The congregation of St Marks will be delighted for you to join them for worship or to visit the church. We have a weekly Sunday service, usually at 9.00am, as well as special services for festivals. Full details on our website. The church has strong links with the village school, and children are very welcome at all services, with especially family-orientated services on the second and fourth Sundays of the month. To arrange baptisms, weddings or funerals, contact the Rector.

As I write this it’s March already, and we’re looking forward to the Spring, wondering how we missed seeing January and February pass us by!
There are plenty of signs of spring in our Churchyard. The primroses are in bloom on the north side of the church, smiling at us as we walk down the path. The daffodils are just waiting for this cold spell to pass over, and then they will be adorning the Churchyard in yellow. Continue reading “April News from St Mark’s Church.”
March is here, and we look forward to all the wonderful things that Spring brings us. Spring flowers are beginning to peep through the grass in the Churchyard; lovely to see, that despite the drought of last year and the heavy rain, plants are still there, ready to greet us again. My turn-over calendar has some lovely thoughts on it, one of them says ‘God sends us presents every day. Dawn and sunset, lets face it folks, He’s crazy about us’.Continue reading “St Mark’s News for March 2023”
Sunday 25th December 9.00 am – Christmas Day Service
There are other Christmas services at St Margaret’s and St Mary’s in the Parish but I need to find out from the Rector what the timings are because this hasn’t been decided yet. I’ll let you know soon.
I’m writing this in early November, and I feel that Christmas is almost upon us. That time of fun, families, and conspicuous consumption, although the latter might be a little more restrained this year!
A good number of shops and garden centres started decorating in September, which I think is a bit premature; tv channels are already wallowing in Christmas-themed films about good-will to all men; always with a happy ending, and hey, Strictly Come Dancing is on again – a sure sign that Christmas is around the corner.

So, what has been happening in and around St. Mark’s?Well, we had a lovely Harvest Service on 25th September. We sang the old favourite Harvest Hymns and felt that everything was ‘safely gathered in’. The school had also had their Harvest Service, so we had all their produce displayed in the Church. Nowadays the gifts that are given tend to be the packet and tinned variety, rather than fresh produce, as it all gets taken to the Food Bank for distribution, where it is very gratefully received.
The flower ladies had done their usual excellent job of decorating the Church, so that was a lovely welcome, and we thank them for their faithfulness in doing the flowers.
There was also a beautiful exhibition of Harvest pictures by the school children displayed in the Nave of the church. Continue reading “St. Mark’s Church News – November”
In accordance with instructions from the Chichester Diocese St Mark’s Church will be open for remembrance and private prayer during the day as usual.
There will be a book of condolence for anyone to sign if wished.
Soon we will be celebrating Harvest in the Buxted and Hadlow Down parish. This year St Mark’s Church is celebrating first, on the weekend of 25th September; St Mark’s School will be having their Harvest assembly on Friday 23rd. Continue reading “ST MARK’S CHURCH NEWS – September 2022”
