St. Mark’s was founded in 1986 by Pastor Gary and Wilma Davidson from Oklahoma in the USA, the fledgling ‘Family Worship Centre’ needed a home. In 1987 the leadership team, along with the founding members of the church went to view a Church on Pearse Street called St Mark’s and it was decided to place an offer to buy the property. Having secured the purchase, the first Sunday morning service took place in late November 1987, while renovations were still being carried out.
In January 2001 Pastor Sean and Susan Mullarkey arrived back to the Church after a number of years serving in another local Church and working for a National Youth organisation. They came to work alongside the leadership team and were installed as Senior Pastors in April 2004.
St Mark’s has gone from strength to strength and it now holds three Sunday services to accommodate the growing number of participants. St Mark’s Church describes itself as ‘a fellowship of born again, Spirit filled believers who are from a variety of backgrounds. The community believes that God has called the church to establish a loving, spiritually sound centre of ministry, a ‘well of salvation’ and a place where individuals can reach their full potential in Christ Jesus’.
On the 25th of April 2007 St Mark’s Church celebrated its 20th anniversary as a Pentecostal fellowship, along with commemorating the 250th anniversary of the building being used as a centre of Christian worship. To mark these significant occasions the President of Ireland officially opened the week long festivities and was the keynote speaker at the opening ceremony.
Today, St Mark’s continues the long tradition of Christian worship in Ireland’s capital city and it continues to start other Churches in different parts of our great city.
