Junior Church

St Mark’s offers a range of groups for school age children.

St Mark’s Junior Church is held every Sunday during term time. Story telling, crafts and activities are arranged, mostly based around the lectionary readings, but also incorporating church seasons and social issues (such as Fairtrade). The children are also invited to take part in organising All Age Services where they lead the congregation in worship.

There is a Youth Fellowship for P7s and older on the last Sunday evening of every month and we join with the young people of Portobello Baptist Church and St John’s and St Mary Magdalene’s Roman Catholic Parishes.

The high school children also have the opportunity of going to Glenalmond Youth Camp, run by the Scottish Episcopal Church’s Youth Network.

Once a year, all the churches of Portobello run a Holiday Club for nearly 100 children in the area, with a range of different activities, including art, drama, music, cooking, gardening, games, reflection and Bible Study.

If you would like further information please do contact us. We look forward to welcoming new children to our Junior Church.

All our Junior Church leaders are PVG certified.
