St. Mark, Church Street, Newtownards


St. Mark’s is a parish of 800 families, and attempts to meet a variety of worship needs with an Anglican setting. We use traditional and contemporary forms of worship on Sundays and on Wednesday mornings. We have many youth and adult organisations and excellent relationships with those of other Christian traditions. There are opportunities for people to discuss in groups the Christian faith. Our mission statement – At St. Mark’s we express our faith through worship and by our actions we attempt to apply with God’s help the message of Jesus Christ to everyday life.


St. Mark’s is located in Church Street near the centre of Newtownards, opposite the Community Hospital.
