St Mark’s At the Kestrel is a group that meets on the first Monday of every month at our local pub on Kempshott Lane.

While it may be mostly older men who attend this group, it genuinely is open to anyone and is attended by younger people and people of the female gender at times. It’s intended to be an alternative safe space where people, perhaps young in their faith, can just relax and chat. Faith and religion may come up but not every month.

It may not have the most ideal name, but it was changed from St Mark’s Old Gits (SMOG) so we’re still searching for names!

You can just turn up and ask at the bar for “the St Mark’s group” – the landlady is very friendly and helpful. Or if you’d like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact the church office here or you can phone us on 01256 840502.
