In line with Government advice, most groups and organisations in the city have had to take the unfortunate decision to suspend face to face and group work activities. Please telephone or email the contacts listed for the group or organisation if you are interested in their work to check what alternative arrangements might be available or to find out about alternative groups or services in your area.

St Mark’s is a Eucharistic community, gathering twice a week around the table for communion. All are welcome to receive communion.

We meet twice a week for communion, after all our services our fellowship continues as we have refreshments together:

On Sundays at 10:30am, we have a sung Eucharist, using the 1982 Scottish Liturgy (modern words), we have a large Junior Church with children’s activities during term time for some of the service, and occasional creative worship when we have all the congregation together for the whole service.

On Thursdays at 10:00am we celebrate communion with the 1970 Liturgy (more traditional language). During the winter months (October-April) we meet downstairs in the crypt chapel, entering through the side door to the right of the church. During the summer months (May-September) we meet upstairs in the church.

On the first Tuesday of the month we meet at 2.45 for an informal service of communion using the modern language and including a short discussion around the gospel reading of the day.

All who wish to receive the bread and wine are welcome to do so. Alternatively, you can receive a simple blessing at this point in the service. If you struggle climbing the steps to the altar rail, please let a sidesperson know and we can bring communion to you in your seat. Gluten free wafers are always available, please make your need known.
