The newly formed Anglican Community of St Mark has celebrated its beginnings and charged its members for mission at the 2020 AFFIRM Conference in Christchurch.
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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
