Welcome to St Mark’s!
We welcome everyone. No exceptions.
We extend a special welcome to those who are single, married, civil partnered, divorced, widowed, LBTQI+, questioning, well-heeled or down at heel. We especially welcome wailing babies and excited toddlers.
We welcome you whether you can sing like Pavarotti or just growl quietly to yourself. You’re welcome here if you’re just browsing, just woken up, or just got out of prison. We don’t care if you’re more Christian than the Archbishop of Canterbury, or haven’t been to church since Christmas ten years ago.
We extend a special welcome to those who are over sixty but not grown up yet, and to teenagers who are growing up too fast. We welcome keep-fit mums, football dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems, are down in the dumps, or don’t like ‘organised religion’. (We’re not that keen on it either.) We offer a welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or are here because granny is visiting and she wanted to come to church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced, both or neither. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a prayer right now, had religion shoved down their throat as kids, or got lost and wound up here by mistake.
We welcome pilgrims, tourists, believers, seekers, doubters… and you.
Okay, so we’re not there yet. But the above is our aim. Come join us.
Welcome to The Bishop of Kingston!
St Mark’s is the new home of the offices of the Bishop of Kingston, the Archdeacons of Lambeth and Wandsworth, and their PA’s—it is a pleasure to welcome them.
