life events services for our community

Baptismal shell



St Mark's welcomes everyone who wishes to be baptised or have their children baptised.  This could take place as part of our regular morning service or as a special service later in the day.  During our morning service, familes have the option of their children joining in with Sparx, our childrens' section.   There is no charge for use of the church for a baptism.  

Wedding flowers


St Mark's Methodist church is available for weddings, including same sex weddings.  Our Minister, Reverend Rachel, will be delighted to talk over the details of the service you would like for your special day.  Our church stewards would be on hand to guide your guests to their seats and ensure that the service goes smoothly.
