2024 marks the 70-year anniversary of The Friends of St Mark’s, with a series of events organised to celebrate this milestone. The Friends was established in 1954 as a group desiring to connect people with each other and St Mark’s, while furthering the life and ministry of the church.

The Friends of St Mark’s welcomes members of all ages and anybody for whom our beautiful church has a special meaning, regardless of whether or not they attend church. The group is keen to draw people together and rekindle our broader community connections. We are planning a series of events and hope community members can join us. These will include an annual service and lunch, regular addresses by distinguished speakers on a broad range of topics, musical concerts, and a variety of social events. Click here for our 2024 calendar of events.

Join us for our Choral Evensong (Evening Prayer) service on Sunday 23 June 2024 at 3pm. This service will include choral music by three great English composers, sung by the St Mark’s Choir. Click here for more details:
