Prayer Group

Prayer and reflection is an important part of life at St Mark’s not only for the Children but for all members of the community.

A group of parents meet either in school or at a member’s home close to the school on a monthly basis to offer prayers.

They pray:

  • for the needs of the school that are known to them

  • in response to an increasing flow of prayer requests coming from members of the school community and also

  • in response to prayers and requests that the children have placed on the prayer tree in the foyer.

Whilst prayer is the focus of this group also allows space for a hot drink and an opportunity to develop supportive and friendly relationships across the school community. The prayer group welcomes all members of the school community and is open to anyone at any time.
