The Anlaby Churches are at the heart of the "Anlaby communities" - Anlaby, Anlaby Common, Anlaby Park and Rokeby Park. The congregations of St. Mark's, Anlaby Common and St. Peter's, Anlaby are united together under one vicar and leadership team, sharing resources and vision. Together: We are a Christ-centred community, existing to spread a passion for Jesus Christ in the Anlaby Communities and beyond.
We love our community in the Anlaby Communities, and the city of Hull; and we long to see them fulfil their God-given potential. Moreover, we love Jesus, and the difference he has made to our lives, and we would love for others to discover that difference for themselves!
We are a Christian Church
We believe in one God who has revealed himself supremely through his Son, the Lord Jesus. To know God the Father as our loving heavenly Father, we must put our trust in his Son and his death for our sins. The chief work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people joyfully to faith in Christ.
We are an Evangelical Church
We believe that the Bible is God’s word and is therefore our authority in all matters of faith and conduct. God speaks to us today by his Spirit through the Bible, and we seek to listen to and obey God’s voice. We also aim to proclaim the wonderful message of salvation through Christ to as many people as possible.
We are an Anglican Church
We stand in the tradition of the Anglican Reformers of the 16th Century, affirming with them the great truths which were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation. These include the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, and salvation in Christ alone. The doctrine of the Church of England is founded on the 39 Articles of the Church of England.
The Church Council has also recently adopted the Jerusalem Declaration, a statement of biblical Anglican belief for the 21st century. The declaration can be found here, as part of the Jerusalem statement.
All people of any denomination and none are warmly welcome at St. Mark's and St. Peter's.
We are a group of ordinary people who have found that Jesus Christ answers many of our questions, and has transformed our lives for the better.
We believe that Jesus is someone who changes the course of history, claimed to be the God who created the universe, rose from the dead, and still changes lives today.
You're very welcome to join us on our journey of discovery.
