Welcome to St Marks! We are a vibrant and loving Church of England family with members from across the generations. We welcome all people of all backgrounds and ages. We are here 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 members 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.  We can also host funerals, and you are welcome to contact us about that.

We are proud to be members of Churches Together in Hitchin, and of the Team of Hitchin, and we are one small part of the great big Christian family that worships and loves all around the world!


On most Sundays we have a 10am Holy Communion Service, followed by tea & coffee. Sunday School takes place alongside the service.

On 3rd Sundays of the month we have an All-Age service at 10am followed by tea & coffee and then an 11.15am Simple Communion service.

On all Sundays apart from 3rd Sunday, we have a quiet 8:30am Communion service.

(Sometimes, though, we do something a bit different, so the best way to keep up-to-date is to contact admin@stmarks-hitchin.org.uk to be added to our mailing list!)


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 here.
