Changes to days when Church is open for private prayer

Dear All

In this constantly evolving situation, our plans may sometimes change within a matter of hours. The leadership team are meeting daily to ensure that we have the latest government guidance and instruction from the Church of England to inform our actions.

This morning, we have reviewed the request from the Archbishops, ‘that church buildings may, where practical, remain open as places of prayer for the community, observing social distancing recommendations.’ We have amended the days when the church will be available for private prayer to: Mon-Fri, 9am-1pm. Those visiting church must do so in accordance with the Government’s guidance on hygiene and distancing.

We anticipate this may be only temporary and the building may have to be closed soon and at short notice.

Please can we take this opportunity to encourage you to join us on Facebook for our first live-streamed Sunday service at 10am. We will also be live on Facebook, Mon-Fri at midday for daily prayer. If you ‘Like’ St Mark’s on Facebook you should be able to keep updated with new posts. Find out more at

In the strength of our loving Father,

The Leadership Team
