Mariakani & Kilimanjaro Trek

In May 2017, we will be returning to Mariakani to visit our church link, to serve alongside the church in the community and to undertake another gruelling but exciting sponsored climb up Kilimanjaro!


The Kilimanjaro team will be raising money for Compassion's RESPOND initiative, which provides HIV testing and prevention schemes in Tanzania. More information on the scheme can be found here:

Compassion HIV Education and Testing Campaign (483.0KB)

To see who is on the team, and to help them reach their sponsorship goal, click here!

Whilst the Kili team head up the mountain, another group will be staying back and working with Mariakani Baptist Church to run a series of activities and events in the local community. 

Due to luggage restrictions, we are unable to take individual gifts from sponsors not on the trip, however we will be taking a central collection of gifts on behalf of the 175 St Mark's sponsors! If you would like to contribute financially to this, please pay your gift into the following account ASAP:

St Mark’s Church

We would welcome cards from you to deliver to your sponsored child. Please make sure the card is no larger than A6, lays flat, and has your sponsored child's name and number on the front. Please do NOT include any personal contact information e.g. address stickers. These cards can be left at Reception, or passed to Lauren Sheath.

Please do be praying for both teams as they prepare for the trip!
