St Mark’s English Church is an Anglican church in Florence, Italy. We are a chaplaincy of the Church of England in the Diocese in Europe and serve all English-speakers who find themselves in Tuscany or Emilia Romagna.
Our church’s interior is a jewel of the Pre-Raphaelite movement. William Morris stencilling and richly-coloured decoration adorns the walls and memorials commemorate the rich history of the English-speaking community in Florence.
We have regular services of worship: Sung Eucharist takes place every Sunday at 10:30 (for others, please see the Events calendar via the link or at the bottom of this page).
Many people are surprised to learn that St Mark’s receives no financial support from the Church of England, or from local or national Governments. Our central Florence location is wonderful, but it’s a big building to maintain and we pay the same taxes as designer fashion stores! Therefore we rely entirely on the generosity of those who use our premises or benefit from our ministry. These donations are vital to our continued outreach and ministry here in Florence and beyond.
