“The kingdom of God has come near.
Repent and believe the good news!”

A bit about us
The Anglican Community of St Mark
ACM was established in 2019 as a national network of Anglican Christians that seek to teach and practice traditional orthodox bible-based Christianity. We seek to call all to repent and believe the good news of Jesus Christ. Our aim is to breathe a spirit of grace-filled optimism into the Church and equip one another for today’s gospel challenges.
Four-Fold Mission Statement
ACM embraces the four-fold mission statement contained within the Constitution of the ACANZP. Namely:
proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ
teaching, baptizing and nurturing believers
teach, baptizing and nurturing believers within eucharistic communities of faith
responding to human need by loving service
establishing the values of the Kingdom
seeking to transform unjust structures of society, caring for God’s creation, and establishing the values of the Kingdom
“Being a part of the Anglican Community of St. Mark is a wonderful encouragement to our parish. Membership encourages us to grow in our participation in the mission of God, to rejoice and thrive under the blessing and authority of God’s word, and to support and be supported by a strong, loving community of Jesus followers from across the Anglican Church of Aotearoa, New Zealand, and Polynesia.”
— Rev. Dr. Thomas C. Brauer
“I see the Anglican Community of St. Mark as a spearhead missional community for individuals and parishes who are dedicated and willing to pioneer the proclamation of the gospel (Mark 1:15), in New Zealand in 2021 and beyond, and to share these discoveries with each other and the wider church for mutual encouragement.”
— Rev. Lorraine Lloyd
“ACM offers much to the Anglican Church in Aotearoa NZ. I am excited to belong to a community passionate for the saving power of the gospel of Jesus and committed to empowering congregations, supporting clergy, inspiring mission, and developing church planting churches.”
— Penny Field
“God’s unchanging life-giving Word is for me the bedrock of my faith. The Anglican Community of St Mark is how I, as an Orthodox Anglican, can remain within this church without compromising the foundations of my faith and to receive mutual encouragement and support in proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ from like-minded believers.”
— Joan Watson
“I am an individual member of ACM and have found the encouragement and support invaluable. I have found common ground and language from which I enjoy great fellowship and understanding. My church has also become an affiliate member and it has given us a sense of legitimacy, recognition and protection within the ACANZ”
— Rev. Fraser McDermott
