Children in Church

Some fear that bringing a child to church can be difficult, but we welcome people of all ages.  We know that children sometimes cry, or shriek with glee, and they can rarely sit still, that’s fine!  It’s a joy to see them grow up in church and learn to love and know God.
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Matthew 19.14 NRSV

At the back of church you can find various provisions for a range of ages, from ‘Bible Bags’ that contain activities based on Bible stories, in addition to our new ‘Lions Den’ family room that has toys and changing facilities.

Accessibility

We aim to be make worship at St Mark’s accessible for all, with a loop system and large print service sheets available. At the back of Church you’ll find an accessible toilet.
If there is anything that would help you in your worship with us, please let us know.

Parking

We have parking next to the Church building.
Limited parking on tarmac is available, as well as an over-flow on grass during service times.
