Children are important members of our church family and are very welcome at Mark St Church. Children and youth of all ages spend the first part of the worship service together with the entire congregation, and participate in a “children’s time” with our minister or a lay leader. Older children also take active roles leading other parts of the worship service.
Children under 5 years of age then leave for age-appropriate programs, and nursery care is also available.
We believe our faith is formed not only through instruction, but through our experiences; a sense of belonging, ritual, songs and traditions all mould our identity. Accordingly, we also have a wide variety of other activities for children and youth throughout the year, from hay-rides and visits to pumpkin patches at Halloween, from Christmas and Easter plays to summer picnics and Vacation Bible School.
