In line with other Anglican churches, we have started to re-open our church building for a service on Wednesday morning at 9.15 followed by private prayer, and for private prayer on Sunday afternoons. This is subject to change as we adjust to the “new normal) so check our calendar (in the news and events tab) for details. We are not holding a Sunday service in the church yet, but see our calendar for our online services and other events. And do get in touch if you want someone to pray with you or just to talk to.
Welcome to St Marks! We are a vibrant and growing Church of England family with members from across the generations. We welcome all people of all backgrounds and ages. Services in our building are currently suspended, but the church is still very much functioning, and we are available for everyone, whether you are a long-standing church member or someone who is just starting to think about faith. Although we have a particular concern for the areas of Bearton and Westmill we have many member from further afield.
We love to welcome people into St Mark’s to celebrate those special times in life, such as baptisms (christenings), or weddings. You’ll find more details about these services under About Us. During the COVID-19 crisis, we are unable to host these in our church but you can still contact us about future plans. And while the church is closed, we are sadly unable to host funerals, although we can still help with pastoral care, and with the planning of memorials.
At St Mark’s we take the wellbeing of all our church family and our wider community very seriously. As part of this we are vigilant in our care and dealings with matters of safeguarding. Our policies on Safeguarding and contact details for our Safeguarding Officer, Pauline Banks, can be found under About Us.
We are proud to be members of Churches Together in Hitchin, and of the Team of Hitchin.
We are currently without a vicar, so if you’d like to get in touch with us then please contact Louise Wills, who is one of our church wardens, on 07812 520 256 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
