Mark was raised in Fetcham and first came into contact with Cannon Court when he attended the Friday Club. At the age of 13 he suffered the trauma of losing his Dad, an event which had a profound impact on his life. In 1989 he came to know the Lord whilst attending a Crusader football camp. He was baptised in 1994 and became a member of Cannon Court fellowship. After leaving high school, Mark went to study at Leeds University. During his time at Leeds he met Fran. They married in 1997 and had two boys, Christopher and Marcus.

Mark joined the leadership of Cannon Court in 2007 and brought with him a welcome injection of younger blood! He has been responsible for leading the Friday Club for many years now and his IT skills have proved to be an extremely valuable asset to the fellowship.
