Welcome to St Marks CRC
Here you will find an approach to Christianity that seeks to be inclusive, inquiring and intellectually robust. One rooted in Jesus of Nazareth and the momentum of faith-filled human being he embodied personally and engenders in others.
Please take time to look around and discover a little more about our approach and what we are able to offer. Above all, we hope you will accept our invitation to participate in a community of persons drawing inspiration from Jesus as we try to live authentically and with integrity in the 21st century.
Saturday 24th September
With Canon Professor Richard Burridge
Richard Burridge will lead a day on how we need to pay attention not only to the demanding ethical teaching of Jesus, but also – and critically – to the model of inclusivity and acceptance found in his deeds and example, and in the early Christian communities. The morning will concentrate on the biblical material and method; the afternoon, in an ethical and generic challenge to reading the New Testament, on application to contemporary situations. Richard’s is a radical and challenging interpretation.
