Bishop Mark Nicholson, a man full of Godly wisdom, is married to Lauraine and has three children Stephanie, Abigail and Mark Austin.
In Croydon Bishop Mark is the Senior Pastor of ACTS CHRISTIAN MINISTRY: A church that is empowered by the Boldness of the Holy Ghost. It is perhaps, the first of its kind in Croydon with two churches coming together as one, intent on Kingdom Building. This new church, as in the book of ACTS, is modelled from ACTS 2: 41-47.
Bishop Mark was the senior Pastor of EICOG – Emmanuel Inspirational Church of God, a church led in the direction of this new movement, with a neighbouring church by the Power of God.
Bishop Mark is well versed, well travelled and has preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ transforming lives in several countries, notably South Africa, Nigeria, USA, Kenya and the Congo. Many opportunities have presented themselves as God continues to extend this ministry. Bishop Mark is an accomplished keyboard player and delights in playing the Hammond Organ, as well as playing the guitar and uses his musical ability to assist in taking praise and worship to a different level.
Bishop Mark serves the Community of the Borough of Croydon as a Magistrate appointed by the Lord Chancellor. He is determined to use his position to make a positive contribution to the community and encourage more people from ethnic minorities to join him as Justice of the Peace.
