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)

At this service we take time to remember that Jesus has died for us, is risen from the dead and is always with us through the Holy Spirit. The service includes Bible readings, a talk about the readings seeking to apply them to our everyday lives, hymns/worship songs, prayers, and the sharing of bread and wine in communion.
