Church Path

Our church is in the middle of the village of Natland, on the east side of the village green. The church main door is situated on the side of the church. There is a step free tarmac path to the entrance of the church from the Village Green. We have a ramped entrance to the main door.

There is no church car park therefore parking is around the Green and on the road to the side of the church. The entrance from the side road is up steps.

There is are handrails on the left-hand side of the steps.

Back Gate Steps

Although St Mark’s church is a Grade II* listed building we welcome everyone whatever your age or need.

Refreshments are served in the church near the organ on a Sunday and in the vestry on a Thursday. Gluten free biscuits are available.

If you feel you need to walk around during the service, there is space at the back of the church near the font, please feel free to do so.

We have a sound system with a hearing loop. Large print hymn books and orders of service are available. We welcome all assistance dogs.
