'On 13 June 1909 the rector of Guoildford opened a mission hall called St Mark's in what is now Lord St. and weekly services were held there. On Friday morning, 26 February, 1915 St Mark's mission hall was blown down in an exceptionally severe storm. The men of the congegation re-erected the hall on a site obtained in Wilson St. in the heart of the village and full of faith they built next to it the brick chancel or sanctuary area of the present church....On 12 December, 1937 over 350 people assembled to celebrate the consecration of the brick nave of St Mark's.'  (for more history see - http://bassendean.perth.anglican.org/about-church-on-the-rise/a-hundred-and-two-not-out-st-marks-1909-2012/).
