Children & Young People

Our regularly occurring provision for Children & Young People on Sundays and throughout the week. In general our midweek groups run during term time and break for school holidays.

For more information about children and families or to book please contact Claire on:

Sparks (4-11's)

 Sunday's during St Mark's Community Church: 4pm - 5:15pm

imageActivities, games and bible teaching alongside the 4[m church service for children to have a safe space to learn at their own pace about the Christian faith.

We believe it is never too soon to start learning about Jesus; so after starting the afternoon together with the whole church family, children of preschool and primary school ages 4 to 11 are invited to join us for Sparks. The group begins each of it's sessions together in St Mark's hall with a time of worship and storytelling to explore the theme in age appropriate activities. 

Please accompany your child to the hall and sign them into their session each week when directed to in the service. Younger children will be given additional support to access the activities. Your children will be brought back to you in the main building at the end of the service.

Mondays 1:15pm to 2:45pm

A stay and play group with activities, crafts, messy activities and a story time with singing themed around bible stories for 0-5's and their parents/carers. £1 per child.

Ablaze (11-15's)

imageFriday evenings7:30pm-9:00pm

ABLAZE is our Friday evening youth group based in St Mark's! It's a great place to meet new people, have fun and find out about God. We are passionate to see our young people in fire for Jesus,  ABLAZE is somewhere our youth can meet together to learn more about Jesus and worship him! All while having loads of fun and making new friends/catching up with old ones! 

We usually begin the night at 7.30pm with an activity,  usually sport or games. After that we will explore the bible together in a fun and engaging way, carrying on with games and challenges,  a chance to chat, ask questions, hear a talk, worship/pray and more! 

We meet in the St Mark's church building, every Friday during term time, as we look to grow as young people who follow Jesus. 
There's something for everyone. Why not come along - and invite a friend!'

Special Educational Needs

All children are special but we know that some children’s needs require a little more prior knowledge and attention so please speak to a leader if you are concerned about your child being able to access the activities / groups.

All of our volunteers hold current DBS clearance and receive training in line with section 20 of our safeguarding policy, which can be found here.
