You are warmly invited to join St. Mark’s for worship and community life.
When you come you will notice that common prayer is an important part of how we worship together. Our services draw from a rich tradition of set prayers, either from the Book of Common Prayer, based on 16th century rites, or the more modern Book of Alternative Services (1985). The 08:30 am service in St Mark’s sanctuary is a said service using the Book of Common Prayer. The 10:00 am service at St Mark’s is a sung service using the Book of Alternative Services.
The Eucharist (also known as the Lord’s Supper or Communion) is a central part of our Sunday services.
Our services also follow a pattern that begins with the gathering of the community, then listening to and reflecting on the Scriptures. The community then brings the needs of the world and the community to God in prayer, and the group partakes in the holy meal of bread and wine, before being sent forth into the mission of daily life.
Our services follow the six seasons of the church year (Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, and Pentecost) and the lectionary, a set list of Bible readings for the year.
The 10:00 am service is followed by refreshments in the church hall.
