There is plenty for children and teenagers to get involved in at St Mark’s. As well as the groups (Lions or the Broomhall girls group), teenagers often act (at, say, the Christmas Eve play or the pancake party on Shrove Tuesday), play an instrument for the morning service, serve or read at services, or help with the crèche. Some people do lots, some do less; we welcome all.
The St Mark’s Lions meet twice a month at 6pm for food and conversation in the church lounge. Regular socials are also organised on Sunday afternoons eg, trips to the panto, climbing or pizza hut. We get involved in fundraising for specific causes, or particular events such as the Broomhill Festival (held in June each year). We sometimes go away for a weekend, getting to know each other better and exploring a city, or perhaps spending time somewhere a bit more rural! New members are always very welcome.
Broomhall Girls Youth Club
On Thursdays during term time between 7.00 and 9.00pm we run a youth club for girls at the Broomhall Centre on Broomspring Lane. This is a joint project with other churches in the area but is an open youth club with no religious content. We employ a youth worker to run the sessions which include cooking, indoor and outdoor games and craft activities. At the moment this group is attracting the 11-14 age group but we hope to be able to run a group for over 14’s too.
