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 Dec 21st 2014

Isn’t it great to have Dyers Pass Road open again! It felt like an early Christmas present to not have to detour to get to church!

Today at 9.15am we will enjoy the service of 9 Readings & Carols, which is such a special part of the lead up to Christmas. Thanks to all those who are reading and leading prayers, musicians and to the choir for all their preparation for this service.

Also today at 4pm we have the Pre-schoolers Crib Service and on Tuesday at 6.30pm the Christingle Service. These two services are delightful opportunities for children to be touched by the joy of the message which is at the real heart of Christmas.

Some of you will be travelling over the Christmas period; may you be blessed wherever you will be celebrating the birth of our Lord. For those coming to St. Augustine’s at Christmas there are 3 service options, please note that the times are different to a normal Sunday:
  • 11.30pm Christmas Eve – Candlelight Communion
  • 8.30am Christmas Day – Communion Service
  • 10.30am Christmas Day – All-Age Celebration Service
Thank you to all of you for your faithful involvement in the life of St. Augustine’s this past year. May your celebration of Christmas warm your heart, refresh your spirit, and enliven your faith.

Yours in Christ, Philip
