Come join this family who has been here for over 150 years, worshipping, praying, and trying to serve, care for and love people, especially those who are marginalized or in great need.
We have a beautiful structure here at 19th and Central Ave. It has been a place for people to gather since the beginning of Cheyenne. Located in the heart of downtown, St. Mark's Church is known as the pioneer church of Wyoming for its long and established history since 1868.
The second and current church edifice had its first service on August 19, 1888. The building stone is Castle Rock rhyolite and the interior is absolutely beautiful with primarily oak wood resembling an upside down ark with marble floor. The inspiration for the design of St. Mark's Church is said to be Stoke Poges Church outside of London, which was begun in 1080 A. D. The former old Leader newspaper of Cheyenne describes its general contour as somewhat resembling the imaginative pictures of ancient castle halls, being simply massive in appearance and impressing one with the idea it is "built on a rock." From this base the church ministry aspires to reach out into the community in a myriad of ways.
