Changes have been introduced to keep you, and others, safe under COVID-19 regulations. From 8th August it is compulsory to wear a mask or face covering in church. There is a limit on the number of places available. Your name and contact number will be taken on entry, for Test & Trace purposes. These will be kept for 21 days only.

No singing by the congregation is yet permitted. However, our Director of Music, Andrew Wilson, and other St Mark's Choir members, will sing in a small group to make a musical offering and the organ will be played.

Choral Evensong

In normal times the choir of St Mark's sings Choral Evensong on the fourth Sunday of each month.  Whilst restrictions mean that this is not currently possible you may like tolisten to a BBC R3 broadcast.  If you are new to Choral Evensong why not try it, by clicking on the logo and, hopefully, will then come to join the congregation at St Mark's once we are again able to hold the service
