You are warmly invited to St Mark’s this season.  As unrest, injustice, and suffering seems to rage in the world, how is the Christmas story one of love, joy, hope and peace for all?  

Born into a broken world, in a little a town of Bethlehem, the Prince of Peace came to earth.  We invite you to join us in Advent as we align ourselves with God’s presence and explore why the birth of a baby is relevant for each of us in the world today.

Half of the collection taken during the Christingle Service will go to the work of the Children’s Society and half towards the mission and ministry of St Marks.

As a church we give 10% of our giving to charity. During our Christmas services 10% of all donations will go towards the Archbishops of Jerusalem & Canterbury Emergency Appeal for Diocese of Jerusalem. The international appeal calls for prayers and donations not only for the work of the Anglican-run al-Ahli Arab Hospital’s vital work in Gaza, but also for the Diocese of Jerusalem’s ministries throughout the Holy Land which are also being greatly affected by the Israel-Hamas war.
