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 Feb 1st 2015

It definitely is the beginning of a New Year.  Things are gathering momentum and life seems to be very much getting back to normal.  As a number of you know we had our church broken into last weekend and some stuff taken.  This week has been sorting through with insurance stuff etc.  People have been very generous with offers of equipment and help for the office which has been great.   We are back up and running but will take a little bit of time to get things back to normality.

Our church life is getting back to full running.  Mainly Music starts back in a couple of weeks. Home groups are beginning to meet up again after the holidays and you will see the exciting and full Youth programme that Martin has put together for the first term.

Today at worship we continue along the Theme of knowing God and to know our calling.  Today we focus on the call to a Gospel and what that gospel is and what it isn’t.  Also at our 9.15am Service we acknowledge AAW (Association of Anglican Women) National Sunday. At this service AAW members will take part in various parts of the service and we will commission the new leaders of the St Augustines group. In the News sheet there is a helpful insert which gives you some background to how AAW started.

Next Sunday the 8th February the Youth Band will be leading at 11am and Patrick Henkle will be sharing a little of his recent trip to Argentina across all the services.

May God direct our hearts into God’s never failing love and grace.

Blessings, Kevin
