Welcome to St Mark's Anglican Church, Darling Point. We're a community of worshippers that loves to meet new people, whether from our local area or around the world. We've been here a long time, and it is hard to miss our pretty building, but we are most of all a group of people seeking to live out the Christian faith in contemporary Australia and to support one another as we do it.
If you are looking to join a church, we'd love to meet you. At each of our three services, 8am, 10am and 5.30pm, you'll hear the Bible read and the word preached, you'll share in prayer to the God and Father of Jesus Christ, and you'll hear the praises of God sung.
We very much look forward to your visit.

David retired from full-time paid ministry in 2006. After working in Newcastle and Bendigo parishes he had been Rector of Yagoona, Leichhardt and Austinmeer. He has been part-time at St Mark's since September 2012 and recently celebrated 50 years as a minister. David and Pam have two adult children and two granddaughters. The main un-christian characteristics to which he will admit is wishing misfortune in busines to Rupert Murdoch, whose Fox Channel launched Super League, which resulted in the removal of North Sydney Bears from the NRL.

Emily has flaming red hair and an equally flaming passion for chemistry, cricket, bushwalking and Matt (her husband). Although not in that order. As a teenager she was captivated by the wonder and glory of God seen in creation leading her to investigate more about Him each day. Emily loves teaching kids about Jesus and their place in God's plan.
