A short video about prayer walks from the Church of England.

The point of prayer walking isn’t about being seen to pray;
it’s about seeing and praying.
You can pray quietly or in silence.
However, don’t be afraid to pray out loud if you feel compelled to.

If you have any need for additional support, emotional or spiritual, for prayer or for daily practical needs please do speak up.

Ministry Team at St Mark's Church

Welcome from Revd Philip Bosher

Thank you for taking the time to look at our website.

St Marks Church is a part of the Church of England, and ministers to the local community of Winshill on the outskirts of Burton-upon-Trent. The current church has been a prominent part of the local landscape for 150 years.

You can find out plenty about its history and structure on this site, but while it is interesting to look back and see where we have come from, I hope that you will be see that we are a church for today not of the past.

A Church that is forward looking and outward facing, striving in all that it does to reflect our faith in the God who we see most fully in the person of Jesus Christ. We seek to reflect the love of God as fully as we can, through prayer, worship and action.

Protecting children, young people and vulnerable adults is the responsibility of us all, whether they are in the communities in which we live or part of our Christian family.
