• Welcome to the website for St Mark's Church, Englefield. Details of services and other activities can be found here.
    For further information please contact the Rector, Rev Nick Wynne-Jones on 0118 9303595 or
     
     
     
    Sunday services:
    Further to the latest announcements, we have regretfully concluded that it would be unwise to gather in church for Sunday services. These will take place online until further notice. Please email
    office@stmarksenglefield.org.uk if you would like to receive the Zoom link each week.
     
    Our programme of Christmas carols and readings is still available here: https://youtu.be/JDyp2rMuZUs and St Mark’s remains open for private worship between 10.00am and 4.00pm. You might also be interested in two helpful resources: one is the excellent little leaflet ‘Christmas Hope in a covid world’, copies of which are in the church; the other is 'Prayers for Uncertain Times', a selection of short prayers published by Our Daily Bread Ministries which you can read online or download here: https://odb.org/resources/he-hears-us-prayers-from-an-ever-changing-world-to-a-never-changing-god
     
    Despite our disappointment at the continued restrictions, especially for those who are experiencing loss or loneliness at this time, it does, however, strip our seasonal thoughts down to the bare and glorious minimum: 'God with us'. As Psalm 23 puts it: 'The Lord is my Shepherd' and in that personal relationship we have the assurance of One who goes with us through the gloomy valleys bringing life and light. In the darkness, the Christmas message shines ever more brightly. May the light of His presence shine on you and guide you through the year ahead.
     
     
     

    Help at home:
    Please let Nick or the churchwardens know if you are in need of help in any way. There is a St Mark's contact list of volunteers who are happy to shop, collect medication, walk a dog or have a chat over the phone - you only have to ask! Call Nick on 0118 9303595 or Carol on 0118 9303182 or Torquil on 0118 9714536 and they will put you in touch with someone who can help.

     
     
    Letter from the Treasurer
    The lack of services in church has inevitably impacted on the income of St Mark's and we would be so grateful if you could take the time to read the letter here which explains the situation and how to help. Alternatively you can use this link to give via the church's justgiving page:
