A warm welcome awaits you at St Mark's and we would love you to join us for our services. Unfortunately due to the current Coronavirus guidance the decision has been taken to close our church to public worship. Instead we livestream our Sunday 10am service on our Facebook page here;


And if you can't access Facebook our services are uploaded to YouTube and a link is placed on our ACNY page and Church blog. But if you would like to receive a direct link to the service please e-mail rev.craig@hotmail.com and one can be provided.
