At St Marks we understand the social, emotional, physical and spiritual pressures teenagers face. We want to walk with them on their journey to young adulthood. Teen Church is a place where God’s Word is applied to teenage life. The pressures teenagers face are real, we want to make sure they are equipped to handle those pressures from God’s perspective.
As a parent, we want you to trust that we have your teen's best interest at heart. Our aim is to provide a solid spiritual foundation that will equip them to face the challenges of life. Teenagers need an environment to express their social, emotional and faith struggles with other like-minded teenagers.
The journey to adulthood has many highlights and lowlights. At teen church we want to celebrate the good times and be there for your teenager during the difficult times. Our model is based on 2 Timothy 3:16-17 – where each individual is mentored, instructed in doctrine and equipped for every good work.
Every Sunday of the school term, during the 09:30 Family Service, we meet in the school conference centre, where we have open discussions on current topics and are presented a lesson dealing with pertinent biblical principles or participate in a small group facilitated by youth leaders.
“Teen Church gave me the tools to develop my relationship with the Lord. More importantly it helped me to establish my Christian identity”. – Darren Benecke (Youth Pastor, attended St Marks since age 6)
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
