Welcome to St Mark's

St mark's Church, Bedford

On this part of our website you will see information relating to St Mark's Church and Community Centre. We are a Christian church with an ecumenical ethos welcoming people from a wide variety of backgrounds and we operate the busiest community centre in Bedfordshire serving Bedford and the surrounding areas.

Every day of the week we are open from 8.00am until late and we welcome people who come to over 60 community groups and charities based at our community centre. We are home to Open House, a day centre for people with learning disabilities, Brickhill Parish Counci, Bedford Credit Union and a preschool offering all day care for children from 2 years of age.

Use the links to find out more about St Mark's. We love to hear from our visitors, please E-mail us at:

If you would prefer to contact us by telephone, the church offices are open each day from 9.00am until 5.00pm.

Sunday services always start at 9.30am. There is a Sunday School and Crèche available. Why not bring your children or grandchildren?

We hope that for whatever reason you visit our church community centre you will find this to be a place of welcome. We are only able to provide such a community resource thanks to the help of a dedciated band of volunteers who help us keep the centre open, clean, garden, type and dozens of other essential skills and services - thank you to everybody!.



Congratulations to everybody at Open House who helped raise over £800 for BBC Children in Need. You make Pudsey Proud !
