"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
At St Mark’s, we want to equip Christians to be effective witnesses wherever they find themselves, understanding the deep relevance of the Gospel to every aspect of life. This obviously includes our places of work! See below for in-house resources and partner ministries that can help you follow Christ's call in this area of life.
Sermons and Podcasts
Our sermons often include applications to the workplace. Just search for 'work' or other relevant themes in our online sermon library
. Do also check out the Faith in Action
podcast (on iTunes
) by our very own Richard Sargeant, interviewing Christians about how faith affects the way they live and work today.
Global Leadership Summit
If you are wanting to grow in your understanding of what wisdom Christianity has to offer on the subjects of work and leadership, a great annual opportunity is the GLS
. Every October, we host a campus of this excellent conference produced by Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago. It is guaranteed to inspire and equip you for greater kingdom impact in your workplace. Many of our members have found it so useful and accessible that they regularly bring their whole team with them!
