St. Mark’s

St. Mark’s Aims

Our goal is that people encounter Jesus and be sustained and grow in that encounter.

To achieve this goal we have aims divided into five areas.

1. Leadership and Organisation

  • Establish an organisational structure that supports leadership, administration, discipleship, mission, pastoral care, youth, finances, property, ministry, and community.
  • Develop an every member ministry and enable everyone to exercise their vocation or calling.

2. Property and Infrastructure

  • Maximise the usability, functionality, flexibility, and accessibility of our spaces to bless both the congregation and the wider community.

3. Children and Families

  • Reach and connect with young people in the parish through church-based activities and schools work.
  • Provide relevant opportunities for people to meet and gather in both church and non-church locations.
  • Respond appropriately to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of people in both our congregation and the wider community.
  • Invite both church and non-church members to join God’s mission through participation in our outreach projects.
  • To provide opportunities for ongoing discipleship and spiritual growth both online and in person.

4. Business and Finance

  • Encourage people to donate or tithe through providing transparency and communicating about how our money is allocated.
  • Be good stewards of our finances and resources through developing a culture of careful management and procurement.

5. Worship and Prayer

  • Encourage people to encounter God by providing relevant worship that embraces both traditional and contemporary elements.
  • Ensure our worship is accessible and seeker-friendly through removing barriers that might impede or hinder people connecting with God.
  • Extend God’s love to the wider community by inviting groups to participate in our worship and receive God’s blessing.
