Prayer and worship

Prayer and worship are essential to us as a church community. The current pandemic has led us to explore new ways of meeting as a congregation, and of nurturing a spiritual life.

Join us in worship

Morning Worship – Sundays now at 11.00am via Zoom

Private Prayer at St Mark’s

St Mark’s church building is open for private, individual prayer during November on Tuesday afternoons between 1-5pm.

We have also installed seven prayer stations around the church grounds for people to use when the building is closed.

Morning Prayer

Rachel Rosborough invites us to join together in saying Morning Prayer each day at 9am, from our own homes. You can find the service, along with set readings for the day, on the Church of England website.

Night Prayer

An order for Night Prayer (Compline) designed to be said at the end of each day is also available.
