We work in partnership with ‘the Bridge’ in the other schools within the parish and beyond
We are very fortunate to have a large team of trained and experienced Lay Pastoral Assistants in our parish. They, along with the clergy, share in the pastoral ministry to our church and beyond. The team is co-ordinated by Mary Fisher (St Mark’s) and Rev Diane Roberts (residential care homes and St Andrew’s). All enquiries should be brought to them initially and they will then deploy the team in accordance with their gifts, skills and training. We are privileged to have a wide range of skills in this team that incorporates counselling, bereavement support, home communion, baptism preparation and visiting at home or elsewhere (residential care homes and hospital).
Mini-Marks This is a group that seeks to serve the parents and guardians of our parish through the provision of a welcoming, fun and supportive parent and toddler group. It is currently run by Mags Findlay and a very capable group of willing volunteers who provide a secure place for these young parents and their children to socialise and enjoy some time together.
