We are a thriving, inclusive, multi-generational congregation in a cosmopolitan, children friendly, suburban parish, blessed with two fantastic churches that have recently been renovated.

St Andrew’s and St Mark’s, Surbiton is a parish with both a growing congregation and a growing number of activities. While we have a fully engaged congregation with significant amounts of lay participation and leadership, we believe we have come to a point where, to achieve the next stage of our growth, we need an associate priest in addition to the vicar (and, at times, a curate).
