Mark Townsend


I am a member of OBOD and a Progressive / Eclectic Christian Priest. I served within the Church of England for over a decade but now offer myself in a broader and more inclusive way. I have over fifteen years’ experience of creating and performing special ceremonies for people from a variety of spiritual paths and traditions – including many who do not fit within any particular religious ‘box.’

Often people see themselves as spiritual (and believers in God / Goddess / Spirit) yet cannot equate their natural faith with any official religion. Others are more definitely Pagan, yet belong to families with a strong Christian connection, or are involved in a relationship with a person from another faith. Within all these contexts I am able to tailor-make special rites of passage that reflect the entire breadth of the situation with authenticity and respect for all. Welsh Border / Midlands – but will travel anywhere in UK or beyond.
“Mark was the perfect man to guide us through the beautiful ceremony of marriage. His warm caring nature meant that our service was perfectly adapted for us and our family. So many of our friends expressed how it was the most wonderful service they had ever been to and how true it felt. He is a unique Rev in every way!” ~Jade Jagger and Adrian Fillary

Learn more about Druidry and how to join the order

The practice of Druidry used to be confined to those who could learn from a Druid in person. But now you can take an experience-based course wherever you live, and when you enrol on this course, you join the Order of Bards, Ovates & Druids, and begin an adventure that thousands of people all over the world have taken. It works with the ideas and practices of Druidry in a thoroughly practical, yet also deeply spiritual way.
