St Mark’s Church is very much a local church with most of the congregation living in the parish. We believe that we are inclusive and friendly. We have close links with the local learning disabled community, local care homes, Teddington Memorial Hospital and with St John the Baptist Church Hampton Wick.
Our worship is focused on the Eucharist. We use Common Worship at 10am on a Sunday and the Book of Common Prayer at our Tuesday 10am service and at 8.30am on the first Sunday of the month . Our music is traditional as we sing hymns which are led by our choir. Under Revd Karen’s leadership we are learning some of the newer worship songs as well as some Taize chants.
We run a Messy Church on the second Sunday of the month from 2.30-4pm.
If silence and mindfulness are appealing in a busy world we run a service that explores the riches of the Christian contemplative tradition in a mindful way. This is usually on the last Sunday of the month but check the calendar for times as this service does move around a bit.
We are a prayerful church with Morning Prayer said in the church on a Monday and Friday at 9am. On Tuesday there is a prayer group that meets in the church for prayer at 9am and on Wednesday and Thursday we join with local churches for morning prayer (Wednesday at St Mary and St Alban and Thursday with St Peter and St Paul.)
The church is open from 9am to around 5pm everyday as a quiet space to pray, light a candle or just be still.
