 General Information on Services

St Marks Church is generally medium to high Anglican in faith with the celebrant usually being robed.  Every Sunday is a Holy Communion service starting at 11.00am.  The second Sunday each month is generally a 'Family Service' slightly less formal, with powerpoint and music group.
St Marks is particularly proud of its involvement with music. There is a music group with guitars and keyboard which play and sing at the family service each month and encourage the use of popular music in the church service. The music group are also available for specific fund raising events and concerts and these have proved to be very popular with the local church community.
The church has a good working organ and talented organist.  Church services which are not family services usually contain a range of new and traditional hymns using Hymns Ancient and Modern accompanied by the organ.  The family services are less formal and follow a theme. Here the hymns are generally modern and the Gloria whilst said at the formal service is sung in a lively manner at the family service.
The family services are always popular and generally well attended.
