St Mark’s is alive, full of genuine love! It is a welcoming and growing church family, spanning the generations. Our worship style is relaxed - our clergy wear robes and we use Common Worship liturgy, but our emphasis is on gathering and worshipping together, rather than getting things right all the time. Our hymns are a mix of traditional and more modern worship music. We are disability- and dementia-friendly, and we make a lot of effort to provide practical support – such as all-in-one, large-print bespoke documents for our main services – to ensure genuine inclusivity.
We don’t just worship together: we have a true sense of family. We are immensely supportive of each other, offering prayers and hands-on help when people go through tough times. When the lockdown started, we formed ourselves into fellowship groups of about 6-8 households each, to make sure that everyone has emotional and practical support. We are still worshipping together, with some services provided online by St Mark's through Zoom, and we are also joining in with other services provided by nearby churches.
