It’s not every day a preacher gets to preach his all time favourite Biblical passage, but our Rector Craig did at the end of our series from the book of Revelation. Here it is:


At St Mark’s we’re recently spent some time in the book of Revelation. Some people find Revelation a difficult book to get their head around because it is a bit long and complicated. But the stuff God says in Revelation make it worth getting your head around!

To help people do that, we thought we’d point to some useful online resources including:

A great online commentary on Revelation

A simple summary of the structure of Revelation

Some helpful diagrams here, here, here and here

Cross references to the crucial Old Testament background alluded to throughout Revelation

(note that we make no comment about the quality of any other resources on any of the sites linked to).

Of course the best thing you could do is sit down with your preferred beverage and just read Revelation through from beginning to end.

Kids Plus is an after school programme for kids in years 3 – 6 at school held on Fridays 3.30 – 5.30pm during term times. We learn about our awesome God from the Bible, play games, have afternoon tea and make things! (A small weekly cost is involved). Kids Plus will start up again Feb 21. Can’t wait!

We had a great time celebrating the birth of our saviour this year. If you want a reminder of why Jesus’ birth is such a reason to celebrate you can listen to our 2013 Christmas messages below:

From our family services: The Birth of God’s king


And the MA15+ version: Christmas uncut


Gluten Free logo I don’t know why, but lots of people nowdays have to put up with being intolerant to gluten.

That’s a bit of a problem if you want to celebrate the Lord’s Supper, because one of the two essential ingredients is bread!

To make life a little bit easier, St Mark’s Pennant Hills has introduced the option of gluten free bread at 6.30pm church. We use Country Life Bakery bread and it is prepared and stored separately to the regular bread. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper once a month, and you’re welcome, whatever your stance towards gluten!
