Welcome to St Mark's!
St Mark's is a friendly and inclusive church in the Anglo-Catholic tradition of the Church of England, where people of all ages and backgrounds come together to worship and grow as God's people.
We have close links with the wider community through the SWAN Network, Shiremoor Primary School and 1st Shiremoor Scouting Group. We have active and busy groups for young people, including our "Winged Lions" Sunday School, "Holy Hangouts" and "Come and Sing", and play host to Slimming World. We also run a lunch club during the week and seek to bring together and support our neighbours near and far.
St Mark’s is the local parish church for Shiremoor, West Allotment, Murton, Moorside, Northumberland Park, Earsdon View and Cobalt Park. We are part of the Diocese of Newcastle, within the Church of England.
You can find out what we've been up to lately by having a look at our Facebook Page.
Everyone is always welcome!
We believe in Inclusive Church: Church which does not discriminate, on any level,
on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality.
We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.
There are happily lots of children and young people, as well as a number of vulnerable adults, within our community here at St Mark's, so it's important to make sure that everyone is safe and happy. You can find more information about how we look after vulnerable groups, and how to report concerns, on our Safeguarding Page.
