To be a growing, joyful community serving Christ
Our Goals: Growth, Family and Worship
- Growth: to develop discipleship within the Church family, strongly encouraging fellowship and social interaction across the Parish
- Family: to develop our relationship with young families, particularly those who bring their children to the Church for Baptism.
- Worship: to ensure that the services offered are effective in guiding the Parish towards achieving its vision.
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's in Warwick as well as in four (4) other daughter 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.
A prayer for the choosing of an incumbent
give to this Parish a faithful pastor
who will faithfully speak your word
and minister your sacraments;
an encourager who will equip your people for ministry
and enable us to fulfil our calling.
Give to those who will choose, wisdom,
discernment and patience,
and to us give warm and generous hearts,
for Jesus Christ's sake. Amen.
A prayer for the growth of God’s church:
- God of mission,
- Who alone brings growth to your Church,
- Send your Holy Spirit to give
- Vision to our planning,
- Wisdom to our actions,
- And power to our witness.
- Help our church to grow in numbers,
- In spiritual commitment to you,
- And in service to our local community,
- Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

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)

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.
