Welcome to St Marks CRC
Here you will find an approach to Christianity that seeks to be inclusive, inquiring and intellectually robust. One rooted in Jesus of Nazareth and the momentum of faith-filled human being he embodied personally and engenders in others.
Please take time to look around and discover a little more about our approach and what we are able to offer. Above all, we hope you will accept our invitation to participate in a community of persons drawing inspiration from Jesus as we try to live authentically and with integrity in the 21st century.

With Dr Val Webb
This year we are very pleased to welcome Dr Val Webb back to CRC, this time to lead a full day conference. Val has delighted us twice already with seminar evenings on her books In defence of doubt and Testing tradition and liberating theology. Last year she was the keynote speaker at the Common Dreams Conference of Progressive Christianity in Brisbane. But now she returns to another theme on which she has written a couple of books, and which we are keen for her to share with us as it is a subject of great importance; namely, how we can credibly speak about God (not to mention to God).
