Church Family is the St Mark’s way of describing the people who regularly participate in church life at St Mark’s, and who also contribute however their gifts and capacity allow.

You don’t have to be an Anglican to be part of our church family.

We encourage participation in home groups and regular Sunday attendance, alongside active personal and corporate prayer.


How can you give to St Mark’s and St Philip’s?

Gift Direct Scheme
Easiest way to give, as the Church in Wales processes the payments for us. You choose how much you want to give, which is taken by Direct Debit from your bank account on 6th of each month. The Church in Wales also reclaims tax for us on all eligible payments.

Donations direct to church bank accounts
Direct transfers to our bank accounts. Regular or one-off donations go into the General Fund. Can also donate to specific funds – please put the name of the fund in the reference.

Cashless Giving
Donate at church using the cashless giving machine – for the general running of the church or specific projects.

Charity Credits
Both charity vouchers and online donations can be used for regular or occasional giving.

Gift Aid
If you are a taxpayer, please sign a Gift Aid Declaration as this increases your gift by 25%!
