Music and Worship

There is an active Ringing group with practice on Tuesday nights.
There are also six bells, struck by Taylor's of Loughborough and range from D at 7.5cwt to F at 18.5cwt. They are rung each Sunday, for weddings and funerals, and by visiting bands of ringers. .

We have had the Rolls Royce Band, The Burton concert Band, The Friday Singer and Force 10 Band give concert in St Marks. Keep an eye out for the next concert.

St Mark’s houses the earliest 3 manual organ still surviving in the Diocese of Derby. It was one of the last instruments whose design and construction (in 1870) was personally supervised by Joseph W Walker, founder of the organ-building firm in London. The instrument is described as ‘state of the art’ in the book ‘Historic Organs in Derbyshire’ by Rodney Tomkins, formerly organ adviser to the Derby Diocese, and survives without radical alteration. It is used at regular, weekly services and on other occasions.

Evensong on the 1st Sunday Evening at 18.00. This is normally Sung, with a small choir in attendance.

The Choir is an enthusiastic group of all ages.
They sing at our main Sunday Service at 10.45 each Sunday, and a few come to Evensong on the 1st Sunday.
There is a Choir Practice every Friday night starting at 19.30.
The Choir is robed except for our Family Service where they join the congregation.
