St. Mark's Episcopal Church

St. Mark's Center for Community Renewal*

St. Mark’s Soup Kitchen has been renamed St. Mark’s Center for Community Renewal. The name of the feeding ministry has changed to reflect the reorganization and rebirth of the outreach efforts at St. Mark’s Church in Keansburg. Here’s what is happening now at St. Mark’s:

  • Continental breakfast is served Monday through Friday from 10:30 to 11:30 AM.
  • Hot meals are served seven days per week from noon to 2 p.m. Guests may stay until 3 p.m. to socialize or meet with counselors.
  • Pantry services are offered two days and one evening per week: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM, and Wednesday evenings from 6PM-7PM.
  • A nurse from VNA is on site weekly to answer health questions and provide screenings.
  • Family Night, 6 - 8 p.m. every other week, for parents and children 2-19 years old - includes dinner, games and crafts as appropriate for the age group. After Easter, Family Night will be held every Friday.
  • Bayshore Wellness Center (formerly Keansburg Resource Network), a free family crisis counseling service, has made its home in the office of St. Mark’s Church.
  • St. Mark’s Church and Center for Community Renewal are located at 247 Carr Avenue in Keansburg. The phone number for both St. Mark’s Church and the Community Center is 732/787-1075. Find out more about St. Mark’s Church and the Center by visiting their website at

    The program is accepting donations of:

  • Non-perishable food, especially canned protein
  • Coffee (regular and instant)
  • Supermarket gift cards
  • Paper products (paper towels, bath/facial tissues)
  • Diapers (particularly large sizes)
  • * Please note, The Kitchen at St. Mark’s, a 501-C3 organization previously housed in the parish hall of St. Mark’s Church, is now located elsewhere. They have retained their previous name, but have no affiliation with St. Mark’s Church.
