Our Foundation

St. Mark's is a church community in the Anglican Diocese of Huron.

Anglicanism is a Protestant Christian denomination based in the tradition of the Church of England. Anglican revolves around the Scriptures contained in the Bible, the tradition of the Church throughout its history, reason to help us make wise decisions, and personal and congregational experience with the Living God. You can read more about Anglican doctrine and distinctives here.

Our church is committed to living the Five Marks of Mission adopted by the Anglican Communion:

  • To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
  • To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
  • To respond to human need by loving service
  • To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation
  • To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

We believe all people regardless of gender identities, racial and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, abilities, economic circumstances and family configurations are invited to fully participate in all the sacraments of the church.
