See you there!

Our world is in crisis, as millions of people move from one place to another in search of safety and hope. There are currently an estimated 59.5 million people displaced around the world, and we cannot turn the other way and pretend that we can't see them.

 

It is time for us to open our arms and open our hearts, as we begin to discover that together we can make a difference!

"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me"

Matthew 25:35

words of Jesus

Sanctus St Marks exists to welcome, support and walk alongside people who are isolated, due to leaving behind the country of their birth to seek sanctuary in the UK. Our name comes from the Latin word which means Holy. We believe that there no action more holy than welcoming and loving people.

We know that faith is an important aspect of many peoples lives, and is often the reason why they have fled from the country of their birth. And so we aim for our welcome to reflect and acknowledge that, offering support to people of all faiths and none.

You are Welcome
