For us at St Mark’s, music and drama are wonderful ways of meeting each other, of engaging with the deeper questions, and exploring faith. Our wide ranging events bring people together both within the church and the wider community, Over the years we’ve produced and hosted plays, musicals, revues, film evenings, concerts, choral extravanganzas, organathons and much more besides.

Recent events:

St Mark’s hosted a book launch for Richard Bauckham’s poetry collection, ‘Tumbling into Light’. Pictured is Jeremy Begbie in conversation with Richard Bauckham.

Radius Festival of New Plays

St Mark’s was delighted to host this year’s Radius festival.  The event was open to all who are interested in how drama can present issues of faith and belief and all the mysteries and paradoxes of being human.  There were specially commissioned dramas, panel discussion and shared meals.

Radius is the religious drama society of Great Britain. They are a volunteer-run, ecumenical charity, bringing together people with a shared interest in religious drama – this they define broadly as not only drama about religious stories, but that which “illuminates the human condition”, to quote their second president, E. Martin Browne. They do not mount their own productions but work with local groups who ask for assistance in putting on a performance or festival event. Check out their website for more information:
