A bit about St Mark’s…

We try to celebrate the wonderful diversity of human life, believing that Jesus revealed God’s extraordinary love for all people. We value our God-given gifts which come in different shapes and sizes. We delight in our ability to ask questions of life and of faith. None of us is perfect so we have much to learn from one another.

As we are attracted to the big questions of life, so we also believe that we are called to engage with our world and challenge the barriers which seem to separate the sacred from the secular or which try to define us according to categories such as gender, sexuality, wealth, race, ability or age. We are not afraid of being political but we try not to be partisan. We value the shape of Anglican liturgy and weave in contemporary and creative expressions of prayer.

St Mark’s is affiliated to Inclusive Church, is a One Body One Faith visible congregation and a member of the Progressive Church Network, and we are committed to fostering a spirit of openness and generosity.
