"We gave 120 local children a Marcus each last May. In November we invited them to a party - and 55 came, together with their Mums." St Columba's, Corby.

The MARCUS Box has been developed as the key to an outreach/mission program to build on the proven success of Storykeepers being attractive to unchurched children. So - Come with Marcus - on an introduction to Jesus.

Over 75,000 children have been introduced to Jesus on receiving a Marcus box since the scheme began.

WHO is it for?

MARCUS is designed to introduce the gospel stories to children aged 7 and upwards, and to form the start point for reaching out to their whole families.

It also makes a great First Communion gift.

Marcus is now available for the smartphone age -
