Our People

Vicar - The Reverend Dr Tony Surman

Reverend Anne Mills

The Reverend Tony Surman was inducted as Vicar of St Mark’s, Remuera, in February 2018. Tony comes to us from the Parish of Sandringham, where he was Vicar, prior to which he was Precentor at Auckland’s Cathedral of the Holy Trinity. He was ordained priest in 2009 and in 2015 was awarded a PhD in Theology from the University of Auckland via a thesis entitled ‘Ministry, Order and Ordination: continuity and change in ordained ministry in the Anglican Church in Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia.’ He has a background in science and technology, and an abiding fascination with God as revealed by the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  

Director of Music and Organist - Brian Millar

Brian has been involved with music from an early age. He was taught piano by his mother, and joined his first church choir as a teenager. He then sang with the Te Atatu (now Waitakere) Men's Choir, filling the role of acting conductor for several months, before joining Auckland Choral, Auckland's only symphonic choir. During his 30 years with Auckland Choral, Brian served as a committee member for 11 years and co-deputy conductor for five. He was a co-founder of the West Auckland Combined Churches Choir.

Brian is a skilled composer, having written several psalm settings, a number of short sacred pieces and two major choral works. He has also arranged music for choir and congregation.

Brian became Director of Music at Saint Mark's in May 2011.

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
