Due to the rise in covid rates in our area, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our building for services to protect our vulnerable members and ensure we don’t add to the strain on the NHS. But we remain the church – supporting each other, praying for each other, and seeking to be disciples of Christ. And our church services continue online. Each week we will (hopefully!) have a Zoom service, a service uploaded to YouTube, and a service on paper for people to use as individuals, in households, or over the phone. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for zoom codes, or to be sent a copy of the paper service. Search for St Marks Hitchin on YouTube to find our videos.
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 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 still host funerals, and you are welcome to contact us about that.
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.
