This Sunday August 19
'Conquering the world'
The Congregation of Mark the Evangelist values worship and preaching, good music, hospitality and service.
Weekly worship is on Sundays at 10am, including a children's program during school term.
The congregation operates UnitingCare Hotham Mission, in co-operation with other church and community groups in the area, reflecting our concern to address poverty and marginalisation.
We run regular study groups and faith education series exploring faith for the contemporary world.
You are very welcome to join us in any of our activities!
