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 at 10:30am via Zoom

Our service of Morning Worship via Zoom each Sunday remains our main service of the week. You can dial up on a computer, tablet or mobile, or dial in via your landline. Details of how to sign in are available in our weekly email bulletin.

An order of service, along with a transcript of the sermon, may be found here each week:

Communion (spoken service) – alternate Sundays at 9am

From Sunday, 26th July, a short service of spoken communion will take place on alternate Sundays at St Mark’s at 9am.

Due to social distancing measures, space at this service will be limited. Please email our vicar, Rachel, if you wish to attend. Further details may be found on our Services page.

Please note that from 8th August the wearing of face masks will be mandatory in churches and other places of worship.

Private Prayer at St Mark’s

Throughout July and August, St Mark’s will be open for private, individual prayer on Wednesday afternoons between 2-5pm.

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.
