About Us

The Present

St Mark’s Parish has a clear Anglican identity and aims to be the spiritual home for all our parishioners regardless of age. Hence, we try to offer a wide variety of services and activities. Our vision is expressed in the following three points:

 ·        St Mark’s – A warm and welcoming Church, where the preaching, teaching and pastoral care are the fruits of Christ–centred worship, and where the nearness of God is experienced in the spirituality of the rich liturgical and choral traditions of the Anglican Communion.

 ·        St Mark’s – A Church, where our witness is demonstrated through our actions, and where the Christian faith is living, real and relevant to a modern world.

 ·        St Mark’s – An outward looking congregation seeking to increase Christ’s Kingdom through the teachings of Holy Scriptures; and a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can feel at home as they seek to grow in faith. 


The Future

Our vision is based around encouragement. We are encouraged to grow in faith, in fellowship and also in numbers. So far, the response has been heartening and it has brought together parishioners of all ages and interests and we feel both blessed and inspired.

St Paul said:

Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, as indeed you are doing.(1 Thessalonians 5:11)
