“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.

elevate_St Mark's Church Youth group


Elevate happens at the 10.30am service. We talk about lots of important issues, such as bullying and why God loves us. We study Bible passages and talk about them. My favourite part is the hot chocolate, and the sweets we get when we remember to bring our Bibles!

ReGenen Youth group St Mark's ChurchReGenen Youth group St Mark's Church


ReGen is a group that meets on Sunday Evenings during the 6:30pm service. We play games, eat snacks, look at a part of the Bible and think about how to apply it to real life. We also pray for each other for the week ahead. I really enjoy this group, it is a great way to de-stress before a week of school, see your friends and become closer to God.

Youth Worship

Worship Night

The Youth Worship Night is on the first Sunday of the month at Artizan. It starts at 6pm and finishes at 7:30pm. At the group we have a short talk by a young person or adult then we come together in worship with our worship band. Then we have chips and talk to each other. This is a great night to attend. Something I really enjoy is singing in in the worship band, the end goal is to get us to lead the worship night and the adults to just supervise.

Young Leaders

We are a group of young people who are between the ages of 13-18 who meet once a month on a Wednesday to plan games and quizzes for Ignite, the children’s group that happens once a month on a Sunday. We encourage the children to get involved and interact more with the activities. We are always looking for more young leaders so if you are in Year 8 or above we would love if you would like to join us.

Youth Impact


Impact is an opportunity to talk about Jesus and not have someone sigh or switch off as soon as you mention God, but rather to have in-depth discussions about the Bible and how we can apply this to our lives. If you’re in School Years 10-13, whether you’ve been at St Mark’s your whole life, from another church or just want to find out more about God, the Impact group is an excellent place to turn down the noise of the world and turn up the voice of God and connect with Him. And if that hasn’t convinced you to come, then the homemade cakes are great too.
