Welcome to St Mark’s English Church, Florence!

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).

The church is also a unique venue for weddings; concerts; music and a wide range of artistic, literary and cultural events for visitors and locals alike.

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.

Thank you.

St Mark’s Florence

St Mark’s Church in Florence is one of two worship centres that form a chaplaincy of the Church of England in the Diocese in Europe.

We have been serving the people of Tuscany, and the many visitors to the area on our current Florence site, for over 132 years. With the Sunday Choral Eucharist at the centre of its active liturgical life, St Mark’s also has an extensive music and cultural scene, with its choir, opera and classical music performances, as well as many concerts performed by visiting choirs and musicians. To this is added a wide variety of other cultural events that bring people together in artistic, literary or academic endeavour.

Thank you for visiting our site and we look forward to welcoming you to our chaplaincy.


Our church is an inclusive community which welcomes diversity, promotes equal treatment, and seeks to eliminate discrimination.
