About Us

St Mark's is one of the two places of worship serving the little village of Marton (the other being the Congregational chapel nearby). It is one of the six churches in the Chirbury Hills Group, serving rural and agricultural communities straddling the Shropshire / Montgomeryshire border. Thomas Bray, founder of SPCK and (U)SPG, was born in the parish (though before the building of the present church or the establishment of a separate parish of Marton). He is commemorated by a plaque in the church erected in the 300th anniversary year of USPG.
