Parish Board

We, the Parish Board of St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church - Melbourne, are committed to fostering a vibrant spiritual community rooted in the rich traditions and teachings of the Coptic Orthodox faith. Our mission is to support our Clergy in the administrative and financial aspects of the Church.


We strive to uphold the values of love, compassion, and unity, encouraging each parishioner to live a life reflective of the teachings of Christ. By providing strong, transparent and organised leadership, careful stewardship of the Church’s resources and assets, and proactive planning.


We aim to empower our community to flourish in faith, hope, and love, reaching out to all with the message of the Gospel.
