There is plenty for children and teenagers to get involved in at St Mark’s. As well as the groups (Lions, M or the Broomhall girls group), teenagers often act (at, say, the Christmas Eve play or the pancake party on Shrove Tuesday), 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 on Sunday mornings for breakfast during the 10.00am service. We’re aged between 11 and 16 (plus leaders!) and as well as eating we tend to play a game and spend some time talking about big issues or maybe thinking about how something in the Bible is relevant to us today. Once a year we go away for a weekend, getting to know each other better and exploring a city, or perhaps spending time somewhere a bit more rural!
M is a group of older teenagers who meet about about once a month on Sunday afternoons (because who wants to meet on a morning!?). Sometimes it’s just snacks and chatting and playing mafia, sometimes it’s rehearsing a pantomime to perform to the younger children, sometimes it’s a trip out to the cinema, there’s no set pattern.
If you’d like to know more, or when M is next happening, then either ring or text Alistair on 07929 200763 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
