St Mark's Shared church in its existing location was opened in 1982 and subsequently a new wing was added. It is a joint venture between the Church of England, Methodist and URC denominations. The church previously met in a hall in Saville Crescent and at that time St Mark's was part of Headley parish - is now a parish in its own right. As a LEP (Local Ecumenical Partnership), St Mark's welcomes people from a wide range of denominations or none. It is part of the Guildford Anglican diocese, the East Solent and Downs Methodist circuit and the Wessex URC synod. All meet together as a whole and united congregation. We all worship together and everyone is welcome.
“A heart for God and a heart for Bordon"
