Children in church and accessibility
Some fear that bringing a child to church can be difficult, but we welcome people of all ages. We know that children sometimes cry, or shriek with glee, and they can rarely sit still, that’s fine! It’s a joy to see them grow up in church and learn to love and know God.
“Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” Matthew 19.14 NRSV
At the back of church you can find various provisions for a range of ages. We are also on the brink of an exciting time of reordering in church, and once this is complete there will be accessible toilets and changing facilities.
We aim to be make worship at St Mark’s accessible for all, with a loop system and large print service sheets available. If there is anything that would help you in your worship with us, please let us know.
