St Mark's Church




St Mark's Church building sits beside the Village Green in the centre of the village of Natland. But the church is bigger than just Natland. It is the church for the communities of Oxenholme, the Oaks, the Beeches, the Strawberry Fields and Natland Mill Beck on the southern edge of Kendal. It is a church built up of people coming from each community, and beyond, to worship God and support each other in their daily lives. Come along sometime and be with us, we would love to see you. Visitors are very welcome.
