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 October 26th

My eye surgery has gone well this week and I am now slowly adjusting to my new vision. It is amazing that, what is now such a comparatively simple procedure, can make such a dramatic difference.

Next Saturday there is a great opportunity being provided by Latimer Fellowship, as Peter Jensen gives a series of addresses on ‘God’s Glorious Gospel’. Details are printed below. I encourage you to get along to that event.

Yours in Christ, Philip

God’s Glorious Gospel – Saturday 1st November

The apostle Paul boldly declares that the gospel is the power of salvation for all who believe.  Two hundred years ago that powerful gospel was publicly declared in these Islands for the first time.  Today that same gospel of Jesus’ death and resurrection is still powerful to save and transform.

Join us as Peter Jensen, former Archbishop of Sydney, speaks of the challenges facing the gospel, and the character of the God whose gospel it is.  Come and be reinvigorated and encouraged to trust, love and proclaim God’s glorious gospel.
