Liturgical style and practice

Perhaps the strongest symbol of welcome at St. Mark’s is that the church is set up in the round, with the altar in the center. There is no barrier between the clergy and the congregants, and no matter where one sits they are a part of the circle. We use inclusive language for God and sing rather than recite the Creed.
