Worship & Faith at St Augustine’s
- Our Sunday services begin at 11am, and are all family friendly.
- There is a service at 10am every Wednesday (communion or morning prayer). Currently on Zoom but will be returning in church soon.
- Messy Church is on the third Saturday of every month at 11am where we enjoy craft, stories, songs and share snacks together.

Open to Visitors
- The Church is always open on a Saturday morning for visiting and for private prayer between 9.30am and 11.00am. Feel free to come in and light a candle and then have a ‘cuppa and a chat’ with church members. All are welcome.
- Visit our news page or look at the calendar on the right hand side of each page or by clicking here to find out about what’s on.
- If you have a qualifying connection, we welcome you to have your children christened in our church. During the Christening service your child will be baptised. At Baptism, you make a decision to start your child’s journey of faith. The church and godparents support the family and the child in that decision. We also welcome adults who wish to be baptised.
- If you live in the parish or have a connection with the church, you’re welcome to marry in church whether or not you are baptised and whether or not you go to church.
- A funeral marks the close of a human life on earth, and is the opportunity for friends and family to express their grief, to give thanks for the life which has now completed its journey in this world.
