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.
