St. Mark’s has a lively and growing young adult group including students at both Sheffield Universities, young professionals, and anybody else who is looking for a safe inclusive space. We are a self led group that primarily compromise of 18-25 year olds and are committed to LGBTQ+ equality, social justice and exploring our faith journeys together.

Young adults attend both the 10am and Night Service however Night Service tends to have a larger young adult congregation. Occasionally there are shared meals at Church – either after the morning service or before the evening service, which members of this age group regularly attend. There is also a large young adult contingent at the monthly Open Communion service (2nd Sunday of each month at 4pm) for LGBTQ+ Christians and their friends.

Get involved @ St Mark’s

There are a number of socials and activities for young adults at St Mark’s to get involved in. Outside of the scheduled services, the Young Adults group meets on the 4th Saturday of every month from (6.30-8.30pm in the church). Throughout the month there are also formal and informal meet ups ranging from relaxed bible study or trips to the pub. For students there is also the opportunity to become involved with SCM+, through their relevant university chaplaincy or network.

If you are interested in music you might like to try St. Marks Choir or the Gospel Choir and new musicians are always welcome, especially if you’d like to become more involved in Night Service.

There are a number of social justice campaigns that St. Marks organises and that young adults can get involved with. These include the Soup Run and Broomhall Breakfast. The Young Adults group is also active in its commitment for LGBTQ+ and women’s equality within Christian communities.

There are lots of other volunteering opportunities within St Mark’s too, from helping with the children’s and youth work, getting involved in climate change activism or environmental concerns, to joining other church groups or helping with the Christian presence at Pride.
