St Mark's Florence launches new website


Although Church of England worship has been held in Florence for almost 200 years, the present day St Mark's Church, on the Via Maggio, opened its doors for worship in 1881. Now this Florentine Church is the centre of a  vibrant parish which includes the congregations of the Holy Cross in Bologna and St Peter's in Siena. Besides offering offering a rich liturgical life, St Mark's is also a centre for the arts and music. There are even flats available for rental for visitors to this beautiful city. 

The parish mission statement reads:
Walking in the light of Christ, the Chaplaincy of St Mark’s Florence with St Peter’s Siena, and Holy Cross, Bologna, works constructively and inclusively together, as three places of Christian excellence and witness, in common with other Ministries of the Universal Church, for and with any people who find themselves in Tuscany and Emilia Romagna.
The Chaplain, the Revd William Lister, who is also the Area Dean of Italy and Malta, has just announced a brand new website for St Mark's which brings this venerable Church firmly into the 21st century. The site is very attractive and informative and worth a look. It can be found here

  1. What a very fresh and modern looking website! A real credit to the web designer - it is something to be proud of. Traditionally the church has always tried to use the best methods of communication available and in the 21st century that has to be the internet. The real trick will be to find a good webmaster who will keep it bang up to date. Good luck with it.
