Welcome to St Mark's Heyside web site.

  • Welcome to St Marks’ Church, Heyside 

    St Mark's Church will be open on each Sunday.  We have now re-introduced Sociasl Distancing in the whole of Church which now means we have a slightly lower capacity.  It is now mandatory that everyone need to wear a Face mask, before entering Church and all the time you are in Church, especially when singing.  It is now most important that you to book in for every service, prior to attending so that we don't get any bottlenecks when we have to record details for the NHS Test and Trace. .. 

    Please do not attend Church if you have had a positive Covid test or have symptoms of Covid.

    Revd. Canon Richard Hawkins will lead our worship this Sunday at our Eucharist   


    Please NOTE:  Our Sunday Eucharist starts at 09:30am.  

    We have also re-started our Tuesday morning Eucharist, in Church also at 09:30am


     Parish Church of St Marks’ has been the focal point for Christian ministry in the village of Heyside since was first consecrated in 1878.  Our Church's interior has been in it's present layout since a  major reorganisation in 1971.  We are a friendly congregation and welcome visitors or new members to our open, friendly Sunday morning Family Communion Services. 

    Our Sunday Communion Service starts at 09:30am each Sunday, but check the Calendar for special Service times.  Sunday school has NOT re-opened yet but under normal times, our Children join us in Church part way through the service from Sunday School which also starts at 09:30am in the Parish Hall. 

    There are a multitude of other activities which go on in the Parish, many based in our Parish Hall and Community Centre situated behind the Church and a major landmark in the village of Heyside as people travel from Shaw to Oldham.
