Many students come to Wollongong for the purpose of furthering their education. We are also aware that many students away from their home are asking the big questions about life: who am I? What is the purpose of life? What shall I live for?
At St Mark’s, we believe it is a privilege to study and have the opportunity to be able to build and refine gifts and talents that we have been given by God. We also believe that we have the opportunity, resources and ability to encourage students in their investigations, faith and walk with Jesus.
There are several ways that St Mark’s is seeking to do this:
- We have made it a focus of our 5.45 evening congregation to nurture a vibrant, God honouring tertiary community. We organise regular socials and suppers to network the students together as well as with the wider 5.45 family.
- We provide safe, fun, Christian based tertiary accommodation (Unihouse) that enables students to study well, gain independence and learn living skills.
- We run weekly open Bible studies that are designed to help the students grow deeply in their faith, connect and be real with one another in a loving and nurturing environment.
If you are keen to be a part of our tertiary ministry, please contact Craig Langstaff on 4225 8622 or firstname.lastname@example.org
