‘We love because He first loved us’ - 1 John 4:19
A friendly, growing church with an amazing variety of people. St Mark’s is a place where you can find faith, friendship, space to wrestle with life’s big questions, and hope for the future.
We believe we exist as a church to worship God, to love and disciple one another in a diverse family and to demonstrate the love of Jesus through serving our local community. We encourage each other to develop and share in the gifts of the Holy Spirit for God’s glory.
Our congregation is made up of over 150 adults, plus a significant number of children and young people who are an important part of the church family. We also have a very ‘local’ feel as the majority of us live within 20 minutes drive of the church, which enables us to devote time throughout the week to each other and to community activities.
St Mark’s is committed to keeping everyone safe and well in all our buildings and activities and follows the guidelines of A Safe Church.
We have two Sunday services at 10.30am and 6.30pm.
Both are generally informal in style, with times of sung worship (led by a group of musicians and singers in a contemporary style), bible readings, a sermon, prayers, and often a time of response/reflection.
Our services are also streamed on Youtube and Facebook for you to enjoy at home.
Every Friday we hold a Health Hub at St Mark's Church from 13:00 - 17:00
A chance for you to meet people from your community. There are also workshops and free regular exercise classes.
Kennington youth hub
We are excited to announce a new Youth Project linking St Mark's Church with St Stephen's Church.
We are starting a new book and would like to extend an invitation for any new members to join us! The new book is Failure by Emma Ineson, reflecting on what failure is, and what Jesus said about sin and making mistakes, while asking how we can make the most of life in a world where we will experience failure at times. Our first discussion, covering chapters 1-3, will be on Saturday 20 May at 11am. For more details and if you would like to join us, please let Sam know: firstname.lastname@example.org
