St Mark’s follows the biblical practice of tithing: for every £100 given to the Church, we give away £10 to a variety of charities. These are nominated by members of the congregation, and elected by our Church Committee. They are a mixture of local, national and international charities.
In 2015 the charities we supported were:
- Knights Youth Centre, London ( http://www.knightsyouthcentre.org.uk/)
- The Wimbledon Guild ( http://www.wimbledonguild.co.uk/)
- The Children’s Society ( http://www.childrenssociety.org.uk/)
- Christian Aid (http://www.christianaid.org.uk/)
- Toynbee Hall, London ( http://www.toynbeehall.org.uk/)
- Faith in Action (http://www.mertonfaithinaction.org/)
- Ruach Trust (http://theruachtrust.co.uk/)
As well as financial giving, we also pray for these charities within our services and members of our congregation act as volunteers.
