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 July 3rd 2016

Our recent nonagenarian theme continues as we congratulate Marjorie Latimer on reaching her 90th birthday! Marjorie is a much-loved member of our church family who has tirelessly served the church in many ways, including the role of sacristan (caring for the linen and other items used in communion). We pray for every blessing on Marjorie as she celebrates this milestone.

The Upper Room’ service last Sunday evening was a great success. The Hannan Centre was set up in a very creative way, making a warm atmospheric setting for what was a gentle and engaging inter-active service of worship. Well done Martin and the team. The Upper Room will continue fortnightly, and will be exploring aspects of the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit.

Lynda and I are away over this weekend as we catch our breath with a few days R & R.

Yours in Christ, Philip
