St Marks Anglican Church - Worship

Worship

The central act of our worship is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist. There are two regular Sunday services.

The Service at 8 a.m. is a Said Eucharist, using traditional language, with congregational participation in the reading of the lessons and the psalm, the recital of the Nicene Creed, and response throughout the service. It is a quiet spoken service, with no music and a short sermon. After the service, many of the worshippers go out for breakfast together.

 

The Sung Eucharist at 10.30 a.m. uses music to enhance our worship of God. The services alternate every other week between traditional and contemporary language, using the Book of Alternative Services (BAS). Lay persons are involved as readers, servers, intercessors and in the administration of Holy Communion. Sermons are succinct, challenging and focused on the Bible. There is a period for fellowship and refreshment, in the new parish hall, following the service. Healing, with anointing of oil, is offered at both services on the second Sunday of each month.
On Wednesday mornings, a said Eucharist is celebrated at 10 a.m. . These services are shared with St John the Evangelist Church on Pine Street on a monthly basis as follows: December, February, April, June, August –  St Mark’s; November, January, March, May, July – St John’s. Fellowship and refreshments follow.
