What We Do

What We Do

     Some of What We Do at St. Mark's. This page is dedicated to many activities we do here at St. Mark's. Come back often for updates.




Sunday Mornings 

We worship every Sunday at St. Mark’s at 10:30am.  Our worship environment is casual, intimate, and friendly - all ages and dress codes are welcome!  Most Sundays, there is a mixed-age Sunday School program for kids age 4-12, and sometimes we worship all together.  Our ministers work hard to create meaningful connections between faith and everyday life, and our preaching often speaks to contemporary culture and current events.  Past sermons can be found on our “Online Sermons” page. For more information, please contact Rev. Alison Mock or Rev. Christina Paradela


Music

Our Music program is growing!  We have three opportunities to participate in the musical life of St. Mark’s, and new members are welcome in all programs.
  • The Resounding Joy Handbell Choir rehearses on Tuesdays at 7:00pm, and plays in worship about once a month.  For more information, contact Diane Knyf
  • The Adult Choir contributes each week in worship, and rehearses on Thursdays at 7:00pm.  For more information, contact Ann Green or visit their web page.  
  • Children and Youth of all ages are encouraged to participate in the Performing Arts for Youth group!  They meet every Sunday after church from 11:45-12:45, and work on different music and drama projects throughout the year.  Singing, acting, and instruments are all part of the mix.  For more information, contact Ann Green or visit their web page.  

Youth Group

Our Youth Group meets on the 2nd Friday of every month from 6-8pm, and is a shared group with Lynden, Rock Chapel, and St. Paul’s United Churches.  We alternate between St. Mark’s and St. Paul’s for our meeting time.  Our time together usually includes a meal, a few games, and some learning together about our faith, the Bible, social issues, or justice work.  


Community Dinners

On the first Monday of every month, St. Mark's opens its doors to those in the community needing a nutritious meal.  Volunteers help to set up, prepare, serve, and clean up afterwards.  The menus vary with an emphasis on homemade and natural ingredients.  St. Mark's sees this as an important outreach to our local community.  


Community Gardens

St. Mark's provides land, water, and tool storage for our community gardens, which were developed in partnership with the Rotary Club of Dundas Valley Sunrise, and Dundas in Transition.  Each gardener enjoys the harvest from their rented plot, and also cares for one adjacent plot.  Produce from the second plot is our gift to the Dundas Food Bank.
