Funerals at St Mark's Church


For Christians, as for everyone else, the death of a loved one is a sad occasion, but it does not strip life of meaning or cause a sense of hopelessness because we know that God is more powerful than death and has demonstrated that specifically through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We are happy to take the funeral of anyone at St Mark’s – regardless of their beliefs - and we endeavour to be as sensitive as possible to their values and understanding of life and death. That said, we are a church, and we reserve the right to express the church’s faith in the funeral service, to pray to God on behalf of those who are grieving and to commend to God’s keeping the person who has died.


A funeral at Saint Mark's will offer comfort to family, friends and other mourners, the commendation to God of the person who has died, and the committal of the body for burial or cremation.

We will work with you to ensure the service honours your loved one in a personalised and meaningful way.

Very frequently the refurbished Parish Hall is used as a venue for the reception that normally follows a Funeral Service. To view the inside of the church and hall please click on the following hyperlinks

More information on the process of booking the church and hall, and the costs involved, is available from the Parish Office (telephone 09 520 2258 or email office@stmarks.org.nz)



Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted

Dear Parishioners and Friends of St Marks

As we continue to do all we can as a nation to thwart the progress of the COVID-19 virus, churches and all other places of public gathering remain closed. The Church, as the gathered people of God, cannot meet person-to-person, but we are fortunate to have more means than any generation before us to stay in contact with one another. This website is one of the ways that the Parish of St Mark’s, Remuera remains a gathered people. We also remain in communion with one another by email, video conferencing and – not least, the telephone. And, vitally, we remain in communion with God through prayer. We are here for you. Get in contact with us via the means that suits you best (please see the contact list).
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his
countenance upon you, and give you peace.

                                                                 Numbers 6:24-26
