Our vision at St Mark's is to see children and families connected with Jesus and be equipped for life.
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.

FRIDAYS 9.30-11.30am (TERM-TIME ONLY) CHURCH HALL
Incredibles is a playgroup for babies and toddlers with special needs and their parents or carers.
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!
