Welcome to St Mark’s!
Updated November 2020
As we are back in lockdown, according to government guidelines the services held on a Sunday in St Mark’s may only be broadcast over the internet; congregation members are not allowed to attend in person. However, there are two ways you can join in:
- By Zoom: please contact the Vicar, Revd Clive Gardner (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like the Zoom link details.
The service will be a Eucharist broadcast from the Chapel beginning at 10 am, with the Zoom meeting open from 9.50 am.
- By YouTube: the Zoom service is uploaded to our YouTube channel a few hours after it has been recorded on a Sunday morning: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxvVoikDTVDA2rDRZKIsU6A. You can see the latest service on this webpage.
On Wednesdays, St Mark’s is open for private prayer from 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm. You are welcome to come and go at any time during this hour. Although it isn’t a service, a range of music is played (hymns, chants etc), there are periods of silence, and you are able to light a candle as a symbol of your prayers.
Other spiritual resources relating to the pandemic can be found here.
The Vicar (Reverend Clive Gardner) and the Pastoral Minister (Paula Thorvaldsen) are in regular contact with congregation members who are on their own or have particular needs. If you would like them to contact you, their details are:

source of healing and comfort,
fill us with your grace,
that the sick may be made whole,
that those who care for us may be strengthened,
that the anxious may be calmed,
and those most vulnerable be protected
in the power of the Spirit
and in the faith of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
