St Mark's Anglican Church, Warwick

Second St. Mark's Church of England, Warwick, circa 1887

St Mark's Anglican Church is a heritage-listed church located at 55 Albion Street, Warwick, Queensland, Australia. It is the second church on that name on that site.


The Reverend Benjamin Glennie had a plan to establish the (then) Church of England on the Darling Downs through four churches in the larger towns named after the four apostles: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.[1]

The first St Mark's church was constructed in 1858 by the Reverend Benjamin Glennie. It was a simple slab structure and in 1868 Glennie decided a more durable building would be desirable. The second (and current) church was designed by architect Richard George Suter.[2] The foundation stone was laid by Bishop Edward Tufnell on 19 March 1868.[3]


The church is made of sandstone in a crucifix shape with a tower. The roof is (modern) COLORBOND steel.[2]

The church was listed on the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.[2]
