There is no doubt in the minds and hearts of many that over these past years since we’ve been going through the Chance to Thrive process that it is a cause for much Celebration!

Here are just some of the things, we believe, which give us cause for celebration:

  1. When the community has seen the Ministry Team going about their daily routines, people have felt they are hearing the same thing from the team and from the Church.
  1. There is always an open door at St Mark’s – whether it be for people needing our services through funeral care, weddings, school chaplaincy which the team take part in and the service that the Church family offers to the wider community.
  1. The perception of St Mark’s in the community is that we are a Church who want to be involved in the projects and activities in our communities.
  1. We’ve been described by someone who heard of all that we are doing, have done and want to do as people who are “punching above our weight.” What they were saying, was that given how things seem to the human eye in terms of resources and people, we as a Church family are doing what we do with heart and a desire to see our community and Church transformed and full of life.

So please keep your eyes open for more information and if you’d like to know any more about this next stage in St. Mark’s journey, then please contact an Elder.
