A message from Kathy

We welcome you to St Mark’s Church website. We hope you’ll find what you’re looking for here. We’re a friendly bunch of ordinary people, who like to gather to share our life and faith, worship God and learn and grow together.  

We meet every week on a Sunday morning at 10.00am, and anyone and everyone is invited to join us! You’ll receive a friendly welcome, and we’re pretty relaxed, so no need to dress up or worry about knowing what to do. We love it when families join us too - children are very welcome to join in our groups, or be part of the main service. Other things that happen mid-week are our Home Group, our Baby & Toddler Group  and our Haven Lunch Club.
If you’d like to know more, do visit us on a Sunday morning or if you’d like to speak to me, please click here. You might like to have look at our Facebook page too.

May God bless you,
Rev’d Kathy Hicken

Rev Dr Mary Nicholson
Associate Priest

I am very excited about God’s call to work with the people of St Mark’s Church, as we seek under God’s guidance to develop a new ministry to serve people
who are homeless, with addictions and in recovery. I believe that my previous professional experience has formed the foundation of God’s call into this area of ministry and I am looking forward to seeing what God will do.
