The Bishop of Ontario is seeking to appoint an Incumbent for St. Mark’s Anglican Church in Barriefield village, in the east end of Kingston, Ontario.

As a parish, St. Mark’s Anglican Church prides itself on being a parish of dramatic and positive character. It is a strong and faithful community; alive with Spirit, filled with Spirit and guided by Spirit—ever seeking to ‘Faithfully move forward.’

St. Mark’s seeks an energetic clergyperson with vision who will lead our parish family with faith and guide us on our spiritual journey as we follow and serve Christ our Lord

At St. Mark’s you will find a welcoming, inclusive, loving, compassionate and spiritually guided congregation. Our parish is very active and involved in numerous events that connect us to our Christian community. Our Sunday Eucharist Services are celebrated in a beautiful 176 year old stone church in Barriefield Village overlooking the City of Kingston.

Our attitude of generosity and positivity serves to wonderfully guide us at what wonderful things we are able to accomplish when we reach out to others and ask for God’s blessing and guidance.

East Kingston continues to grow rapidly and we yearn to share the Lord’s message with the many families that now live within our parish. To achieve this we would like to expand our ministries: by offering programs for children and youth; by becoming more involved in the community; by leading Prayer and Bible studies and by connecting with other Churches.

Ultimately, we want to share the “Good News” of Jesus Christ. We have been praying for God to touch the heart of an energetic and inspiring person who has a passionate commitment to undertake this type of ministry. This person ideally will be enthusiastic, persuasive and able to inspire leadership potential in other people; this person will have the ability to recognize and motivate potential leaders from within the group.

Does the idea of this exciting challenge touch your heart? We pray it does! You will find that we are simply asking you to walk with us to do the Lord’s work. We’ll be with you every step along the way.
