Lake & River Cells & Clusters

As St Mark’s develops as a Lake and River church two different sorts of cell groups are emerging: Core Cells and River Cells

Different but the same

Although core cells and river cells may be different, in different places they still share the same DNA, expressed through the core values of St Mark’s church. For more information visit our vision page.

Core Cells

The starting point for core cells is regular attendance at the Sunday services held at St Mark’s. Core cells meet midweek to apply the Sunday morning teaching into their lives. Starting from the core they then move out in mission and evangelism to those who do not regularly attend church.

River Cells (cluster cells)

The starting point for a river cell is it’s missional focus. Here we aim to cluster people around a shared interest, passion or place such as a school or in the work place to ask ourselves what church might look like in that particular setting. We currently have river cells linked to craft groups, in a local primary school, in the work place and linked to “alternative worship” services such as Café Church and Dream.

When do they meet?
