The congregation at St. Mark’s originated in people's homes in Beechwood West, before moving to a builders’ hut and then the Community Centre when that opened in October 1976. The membership has always been of an ecumenical nature and continued to be so when the present building was opened in October 1981.
Situated and signposted just off Beechwood Avenue, next to Hill View School, the church stands in its own grounds, with ample car parking. Inside there are no hard pews, just comfortable seats, no pulpit and no organ. It has an adaptable worship area, but no separate space for meetings.
The Church of England regards St. Mark's as the Parish Church of Hallwood Ecumenical Parish.
