New website, new look

We’ve changed our website!

Here’s what you can expect from our new online home.

New site architecture

We have done some major housekeeping, removed old pages, and rearranged our current ones so that they are easier to find.

We’ve also done away with the one global search tool and now have plenty of mini-search bars for you around the site.

If you’re new to St Mark’s and would like to learn more about starting your theological journey, check out our Studying with us section as well as a list of all our courses.

Currently studying with us? All of your information is stored in our Student Centre. It’s still a work in progress, so please let us know what else would be useful to add for you.

Catch up on our latest news and events in our appropriately named News and Events section.

And don’t forget to subscribe to our email newsletter. That’s easy to do — just scroll down to sign up at the footer of our website.

 

Online payments and shopfront

We now have the ability to take online payments. This means that some of our courses can be paid immediately online, depending on the complexity of entry requirements.

This also means that we will be able to sell your textbooks and other great and rare resources online. That feature will be coming up in the weeks ahead.

We are also revising the way we handle St Mark’s Review subscriptions. In the coming weeks, you will be able to buy one-off copies of St Mark’s Review or opt for an annual subscription.

We’re also always thankful for the great support we get from our friends and alumni. Donations by credit card are now available through our website.

 

A New St Mark’s Review

The Review will soon be expanding to include blog articles as well as our quarterly journal. Learn more about The Review.

Our blog features shorter articles on contemporary issues impacting our church, society, and the world and caters to a broad audience. These articles can range anywhere from 500 to 2,000 words and are published on a more ad hoc basis.

Our printed journal is a quarterly theological publication that brings a more academic focus and cadence to Christian issues. Each article is peer-reviewed and adheres to St Mark’s writing style guide. It is often a good starting platform for our students learning to write for formal publication.

Our Library has a home

St Mark’s National Memorial LibraryBishop Burgmann’s brainchild — is the flagship endeavour that started our journey in the theological and ministry educational space. The library is still very much a part of St Mark’s, but it now has a dedicated home-away-from-home on our website. Upcoming changes include regular updates on new arrivals of books and resources, and Library-only news. This section is still growing and changing, so watch this space.

Looking ahead

Looking ahead

You may have also noticed that our Lion is facing a different direction.

St Mark’s officially celebrates its 60th anniversary this year and as part of our celebrations, we have refreshed our branding to reflect the landscape in which we live, and our optimism.

Like the new brand, you can still expect many things to be comfortingly familiar. We will still deliver quality theological education rooted deep in Christian foundations. Our partnership with Charles Sturt University’s School of Theology is stronger than ever. As an organisation, we aim to deliver the best we can offer to a consistently professional standard while still maintaining a care and affection for one another and to our students and stakeholders. We are still very much a family.

But we’re also excited about the changes ahead. We are currently renovating our Durie Room so it can be easily converted from smaller teaching spaces into a larger facility for conferences and lectures. We are also planning new courses to provide skills and training that are highly relevant and applicable in all work settings — both church and corporate life — especially as most of us serve our church and brethren while holding down secular jobs and roles.

As they say, watch this space! To keep in touch with our news, courses, free lectures and events, you can sign up to our newsletter at the foot of our website or Like us on Facebook.
