Christ did not come so that we might have church and have it more often, he came so that we could have life and have it more abundantly. We would be delighted to have you share in this abundant life with us.
St Mark’s is a welcoming, inclusive community where questions are encouraged . . . we believe everyone has a place at God’s table.
We hope you will find at St Mark’s, many different ways into the life that is at the heart of the Christianity.
No matter where you are on your journey of faith, we would love for you to be part of the St Mark’s community. With regular worship services, social events, discussion and study groups, there will be something for you, no matter your age or stage of life.
When you join us for any of our services or activities, you will notice that many St Mark’s people wear a name badge, so please, if you’re feeling unsure about what’s going on or how things work, ask someone! They will be very glad to help you.
With roots in the Church of England, Anglicanism is a form of Christianity that rejoices in being ‘the middle way’.
We are part of the Diocese of Brisbane which is led by Archbishop Phillip Aspinall.
We love reading the bible and bible readings make up a large part of our liturgies. We take the bible seriously, but not literally.
We recognise that science and contemporary scholarship need to inform how we read the bible, and we recognise varied interpretations of the text.
We believe our faith and reading of the bible, should shape how we live and what we stand for.
On Sundays and Wednesdays we get together to be encouraged and to be given courage for our service to God and other people by sharing Holy Communion.
Our most common liturgy is the Eucharist, celebrated on Sunday at 7am, 8:30am, 10:15am
Our parish has a population of around 60,000 people spread over Buderim, Sippy Downs, Chancellor Park, Mountain Creek and Forest Glen.
