St Mark's is a place where we hope that your child will have fun, make friends and experience God at church!
We love all the children and young people that God brings our way, whether on Sundays or during the week. In partnership with families we want to model Gods love for them and, encourage and provide opportunities to grow in their faith, share Jesus' love with others and grow in their gifts God has given them.
On Sunday mornings we all join together for family worship before the children & younger youth head to their groups. We have different rooms for our different age groups with each group having team leaders. Look out for them in bright blue t-shirts!
On the first Sunday of every month we have an All-Age service and during Summer holidays there are no kids groups- this is a time for all of our wonderful volunteers to have a break!
Creche 0-2 yrs
Babies and toddlers have a space to play and be cared for by our dedicated leaders. Parents are welcome to leave their little ones with our leaders or stay with them!
Our preschool room is so much fun! On arrival our kids have creative free-play to help them settle in and fun-termly themes to engage them in the bible, followed by an encounter time with God, crafts and snacks
Our school aged children meet in the hall for games, snacks, worship and then split into small groups as they go deeper into the bible and respond by doing a creative activity.Then we leave some quiet time to chat & catch from God & using their prayer journals.
We would love everyone to feel welcome here at St Marks! If your family have any additional needs we would love to chat with you so we can find the best way to support you all. We understand that your first visit can be difficult, so please contact us before your visit!
Parents & Toddlers
Our Parent & Toddler sessions offer a fun, friendly and safe environment for children (from birth to 3 years) and their carers. Sessions run on Tuesdays 2-4pm and Wednesdays 9.15-10.45 and 11.00-12.15, except during school holidays. Each session involves play with age-appropriate toys, stories and action songs. Refreshments are always available!
Incredibles is a playgroup for babies and toddlers with special needs and their parents or carers.
It takes place every Friday morning during term time in the Church Hall, between 9.15 - 11.15am.
Each session we hope to create an environment where parents and children feel loved, valued and safe for play and relaxation.
It’s an opportunity to talk to other parents who may be bringing up a child/ren with special needs, while enjoying coffee and cake. The toys are all imaginatively chosen to the needs of the children and our friendly, dedicated team (who are all DBS checked) look forward to welcoming you and your child!
Our mission partners YWAM London run Wildfire once a month on Thursday, 4:00-5:30pm for children 5-10yrs. Kids have so much fun as the play games, enjoy sweet snacks, worship, connect with God and build friendships. All kids are welcome, so please invite their friends! Please check the calendar for the next session. If you would like more info, please email Yoli (Widlfre leader).
There will be a number of special events and parties throughout the year especially dedicated for children - take a look at our What's On page for all events that are coming up.
Contact our Children's Pastor Jenny if you have any questions or for more information.
We cant wait to see you!
