Welcome to St Mark’s, Your Church in South Farnborough

A place with a great history and an exciting future.

We’ve been meeting together right here in the middle of our community since the 1880’s,
and are looking forward to doing so for many years to come.

The three things that make St Mark’s such a great place to be are

Faith, Food, & Friendship
Faith- people of faith worshipping God, loving Jesus, inspired by the Holy Spirit

Food- always something to eat, including an amazing Sunday breakfast each month!

Friendship- lovely welcoming people, who love to meet together and share
Come on in and see what’s going on in your church in our community.
Hope to see you soon.

Rev Phil Roche & LLM Helen

At St Mark’s we celebrate being an ‘open church’.
But what do we mean by ‘open church’? 
It’s really simple.  We’re a church that is open for everyone, and everyone is welcome, because that is what we believe church is all about.  Another way to describe it is family, and everyone is part of the family.
As an open church we come together as a family, we worship as a family, we celebrate who we are as a family, and we have fun as a family. 
Being an ‘open church’ has a real impact on the values we share.
One of our key values is we are inclusive of all people.  We try not to draw distinctions between people using measures or barriers that have been invented by people.  These are often barriers and labels that are designed to keep us apart.  Instead we meet everyone as who we are, because that’s how Jesus meets us.  Jesus meets us and loves us as who we are. 
Jesus taught us to ‘love our neighbour as ourselves’, and part of the meaning of this is that we love each other as the people we are.  And, we can receive the love of other people as who they are.
So what can we expect when we come together as a family?
We really mean coming together as a family.  We all worship together, with reflection, prayers, singing, and sharing bread and wine.  The younger members of the family have an opportunity to share an activity, under the watchful eye of Marcus- our friendly lion- and team of children’s leaders. 
We also share time to chat and drink tea (or coffee)- there’s always time for tea at St Mark’s- definitely more tea Vicar!

Please come and see how ‘open church’ is at St Mark’s.
