Ways you can become part of the St Mark’s community

  • attending St Mark’s events including public lectures, seminars and conferences, the annual open day and awards dinner.
  • joining the St Mark’s library where you can borrow from one of the largest theological libraries in the Southern Hemisphere.
  • subscribing to St Mark’s Review theological journal. 
St Mark’s has benefitted greatly from the continued generosity of Friends and Alumni through individual financial contributions, fund-raising events, and through volunteered time and expertise.
 
  • If you would like to volunteer your time and expertise please contact us at admin@stmarks.edu.au. Current volunteers provide a range of assistance including library, business skills, graphic design and gardening.
  • We are always grateful for donations and bequests to the Burgmann Foundation. Since the mid-1990s, donations and bequests from Friends and Alumni have provided funds for a new library wing, temporary research centre, major building improvements, new course development, and prizes and scholarships.
