About Us

The Present

St. Mark’s is a traditional Church of Ireland parish providing regular, ordered and dignified worship. It has a first rate choral tradition and also provides variety in worship e.g. family services on the first Sunday of the month. There are many organisations for old and young, male and female, providing those interested with an opportunity to build up the community in faith. The ethos of the parish is pastoral – concentrating on worship, teaching, preaching, administration of the sacraments and visiting.

The Future

In the next five years as in the previous five and the five before we hope to live up to our calling as the new creation where people of all types can encounter the grace and holiness of God. This as always is achieved through God’s gift of Himself in scripture and sacrament rather than through anxious striving or our part.
