Which Group

We have many groups at St Mark’s, meeting at different times, some daytime, some evening.

If you want to try a group, feel free. Just contact the leader. Working out whether the group is right for you will be a partnership between you.

If you want some help with deciding which might be most suitable for you, contact our homegroup overseer, Guy the vicar. He will be delighted to help you.
