St. Mark’s has a number of children’s programs designed to help children develop their interests and social skills.  We also aim to support not just each individual child but their entire family.

Our programs are run by appropriately checked and trained adults who ensure the programs are not only fun, but safe for all. 

As a Christian community, we affirm our commitment to ensuring the safety of each child who interacts with our community.

The Bible tells us that all people are created equal and every person can be a child of God. We look to the Bible to learn how to love and serve everyone no matter what their age, colour, ethnicity, gender or nationality. We specifically seek to promote the cultural safety of vulnerable people including indigenous children, all those children who come from culturally or linguistically diverse backgrounds and any child with a disability.  You can read our Childsafe policy here.

At St. Mark’s we love having our kids in services with us, and maintain an intergenerational approach to all combined services.  We encourage parents and caregivers to participate in worship, with their children helping their kids understand what is going on and encouraging them to participate equally with the adults. Services are planned with these inclusive factors in mind, by providing interactive and creative responses in our times of ‘Worship Together’, and roles for our youth and kids to be involved within these services. We also encourage community building with other members of the congregation and wish to foster friendships across the generations.
