Church and Hall Hire

St Mark’s is the Parish Church of Woodcote, the church for the local community, and is a welcoming family of Christians of all ages

Welcome to St. Mark's

There is a strong sense of community surrounding St. Mark’s; many people visit the church and its halls on a weekly basis. But at the heart of all the activity is the witness of the church which for the last hundred years has been the focus of God's presence here, open to all who live in the surrounding streets.

St. Mark's is open daily from 9.00 a.m. until 4.00 p.m. for private prayer, and for those who wish to experience the peace and beauty of the church.

Please spend some time looking through our website, and discover more about who we are and what we do. The ‘About Us’ page is a good place to start.

For news and events view our upcoming events and our ‘What’s On’ pages.

St. Mark's is now part of an United Benefice with St. Swithun's.
