Hey Good Looking!

click & scroll around till your heart's content.

A building is made of bricks and bolts, a cake is made of eggs and flour, fish and chips is made of, well. Fish. And chips. And a church is made of people! St Mark’s is a group of people having fun while travelling through life and exploring faith. Some of us would call ourselves Christians, some of us would call ourselves interested onlookers, and one guy even calls himself the Vicar.

We meet in a bunch of places throughout the week, sometimes for ‘church’, sometimes for prayer, sometimes for a drink and other times just for the heck of it. You should totally come too. It’s for people who are wondering or worshipping, full of faith or full of doubt, introverts and extroverts…you should totally come along. 

Check out the diary for all that’s coming up soon or just pitch up to one of the weekly gatherings. See you soon.

SUNDAY


It’s all church baby, but our central weekly gatherings are a bit special. They’re pretty easy going and we’re fairly sure you won’t feel as though you stand-out if you come along (unless you come dressed as a large chicken).
Although we might move around venue and time-slot from week to week, there is always hot coffee and food of one sort or another.  Whether you count yourself as a Jesus person, you have some issues with God, or if you want to know what it is that affects your soul so deeply at profound life moments, come along. Just don’t wear your chicken costume.

 

COMING UP…

This Sunday we are gathering at Dobbies for breakfast, and also at Cornerstone for The Call in the evening. Pitch up for either or both, will be great to see you! Dobbies is at 10am, The Call is at 7pm.

This coming Sunday (25th Feb) we are gathering again with other Jesus followers from across the city to worship and to pray for the city. Join us, and, for extra bonus points, pitch up early to help out with welcoming people pouring through the door. Cornerstone Church Doors at 6:30 for a 7pm start

This week as we continue to read the Bible together we are camping out in John. Written by a guy called…er…John, this account of the life, adventures and teachings of Jesus is fascinating. Watch this clip to get some background and an overview of what’s going on as you read…    

This month we were blown away by Open Doors who came to visit us at The Call. Each month we gather with Christians from across MK to worship Jesus and pray for the church in our city. This month we were joined by Bishop Steven from Oxford and by Open Doors, who helped us to […]

At the start of Feb we will be reading through a letter in the Bible sent originally to the Colossian church. There is loads of interesting stuff for us to dig into with this one. Watch this clip to get a handle on what’s going on in the letter and what it all means.  

This week we are reading through the book of ‘Ecclesiastes’ This is part of the Wisdom Literature in the middle of the Bible. This clip is really helpful in understanding what the dickens is going on!…

At our carols this Christmas, instead of taking a collection for ourselves, we decided a much more Christmassy thing to do was to buy a sheep for a family who need one! “Who needs a sheep?” we hear you ask? Well…the beautiful people at Pre-Emptive Love provide sheep for displaced families across the middle east. […]

We are kicking off the new year with by reading through the book of James in the New Testament. Watch this short video below to give you an overview of this little book of dynamite – it will also help you sound as though you have read it and understood it, even if you haven’t!

This Sunday we are back together again for our first gathering of 2018. Doors open at 10am with coffee and diet-friendly pastries served till 10:30 when we kick off. Hope to see you there – ware something you got for Christmas!  

One of our Junior St Marks gang was messing around with lego recently and accidentally created this little master-piece! He is so talented it makes us sick!  

At our Carols last night we unleashed the Christmas Sheep! Instead of a collection, we decided to try and buy a sheep for a displaced family in the middle east. It is a source of warmth, clothing, food and money to the family who has lost everything, so please give if you are able. Click […]

Pray

Prayer Header
Prayer is the source of all good things. It is escaping the race while running another one faster. It is to breathe pure air rather than the toxic fumes. It is food for the soul, nourishment for the spirit. It appeals to Jesus, whose power is greater than ours, love is strong than ours and wisdom is higher than ours. It turns the impossible into reality.
This month we are praying specifically about a ‘Home’ for St Marks…should we seek one, does God have one stashed up His sleeve for us?!
Below Paul outlines what is important about this – and what isn’t.
You can also use the prayer meditation and the prayer cards (either grab one at a gathering or download one here) to help you pray with the rest of the gang.
If you sense Jesus whisper anything to you as you pray, make a note and feed it back…let’s see what happens next!

RoadTrip

WE’RE GOING ON A ROADTRIP!

Pack your bags, get a neighbour to water your plants and feed your cats…cos we’re outta here!
Here are all the details that you need, and some that you might not.

WHEN

Fri 1st June – Sun 3rd June
Friday will be a relaxed arrival. The doors will open at 4pm, with plenty of time to pitch your tent / find your room / explore the site before enjoying a rolling buffet for dinner (so if you need to arrive later after work, then there will still be food available)
Saturday will be a day of fun, food, relaxing and some activities to do together. And Repeat.
Sunday we will spend the morning together before enjoying a top notch lunch. After that it’s time to de-camp and head on home for school!

WHERE

Centre Pics
Windmill Farm Conference Centre
Set in beautiful cotswold surroundings (near Clanfield), the centre has en-suite rooms, a camp site, a farm house, eating areas and activity areas. It is about 53 miles from your house, so should not take too long to get to.

FOOD

We will provide food for the whole weekend (Friday dinner, 3 meals on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday) and drinks will be on tap throughout.

WHAT WILL BE HAPPENING?

Final details are still receiving final clearance from the ministry of defence, but if the last few years have been anything to go by – you’re in for a treat! There will be cake, games, toasted marsh-mallows, possibly a silent disco, cards, more cake, family movies, laughs and gallons of tea.

LETTERS TO THE CHURCH

On the Sunday morning we will gather as church. As part of this, a few / some / all of us will read out letters to the church – to encourage each other and build one another up. This is a roll-over from Christmas when we were snow-closed…so hopefully the weather will be more compliant this time! If you have been a part of the gang for more than 2 weeks and would like to write a letter, please do! Aim for one side of A4…extra points awarded for honesty, tear-jerking stories and side-splitting funnies!

THE WONGA

Let’s get down to brass tax. How much does it cost?
Well. If money is the only thing stopping you coming, just skip the next bit, book your place and come anyway…we want you to be there way more than we want your money in the bank.
If you are able to pay then there is a guide price on the booking form of £75 for adults and £10 for kids. We have tried to keep this as cheap as possible and the church is subsiding the whole weekend as it is such fun to hangout! If you are able to pay, thank you very much. If you feel like paying a bit extra so that others can come…thank you very very much!
You can bring cash to the weekend if needed, or preferably, transfer money into the St Marks Account, details below, with ROADTRIP as the reference:
