On Sunday 16th July, we bid a fond farewell to our minister Stuart and his wife Lesley.

Stuart has been with us for nearly 10 years and we are grateful for all that he has done for St.Mark’s and the communities of Raploch and Cornton.

Thanks to all our friends from local churches, community groups and schools who joined us for this special occasion.


We wish Stuart and Lesley every blessing as they move to Paisley where Stuart has been called to serve as a Pioneer Minister. This will be a challenging and no doubt rewarding role for Stuart, building on the work he has done among us here and bringing fresh insights to Paisley’s mission to the local community.

 For more information Contact us:

 Please note that due to a change in the Data Protection Act, the Hospital Trusts no longer allow access to Admission Lists. These lists previously allowed the ministry team to notice when a member or a parishioner was in a ward and pay a visit. 

The Ministry Team are happy to visit members who are admitted to hospital , however, visits to patients are very much dependant on either patients or the family of patients letting us know they are in hospital.

There are two ways of doing this: 

1. On Admission to a hospital: tell the nurse or secretary admitting you or your family member you would like a visit from the Minister from St. Mark’s Church. They will note your request on an admission form.

2. When a member of your family is admitted to hospital: contact the Minister either by telephone, Email or on a Sunday morning at Church.


The responsibility for letting us know you or a member of your family is in hospital lies with yourself or your family. If we are not told, we do not know who is in hospital.

In all cases, except for emergencies (and again is should be the family who contacts us), the permission of the patient is necessary. In some circumstances the visit of a Minister may be the last thing someone wants. Patient confidentiality is paramount.
