A Very Warm Welcome to St Mark in the Cherry Orchard Church
St Mark’s, with its angular brick structure but warm and friendly interior, has been the centre of Christian outreach to this community since almost the turn of the century. We, the present members of the Church family, realise our debt to those of an earlier generation who had the foresight and enterprise to build a Church here and to those, both ordained and lay, who have nurtured and sustained its ministry over the years.
Everyone is welcome to visit St Mark in the Cherry Orchard Church, just off Bath Road in Orchard Street; there is an adjoining car park. Services are on a Sunday 9.30 to 11am (service 9.30 – 10.30am) or Wednesday 10am – 11am (service 10 – 10.30am) Refreshments after services
We look forward to welcoming you at a service or as a user of the church hall
