We are a church passionate about seeing people come to know Jesus Christ, and be built up in him. For over 100 years men and women of all ages have been gathering at St Mark’s and growing as disciples of Christ.
We are an Anglican Evangelical church, committed to the teaching of Jesus Christ and living out our Christian faith in our local communities. Located on the corner of Burke & Canterbury Roads in Camberwell, you can visit us by driving or using public transport.
Meet The Leadership
Venerable Greg Allinson – Vicar
Greg has been the Vicar of St Mark’s since November 2009, and has been in full-time Christian ministry since 1991. He is passionate about biblical preaching, helping people discover Jesus, caring for people and building community together. In October 2012, Greg became the Archdeacon of Kew. He loves chatting to people about faith issues over a latté, down in the Burke Road cafes and sharing meals with people, especially washed down with red wine (good enough for Jesus … good enough for me!). Greg plays a variety of musical instruments within the music teams such as the saxophone, clarinet and piano. His particular interests are golf, cards, games, fishing, camping and anything that helps him spend time with people. Greg is married to Joy and has two daughters – Stefi and Zoe, all of whom also attend St Mark’s.

“Making sense of life.”
“To glorify God the Father, through his Son Jesus Christ, in the power of the Spirit.”
Our four-year vision:
"By 2018, St Mark's will be 3 congregations of caring mature Christians. We will be passionate about bringing the gospel to Camberwell and to our communities. People will encounter, respond to, and become disciples of Jesus."
Mission & Values
Our mission is to help people make sense of life. To do this, we need to make sense of God, discipleship of one another and relationship with one another. Within these three areas, St Mark's holds fast to 10 core values. These are things that shape us as a church: things we expect in our leaders, encourage in our members, and invite people attending St Mark's to experience.
For over 100 years, men, women and children have been gathering at the corner of Burke and Canterbury Rds, to praise and worship the Lord Jesus Christ.
St Mark's has a rich history, and as we further develop our website in coming months we aim to share this history with you. In the meantime should you wish to learn more about St Mark's, please contact our church office:
