Together @ St Marks
"I lift up my eyes to the hills—from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." Psalm 121
During times of crisis, Christians find hope, solace, comfort, and courage in their faith.
Together @ St Marks now provides messages, reflections, and words of hope and courage as long as we are facing this pandemic.
You're welcome to use the below resources to help you or your family continue to grow in faith at home.
Road Map - 19 July 2020

You will see from the photos below that we will follow government, church and health guidelines for the safety of all.
At this stage we can accommodate 30+ Pastor at each worship service.
We will reflect and review the frequency and times of these worship opportunities after this gathering in our church at Bombala Tce. on 19 July.
We are thankful that we can gather for Word and Sacrament as God’s people.
These are extraordinary times. Government and societal responses to the COVID 19 coronavirus have been fast moving as we respond to the spread of the virus.
I am convinced that we don't need to panic but we can trust in God during confusing times.
Our priority at St Marks is the need of our elderly, sick, frail and otherwise vulnerable.
We are respecting the advice and rulings from our wider Church leaders, government authorities and health officials - especially regarding hygiene, physical distancing and self isolation.
We returned to our worship space on 21 June and our next gathering is
19 July 2020.
We continue to worship as 'Church @ Home' while the threat is upon us.
You can worship at home alone or with your household.
Each week we will connect with a Devotion on Monday, Music and Prayer midweek and Sunday worship resources emailed and uploaded by Friday.
Printed copies can be arranged if required.
You're welcome to follow us on our Facebook page.
Let us know if you are alone or need any help.
God's Word is where we look for reassurance, hope and peace.
The challenges facing the world today only reinforce the importance of being Calm, Confident and Christ-Centered.
