St. Mark’s is the Anglican parish church in Highcliffe, and we hope to give you some insight and information about who we are and what we do.
Our Christian faith is at the heart of our mission in Highcliffe. We are a friendly, varied and supportive group of people who meet together to worship and work together to share our love of God in our community.
This website will give you a flavour of St. Mark’s, the people, organizations and events which build up our life together here, and, hopefully, help you to discover ways in which you can participate with us in our Christian fellowship.

‘..there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone’ 1 Cor 12. 4-6
The Apostle, Paul, reminded the people in the early church in Corinth, of the gifts that are given by God to those who follow Christ for use in His service. These gifts vary from person to person, but every person has their own unique gift that they can offer.
This week, let’s pause and give thanks to God for those gifts that He has given us and pray that He will direct us on how we may best use our gifts in His service.
