Sandstone and Stained Glass @St. Mark's Open Days

Details

Throughout the weekend, guided tours of one of Queensland’s oldest and most historically significant churches will illustrate St. Mark’s role in the religious and social history of the Southern Downs. The pioneer clergyman Benjamin Glennie, who was known as the Apostle of the Downs instigated the building of the Suter designed 1868 Church. Tours will be enhanced by large screen presentations of recent renovations allowing a peep into the bones of the building. There will also be opportunities to hear the Whitehouse Bros of Brisbane Pipe Organ installed in 1922 and the Carillon, installed in 1962. Associated activities throughout the weekend will be held in the adjacent locally heritage listed Parish Hall. They will include sales of memorabilia including the Guide to the Historic Windows of St. Mark’s Church, pre-loved books and handicrafts from the St. Mark’s Craft Group. The ladies of St. Mark’s Women’s Guild ably assisted by other parishioners will again operate the Heritage Tea Rooms. Delicious home-baked goodies for morning and afternoon tea along with more substantial fare for lunch, will be offered in an attractive cafĂ© setting. A special pre-loved Jewellery and Treasures sale will be run by the The Friends of St. Mark’s on the Saturday Morning. A special event on Sunday 30th April will celebrate the May Day weekend with a Maypole and costumed strolling Minstrels
