Access & Inclusion

We believe that every person is created in God's image and we want St Mark's to be a place of welcome and accessibility for everyone. Join us as we learn to create a space of independence, freedom and inclusion. 


Unfortunately our T-Loop is currently out of operation at our Sunday Services whilst we install a new sound desk, this will be re-installed by the end of May to the beginning of June. We are sorry for the impact this has caused.


Please contact us at the church office

 to let us know if we can make any adjustments to make your visit to church more accessible.
