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 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.
Easter Day may have marked the end of Lent, but it is the beginning of a new resurrection journey in the churches calendar. We prepare for Christmas with Advent, and Easter through Lent, but for some reason we don't spend time preparing for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost (15th May). However, over the next six weeks with the help of the Gospel of John and readings from Acts 2 we will be exploring different aspects of the resurrection journey: doubts and gifts, transformation, believing and belonging and loving as Jesus loves - serving others and loving people we don't choose to love.
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
