- we arange a range of social events, trips and concerts
- We have Sunday School during Sunday morning worship
- we run a weekly Community Lunch Club on Tuesdays at 12.30 pm
- we run bible study groups and the Alpha Course
- Messy Church, a monthly craft-based family church aimed particularly at KS1 and KS2 children
- we have a Mothers' Union
- we host an annual Christmas Tree Festival (see separate page)
St Mark's was completed and consecrated in 1847. The church is dedicated to St Mark, one of the four gospel writers and one of Jesus' disciples. The symbol for St Mark is a winged lion representing the kingship of Jesus. Come and join us and together we make sense of following Jesus today in daily life.
