Handley Church History
Until 1970 the building for St Mark's Church was the village school and many of the current congregation have memories of schooldays there. The building is now a cosy church with modern stained glass and comfortable seating which can easily be rearranged to suit the various social events.
Outside the church, a sensory garden has been established and even boasts a statue of a lion, the lion being the emblem of St Mark.
The friendly congregation are especially pleased to welcome the Stretton-Handley school children, and their teachers and parents, to regular "grape and wafer" church services and there is a monthly family service which includes activities and games for children.
Craft Workshop Mornings
On one Saturday each month (roughly) a "crafty" group meet in St Mark's Church to make seasonal crafts and share tricks and techniques. See Events or the calendar for the next session.
