As a Church we are committed to tithing our income to support the work of mission partners in the local area and around the world.

Bible Society

Working in over 200 countries, Bible Society is a charity on a global mission to bring the Bible to life for every man, woman and child. We believe that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change – for good.

Christians Against Poverty 

CAP are passionate about releasing people from a life sentence of poverty, debt, unemployment and addiction. Working with churches they bring good news, hope and freedom to people in the UK.

Ventures and Falcons are holidays for 8-18s packed full of great activities and masses of fun while enjoying the opportunity to explore who Jesus is.

Open Doors

Open Doors supports persecuted Christians around the world with Bibles, Christian materials, training, livelihood skills, advocacy - and in a whole host of other ways - so that they know they are not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities. So that they can give life.

It also seeks to mobilise the church in the UK & Ireland, not only to serve Christians living under religious persecution, but also to learn from them what it means to be a disciple of Jesus.

Street Pastors

Run by volunteers from churches across the town, including St Mark's, Leamington Street Pastors are seeking to create a harmonious and safer environment for those out and about on the town’s streets at night. 

Following the ethos of the national Street Pastor initiative, their prime purpose is to offer non-judgemental care and support through listening and helping, regardless of background. They work very much work in partnership with Warwick District Council who have been very supportive.

Tearfund

A leading relief and development charity, Tearfund is working around the world addressing people's physical and spiritual needs. 

At St Mark's we have committed support to a project in Nepal seeking to promote community development.
