St Mark's Church

We have a very active link with St Mark's Church.

The Rev Rupert Higgins is active in his support and leads whole school worships, as does Miss Alex Morris, the children's worker.  She also leads two Y6 clubs in school - Connect for girls and Tribe for boys.

We are an all-age community of Christians from across Bournemouth and Poole who are seeking to follow Jesus in our daily lives.

St Mark’s Church has been here since 1870 and is a Church of England (Anglican) church.

In 1970 a more spacious porch was added to the church, allegedly so that brides could more decorously adjust their wedding dresses, but in 1986 growing congregations necessitated a major extension to the building.

A design was chosen that, although strikingly modern, fitted superbly with the original Victorian concept. The new design was built northwards from the original church and incorporated the chancel as a chapel.

The new memorial window, the warmth of the timbered roof and the gleaming brass of the chandeliers with tiers of sparkling globes are an inspiration to worshippers.
