St Mark's, Watford
Welcome to St Mark's!
Covid-19: We are back and holding services in our churches again with Communion services at 9.30 am at St Mark's on Sundays and on Wednesdays at Christ Church at 10.00 am
**AGM Sun 25th Oct 11.30 Zoom. See "One off events" for more info **
We are looking forward to welcoming you to worship in the church buildings but due to Covid-19 restrictions we've had to reduce seating so it's "first come, first served". Similarly some changes will show up in the service content. Anyone attending a service in church should wear a face covering unless exempt on medical or other grounds. This is following government and C of E guidance.
We will continue livestreaming worship every Sunday at 11.00 from Sunday 9th August onwards (note time change)
The livestream Bible study continues on Wednesdays at 1pm
Livestream Compline (late evening prayer) with space for free prayer Thursdays at 8 pm for about 20 mins.

There will be no Sunday services at Christ Church for the present.
The Food Bank is open on Thursday mornings at Christ Church as usual

St Mark's is a small, friendly and enthusiastic church. Sunday services start at 9.30 am, finishing by 10.30 and everyone is welcome to join in. Everyone is welcome at all of our services and we have people from many different cultures in our congregations. Children (especially lively ones) are very welcome and there's plenty of space for small, active, people to move around during the services.
We meet in a flexible church building which is also the centre for many of our children and family activities. It's also widely used by different groups from our local community. St Mark's is one of two Church of England buildings in the parish (the other being Christ Church)
