Warm greetings to you.
Saint Mark's is an oasis in the busy heart of Remuera, on the edge of the Newmarket shopping precinct. We have been part of Auckland since 1847, when the first church was built on the site.
We are a Christian church in the Anglican tradition that aims to provide compassion, care and support to its members, the community of Remuera and Newmarket and the wider Auckland community. We strive every day to live out our Mission Statement: "To know Christ and to make Christ known."
We offer a range of activities and opportunities for fellowship and personal growth. Guided by the Holy Spirit, we support and encourage each individual to develop their own personal strengths and gifts through prayer, biblical study, discussion forums, participation in groups, and Christian action.
Saint Mark's has a wonderful church building and Parish Centre facility, both of which are used and enjoyed by many within the church and the wider community.
In this Season of Ordinary time, the longest season in the churches year. This season stretches from the excitement of Easter and the Day of Pentecost to Advent when we begin to prepare for the coming of the Christ Child at Christmas. It is a time in the churches year where there are no major feast days or celebrations. But the message of this season is anything but ordinary. We live most of our lives in 'ordinary time' doing 'ordinary things' but if we are attentive to the journey of our lives it is anything but ordinary! As a church we are challenged in this season to reflect on the ways we imitate Christ in word, dead and action as individuals and as a community of faith.
You are very welcome at Saint Mark's, whether it is to pray, to sit in quiet reflection, to visit just for a short time or to join our faith community and take part in the many services and other activities that happen here.
Peace to you and your families throughout the coming weeks.
The Reverend Anne Mills
