St Mark's Anglican Church, Brantford, Ontario

Nativity of Christ Baptism of Christ Calming of the Storm Ascension of our Lord

St Mark's Anglican Church, Brantford was built in 1965 with an addition in 1979. In 1978, the congregation embarked on a fund-raising campaign to install stained glass windows. London, Ontario artist, Christopher Wallis, was then commissioned to design the windows. The windows on the north wall, 4 of which are pictured above, show events in Jesus' life in sequence.

St. Mark's is a multi-aged congregation with over 420 families on the church role and prides itself in being child-friendly. They have 2 Sunday services and a Wednesday service. Rector is the Ven. Dr. Jim Sutton who is also Archdeacon of Brant/Norfolk & Oxford.

Amazing Grace Project

In the Amazing Grace Project all Canadian Anglican congregations have been encouraged to sing the hymn "Amazing Grace" on Sunday November 23rd 2008.

Some congregations are singing the song as part of their regular Sunday service, others have chosen to make it a public event with plans to sing the hymn at the town square or local tourist attraction.

It is hoped every singer will donate $2 in support of the Council of the North. The Council is an assembly of the 11 most northern dioceses covering 85% of the country. Parishes in this area face enormous financial challenges both because of the vast area they cover and the high cost of living in Canada's north.

All parishes are encouraged to videotape their rendition of "Amazing Grace" and to send that video to the national office of the Anglican Church of Canada by December 1, 2008. The tapes will be edited together into one big, amazing "Amazing Grace" video and put on YouTube for all to enjoy by Christmas.

For more information see Amazing Grace Project on the Anglican Church of Canada website.
