Welcome to St Mark's Dukinfield
St Mark's is an Anglican church. We are a growing, family-friendly group who would love to welcome you. Why not pop in one Sunday morning? Our main Sunday service starts at 10.30 am and afterwards, we gather in the hall for tea and coffee and catch up with one another's news. Here are some of the features of life at St Mark's:
- there's a special children's corner for little ones to play in during the service
- 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.
