“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” 1 Timothy 4:12

We believe in investing in our young people here at St Mark’s to give them space to ask questions, pray together, become a disciple of Jesus, reflect and serve our wider church family with lots of fun and laughter along the way.
