Church Open
for Public Worship

Coming back to church in these times is not an easy thing, and some people may feel that it is too soon to return.
That is absolutely fine, and we will look forward to welcoming you when you are ready.

A Guide to Public Worship at St Mark’s Winshill

As before we’ll be asking for you to:
~ Social distance and avoid socialising before and after the service.
~ Wear a face mask/covering.
~ ‘Track and Trace’ by writing name and phone number on paper slip.

Revd Philip Bosher holding his walking boots

I’ve have dug out my walking boots and trainers to take on the challenge of walking (and maybe running) a total of 300,000 steps through the month of May in support of Christian Aid.
For someone who rarely does more than 6,000 steps a day this will be a challenge for me, but it is nothing compared to those in places like Kenya that have to walk for hours each day just to get water.
Right now families struggle to survive without a reliable water source. Every day, they walk further, dig deeper and build stronger to survive. Unrelenting. Determined.

Do take the time to look at the Christian Aid Website to read the stories of people like Rose and Florence and their personal struggles.
Join me this Christian Aid Week as we stand together with those on the frontlines to battle coronavirus and fight for climate justice.
Please think about giving a donation and sharing this e-envelope with your family and friends.
Every Blessing Philip.

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.

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.

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