Men’s Ministry

Home / Men’s Ministry

Part of our aim as a church is to build community and help men to grow in their faith.

Outreach to men is a key part of our vision. Many men are overstretched by work, and seeking to juggle family, friendships and a host of other priorities.

In recognition of this, men at St Mark’s do life together in various different ways…

Join us on Wednesdays at 8pm (Fortnightly), where the only aim is to get together and enjoy each other’s company. Please email for dates and locations

We have events such as meals, speakers, social action which bind us together with a common purpose.

We have an annual weekend away.

We want to see men being able to grow in community and support – becoming more accountable to each other, seeking God together, having significant friendships.

For more information, please contact the Marksmen



Weekend Retreat for St Mark’s Men

Sat & Sun 18/19 January

The Jonas Centre at Redmire in beautiful Wensleydale

Scandinavian style cabins provide warm, spacious accommodation and have recently been refurbished. We meet and eat in a converted Granary Barn on site and on Saturday evening at the nearby Bolton Arms.

Similar to previous MarksMen Retreats the weekend will be a mixture of learning, discerning, worship and prayer. It’s a great way to start your New Year, and it’s good fun.

Time:  9.00am Saturday to 1.30 Sunday
Cost: £66 sharing a twin room. Single room supplement £35.
(Price excludes Saturday evening pub meal).

Friday night accommodation is available if you wish to avoid an early start on Saturday morning : Price: £35 sharing a twin room or £70 single occupancy.

In previous years Sunday lunch in the pub has been popular with those who don’t have to return home immediately.

If you have any questions please contact Mike Proctor by email:
or you can call the church office: 01423 544528.
