“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
