Church open
for Private Prayer Only

Open every Sunday from 10.00 till 12.00 for Private Prayer.

A person (or single household) can pray on their own but we can not have any led services.

In these times of change and uncertainly, let us be one as a community and support one another.
The vicar is available as usual, as are our local groups like ‘Winshill Together‘ and ‘Staffordshire Cares‘.

A Service of Remembrance

Recorded on St Mark’s grounds for those unable to attend.
Lest we forget.

A Service of Thanksgiving and Remembrance for All Souls

Remembering those who we love, but see no longer.
We’re not able to meet for our normal Thanksgiving and Remembrance Service, so we have pre-recorded our full service last night.

We’d love you to be part of our usual Christmas shoeboxes appeal. This year has been difficult for us, there are thousands of children around the world for whom this year has been much, much harder. Please help to bring a little joy to their lives if you are able.

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.

Prayer Walks

We’ve created a selection of walks with audio commentary and prayers for you to follow.  Use them as you like to explore your local area, explore themes and ideas, and have space for prayer.

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.
