Welcome to St Augustines Church

Hi and welcome to St. Augustine’s.

St Augustines ChurchWe are delighted to share this place of worship with you. We hope you enjoy the beauty of the architecture, which is designed to honour God. Feel free to look around, sit, pray and soak up the tranquility of this beautiful place. Even more, we hope that you will get to know us and join in the life of this church family. We love to welcome and include people, and to offer something for people of all ages. This includes worship services of various styles, small groups that provide friendship and teaching, and many other activities.

Most of all, we hope that you may grow closer to our Lord Jesus Christ – building your knowledge of God and being open to all that the Holy Spirit wants to do in you and through you. As a church, we are excited about the mission that God calls all Christians to – to be agents of God’s love and truth to a needy world. We believe that this is what the church exists for.

We would love you to become part of that with us. May the Lord bless you with His peace and grace.

From the pastoral Priest, Sunday February 14th 2016

We have begun the season of Lent in the church year.  Lent is a time when we focus our attention on our relationship with God. It is a time when we take stock and ask those deeper questions of our faith.  How are we doing in our relationship with Jesus Christ?  How is our prayer life and our Bible Reading going?  We also journey with Jesus through his life and ministry moving towards the cross of Good Friday and the empty tomb of the resurrection.  I hope you take time to ponder these things and so deepen your relationship with God.

Today we commission the Alpha Team.  This is a new phase in Alpha here at St Augustines.  Alpha is a very important ministry for the church as we encourage those who want to learn more about the Christian faith.  Next week we will commission the Mainly Music Team

Philip and Lynda continue to be on leave until around the 24 February.  Pray for refreshment and renewal for them during this time.

May the peace of God which passes all understanding keep our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Blessings Kevin
