St. Marks welcomes students studying at both the Sheffield Universities, and welcomes students from all backgrounds and beliefs, providing fellowship and a number of activities which students can get involved in.

There are normally students at both morning and evening services at St. Marks, but the evening service tends to be more popular with students and normally has a larger student congregation. Occasionally there are shared meals at Church – either after the morning service or before the evening service, which students regularly attend.

Get involved @St Mark’s

Outside of these services, there are a number of activities that students get involved with, from Social Justice Campaigns to groups such as SCM and Gospel Choir and one-off social events such as walks in the peaks and weekends away.

There is a Facebook group for the students and young adults at St. Marks. Group members often post relevant articles and share interesting theological resources, as well as engage in thought-provoking discussion. Occasionally social events are organised on the group too. The group can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/402775483205213/

If you are interested in music you might like to try St. Marks Choir or the Gospel Choir and new musicians are always welcome too, especially at Night Service.

There are a number of social justice campaigns that St. Marks organises and that students get involved with, including the Soup Run and Broomhall Breakfast . There are lots of other volunteering opportunities too, from helping with the children’s and youth work or environmental concerns, to joining other church groups or helping with the Broomhill Festival.

One-off events

St. Marks is planning to organise some one-off events for students over the coming year. We envisage that these events will revolve around a short talk from interesting guest speakers, followed by questions and discussion with the speaker. Other one-off events include weekend walks in the Peak District and social events.
