A very warm welcome to St Mark’s Church Harrogate.

We are a lively and multi-generational Church of England church in the heart of Harrogate with a charismatic, open evangelical style. We are passionate about journeying alongside all ages and backgrounds as they discover more of Jesus. We are people who party, proclaim and pray.

Whether you are new to faith, new to the area or simply looking for a church, whatever your situation we hope you will soon feel part of the family.

About who we are


Our nine core values shape our behaviour and guide our actions. Our values are a part of St Mark’s DNA, they are the cornerstones that shape how we relate to God, each other and world.


Marks of Membership

As a family, our desire is to see each one of our members fully embraced into life at St Mark’s. Although we don’t have any formal membership, to help to describe what it means to be fully part of St Mark’s Church we have four marks of membership.
