We endeavour to meet everybody who is new, but it would help us a lot if you would make yourself know to us by filling in a “Connect Card" (on your seat) if you plan to keep coming back. The card will ask for your contact details, so that we can send you information about what's going on. But don’t worry, we won’t spam you or pass on your info to anyone else!
Look forward to meeting you!
