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 Vicar, Sunday 14th Sept 2014

We give a big welcome today to the special family whom we support in their mission work in Central Asia. It will be so good to have an update today about what the Lord is doing through them and among the Christians in the place where the Lord has called them to serve. This relationship is a very important part of our parish engagement in global mission and is a great inspiration to us. May we encourage and bless this family as we continue our commitment to support and pray for them.

Next Sunday is our annual Parish Day of Giving, which provides opportunity to give financial support to some specific parish projects. If you have not already received the Day of Giving letter and envelope, copies are available at the back of the church today. That letter details our focus on Youth Ministry, our commitments to Global Mission, and also donations to General Funds. Please consider how you may be able to contribute to this Day of Giving.

Yours in Christ, Philip
