COVID19 - Update

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Monday 23rd February and subsequent instructions from the Bishop of Birmingham we must now sadly take the step of closing St Mark’s Church. This means there will be no public access until further notice.

I will continue to write sermons on the Sunday Mass readings and send them out to all those of you for whom I have an email address (if there is someone you know who is on email, would appreciate a copy of the weekly sermon and is not included in this mailing please let me know).

If you are in contact with other members of our congregation by telephone or via social media could you please also let them know of the closure of the church building.

Love & prayers

Fr Philip.




to Saint Mark’s Website.


Saint Mark’s Church serves the Parish of Kingstanding which lies to the north of the city of Birmingham. The church building was consecrated in 1971 and along with our Parish Centre provides a flexible, modern building in which both worship and a variety of community projects are able to work side-by-side to serve God and his people amongst whom we live and work.

This is an anglo-catholic church proclaiming the Gospel and the Sacraments in the modern catholic tradition under the Episcopal care of the Bishop of Ebbsfleet with a lively and varied musical tradition and the assurance of a warm welcome to all.

The Mass is celebrated throughout the week and the Sacrament of reconciliation (Confession) is offered by prior arrangement with the parish priest.

Arrangements for baptisms, weddings and for the reading of banns of marriage can be made in church on Saturday mornings at 10:30am.

We hope you will find this website useful and informative but if you require any further help please contact us on 0121 3607288.

Father Philip Calvert

Parish Priest.
