St Mark's Church is in Basford, Staffordshire, England. It is an active Anglican parish church, in the deanery of Newcastle-under-Lyme, the archdeaconry of Stoke-on-Trent, and the diocese of Lichfield.


St Mark's was built in 1914–15, and designed by the Lancaster architects Austin and Paley. At that time only the east end and three bays of the nave and aisles were completed; the west wall was intended to be temporary. In 1928–29 the same practice added new vestries at a cost of £1,450. The west wall was rebuilt, and the rest of the church was completed in 1971, by Charles R. Lewis.
