Welcome to St Mark’s Woodthorpe

St Mark’s is a vibrant parish church that seeks to be a blessing to its community. We are like a big family of all ages and stages, exploring faith, doing life together and responding to the needs of our neighbourhood and city.

Our values at St Mark’s are ‘All Welcome; All Involved; All Sent’. This means that we are all about inclusion, welcome and celebrating diversity. We seek to involve everyone, drawing upon each other’s unique gifts and talents. And we recognise that we are sent into the world to serve God and our neighbour, through the jobs we do
and the lives we lead.

Church is so much more than the building and during this season of lockdown we have expanded our vision of what it means to be a community, using technology to bring us together. Online church has enabled us to worship and reflect; Sunday morning Coffee & Chat via Zoom provides us with the opportunity to catch up with one another, and a variety of mid-week groups enable us to get to know and support each other better.


This week’s video is all about “How the Bible can renew God’s people post lockdown” brought to us by Scripture Union.

In these challenging times, St Mark’s is caring for the community through practical action, pastoral support and prayer. If you would value a conversation with Matt or Jack, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
