St. Mark's Church is a Pentecostal church in Dublin, Ireland. It was previously a Church of Ireland parish church. It is located on 42A, Pearse Street, Dublin 2, to the east of Trinity College., The church has three Sunday Services; 10am, 11:45am and 1:30am, with pre-service prayer at 9:15am.The churchThe church is a large building surrounded by a grassy churchyard, and was erected in the 1750s off what was then Great Brunswick St. (now Pearse St.). It was consecrated by the Church of Ireland Archbishop of Dublin, Charles Cobbe, on St Mark's day (25 April) 1757.St. Mark's closed in 1971. Its contents were distributed throughout the Church of Ireland, and the parish records were transferred to the Representative Church Body. After its closure the building was purchased by Trinity College, Dublin which used it occasionally for exams and lectures.The church was purchased by the Family Worship Centre, a Pentecostal assembly, in 1987, renovated, and re-opened as a place of worship.The parishThe parish was cut off from that of St. Andrew by Act of Parliament in 1707. It corresponded to the civil parish of the same name.The churchyardThe church was surrounded on three sides by a churchyard which contained a large number of graves. In the 18th and early 19th centuries it was a favourite target of body snatchers, owing to its proximity to Trinity College, which taught medicine. A wall was built around the churchyard to try to prevent access. In 1892-3 the wall was removed and a railing substituted.
