Get involved

Christians are “Full Time Christian Workers” – not just vicars or missionaries. God cares just as much about what you do from Monday to Saturday, as He does about Sunday.

Your job, or voluntary work, or weekday relationships can all be part of His healing, restoring life on earth (called in the Bible “the Kingdom of God”)

For the Christian who knows this, everything can be sacred. There are no splits in a life where Jesus is Lord. We are trying to equip people at St Mark’s to be full-time in their kingdom work.

You might like to ask, for example:
How does my work glorify God?
How do the ways in which my work operates reflect the values of His life?
How do my relationships reflect God’s love at work?
How would Jesus do my job?

But, in addition, there are ways in which we live out our calling together as a church community. It is good for every member of the body of Christ to be serving in some way.

You may like to get involved with:

Lighthouse – to support the participants or serve refreshments

Open Church – our daily drop in offering friendship and a listening ear

Over 60s lunches – a monthly event for mature people, served by volunteers

Environmental group – seeking to look after the earth in practical ways

Traidcraft – fairly traded goods creating just livelihoods in the developing world.

Mother’s Union – committed to supporting family life

Compassion – sponsoring children in Ghana (up to 80 at the moment)

Local mission – we have links to lots of Kingdom work in Harrogate

Global mission – and support projects around the world

In addition we are keen to recruit committed people to:

  • Welcome and serve on Sundays
  • Help in worship gatherings – music, media, reading, drama, leading prayers
  • Nurture children and young people
  • Practical tasks
  • General catering for those in need
  • Pastoral care
  • Prayer teams
  • Media/graphics

Everyone has gifts to share – we hope you can let God offer yours at St Mark’s.
