St Mark's Church, Kennington, is an Anglican church in Kennington, London, United Kingdom. The church is a Commissioners' church, receiving a grant from the Church Building Commission towards its cost. The architect was David R. Roper. The total cost of the church, including the land and other expenses, was £22,720. This was paid partly by the local parishioners and partly by Parliament through a grant known as "The Million Fund".

From 1879 to 1889, the Vicar of St Mark's was The Rev. Henry Montgomery (1847-1932), a clergyman who had been born into an Ulster Scots family in Cawnpore. He later served as Bishop of Tasmania. His son, who was born in Kennington, was Field Marshal The 1st Viscount Montgomery of Alamein.

On Saturdays a farmers' market is held in the churchyard.
