Reverend Mark Wilks (c. 1829 - 5 June 1894) was a Congregational minister and educationist.

Born in Stepney, Wilks trained for the ministry at New College, Hampstead. He had charge of a church in Basingstoke, Hampshire for four years before returning to London in London in 1862.

For the next 32 years, until his death, he was minister of Holloway Congregational Church.

In November 1875 he was elected to the London School Board to fill a casual vacancy in the representation of the Finsbury Division which included the Holloway area. He was re-elected at school board elections in 1876, 1879, 1882 and 1885, retiring from the board in 1888.

He was a leading member of the school board as the chairman of the School Management Committee.

He died at his home in St Bartholomew Road, Holloway, in June 1894, aged 65.
