St Mark’s Church exists to make known the ‘gospel’ or ‘Good News’ of Jesus Christ across Caia Park and Wrexham.
This happens in two ways:
- We seek to show practical love and support to all who need it through prayer, friendship and activities such as the food bank and food for children during school holidays.
- To demonstrate that knowing Jesus for yourself can transform your life now and forever.
St Mark’s Church is built at the highest point on Caia Park. It was opened in 1962 to provide an Anglican place of worship on the estate. Today, there are a growing number of services and other activities. People of all faiths and none are welcome to come and join us.
We work in partnership with the other churches Anglican churches in the Mission Area of Wrexham, St Anne’s Roman Catholic Church, Caia Park and Rock Chapel, Smithfield and many other churches of differing traditions across Wrexham and beyond. We also work with many other agencies supporting lives on Caia Park.
