Hi and welcome to St. Augustine’s.
We 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.
Thanks to all who contributed to running the Summer of Fun ‘Fun Day’ at St. Aug’s yesterday. It’s great to welcome and serve the community around us in that way
The word ‘service’, when we consider both common uses of the word in the church, provides a simple summation of what it is to be a Christian.
Firstly we use the word ‘service’ to speak of our coming together to worship the Lord. The Sunday ‘Service’ therefore refers to our humble honouring of God; our giving the Lord praise; and our joining in that worship together as the Lord’s family.
Secondly we use the word ‘service’ to speak of how we use our abilities and resources to bless others and to do the Lord’s work.
So, that one word ‘service’ says a great deal about what it is to be a disciple of Jesus.
Yours in Christ, Philip
