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.
This weekend Martin is attending a gathering of some 200 Anglican youth leaders being held at El Rancho camp, near Paraparaumu. It is great timing that this event is taking place just after Martin’s arrival, as it will quickly give him an appreciation of more of the NZ youth scene and facilitate his involvement in the network of other leaders.
Do please continue to pray for Martin as he settles into life here, begins to build relationships with our young people and with all of us in the parish, and picks up all the many aspects of his ministry among us.Yours in Christ, Philip
