Welcome to St Mark's!

St Mark's logoWelcome to the website of St Mark’s Anglican Church Pennant Hills.

You can watch a short welcome and introduction to St Mark’s from our Pastor here.

All the great fun and festivity of Christmas exists to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
This Christmas would you like to take an hour to reflect on why Jesus’ birth is still worth all the fuss? If you’re a regular church goer, or haven’t been for the last 2000 years, you’ll be welcome.

Our current Sunday preaching series is looking at the second half of the Old Testament book of Daniel. These chapters of Daniel are filled with vivid visions that help us understand where this world is heading and who’s driving. You can check them out on our sermons page.

Let’s face it, our senior pastor Craig is a Luddite (ask him to show you his phone some time). But even he knows how to use Facebook. So we have a Facebook page. Check it out.

Our current preaching series at St Mark’s is called ‘Committed to…’ It explores some of the key commitments that go with lives lived by faith, in response to God’s grace and mercy. You can check out the talks on our sermons page.

Our current preaching series at St Mark’s is from the New Testament book called Acts and we have entitled the series The Unstoppable Gospel. Acts is a page turner, so it is a fun series to preach. The word ‘gospel’ means good news? What is the good news that Christians are on about? If you want a good summary, check out the overview (with pictures!) that you’ll find here.

Why did they execute the guy who said “love your enemies?”

  • “Very clear and easy to understand”
  • “Great course, well structured”
  • “Very helpful in my struggles with Christianity”
