Weddings at St Mark's Church

 

St Mark’s Church is a popular wedding venue. Part of that popularity has to do with the traditional design of the church, with its evocative Victorian-Gothic decoration, a very capable pipe organ, and a long central aisle for bridal processions. But there is something else that draws people to this church and we like to think that that is a couple’s desire to commit to one another totally in love in the same way that Christ has committed himself to people in this parish, generation after generation, bringing meaning, hope and joy to those who call St Mark’s their spiritual home. Through your marriage here you become part of that mission of love in the world, and we would welcome your ongoing connection with the parish - through the baptism of your children, for instance, or the celebration of other important events in your life as a couple.

St Mark’s welcomes couples who seek Christian Marriage in the Anglican Tradition. One of the partners to the marriage needs to be baptised. This baptism does not have to have been conducted in the Anglican Church, but it does need to have been performed in the standard way – with water, in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. If neither you nor your partner are baptised, we are happy to talk with you about the sacrament of baptism (please see the section on baptism) and the possibility of you being baptised.

 

If you would like to be married at St Mark’s Church please contact the Parish Office in the first instance (telephone 09 520 2258 or email office@stmarks.org.nz ) and we will arrange for you to meet, as a couple, with one of the parish priests. S/he will talk with you about your relationship so far, the reason why you want to be married here, and will provide you with information about the wedding services we offer. If s/he is satisfied that everything is order, you will be invited to book your wedding and pay a deposit to hold that booking. St Mark’s has a well-appointed Parish Hall that is often booked by wedding couples for their reception. To view the inside of the church and hall please click on the following hyperlink.

Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God

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
