At St. Mark’s we appreciate that people have different spiritualities which tend to preferences in the style of worship enjoyed. It is important for everyone to find a service which has the form and content which best allows them to draw close to God; therefore, we offer the following differing worship services in the hope that you will be helped in your discipleship journey :-
