Welcome to the Anglican Parish of Warwick
St. Mark's Anglican Church
We seek to be a growing joyful community serving Christ.
Welcome to the home page of the Anglican Parish of Warwick. Warwick is a thriving town of 12,000 people situated 160 kilometres south west of Brisbane bordering on fertile farmlands and the rolling hills of the Great Dividing Range. The area was settled in 1840 by the Leslie brothers who began the tradition of the pastoralist, sheep and wool industry in Queensland. Anglican worship in this area commenced in 1848 and continues today in the beautiful sandstone Church of St. Mark in Warwick as well as in six other churches within the parish.
Through the efforts of many dedicated lay people, the Anglican Church in Warwick delivers special ministry to the aged people in our local nursing homes, hospitals and the house bound. Home communion and hospital communion are taken, and special follow-up visits are made to those who have recently left hospital. In addition there are active bible study groups seeking to discern the Word and will of God. We look forward to welcoming you into our faith community.

Looking for tasty, homecooked catering
The ladies of St. Mark's Women's Guild are here to help, when it is most needed.
We offer inexpensive catering to suit your budget and tastes, particularly for wakes following a funeral which can have been held at any location. We can serve you and your guests in our St. Mark's Parish Hall or deliver food to your home or other local venue.
We offer this community outreach as a service to complement
our Parish Fundraising Activities.
Sunday School has recommenced in 2018.
A committed group of people are now offering a place where children can be nourished in faith through stories and activities that give them a basic understanding of what it is to be a baptised Christian and a beloved child of God.
Prep to Year 7 The Children start in Church with a short story and prayer and then proceed to Sunday School for about 40minutes before returning to Church for a blessing, a time of sharing and morning tea. We would love for your child to be part of St Mark's Sunday School. (School term only, does not run on School holidays)
Dianne Winterton, Co-ordinator on 4661 7532 or simply come along to the 8.30am Sunday Service at St. Mark's.
St Mark's 150th Anniversary in 2018
In March 2018, St Mark's Anglican Church of Warwick celebrated the 150th Anniversary of the laying of its dedication stone by Bishop Tufnell. However, due to soft stone and the difficulty of establishing adequate foundations, the landmark Church is now in need of extensive repair estimated at approximately $1 million. Can you help, all donations are gratefully received.
