how you can help us

We depend on regular giving by church members to sustain our day-to-day ministry, our work in the community and our giving to charitable and mission groups.

We give a tithe (around a tenth) of our income to mission organisations and established charities such as Tearfund, Christian Aid and the Barnabas Fund.

We have a Missions Giving Committee that allocates our church giving. If you have a suggestion for a good cause please email the church administrator.

We encourage all church members to to set aside a proportion of their income for giving to St Mark’s, and to give regularly (monthly or weekly).
