Worship for Children at St Mark's

Short, fun and usually packed to the rafters, our monthly Family Service offers the chance for adults and children to worship together.

Each service is planned as an individual event, exploring a seasonal, biblical or contemporary theme in a way which connects with people of all ages. The congregation enjoys a range of musical styles, from worship group to organ, with creative prayer, drama and often something to take home, whilst there is usually a special craft activity in the kids’ corner for younger children.

The service is ‘Family’ because everyone is together for the whole service, without separate children’s groups – one huge St Mark’s family! 

Family Services are usually on the second Sunday of the month, at 10am, several of which fall on important dates each year:

• Wakes Parade (May) is an ancient village festival which we celebrate with a parade with the uniformed organisations through the village, accompanied by Bilton Silver Band

• Harvest Festival (September, 3rd Sunday) – our chance to say thank you to God for all he provides for us, with fun activities in the churchyard after the service.

• Remembrance Day (November, 10.50am) – our annual armistice service, complete with parade by the British Legion, uniformed groups and Bilton Silver Band. (an important annual event, but not ideal for very young children)

• Christingle Service (December) – as Christmas approaches we use the symbol of an orange to point us to the birth of Jesus.
