Welcome to the website of the Anglican, Methodist and Free Church community at St Augustine of Canterbury Church in North Springfield, Chelmsford.

We are delighted to announce the Revd Caroline Brown, who is currently Priest in Charge of Great Waltham and Ford End, The Chignals, Great & Little Leighs and Little Waltham, has been appointed Priest in Charge (House for Duty) of St. Augustine’s North Springfield. Caroline will be licensed by the Bishop of Bradwell on Tuesday 5th November 2019.

Saint Augustine’s is a very special church. We come from many different church traditions and we are part of both the Church of England and the Methodist Church. As a result you will find variety in worship and an openness to different viewpoints. The church is shared with the Roman Catholic Community and our two congregations share activities together.

We believe that at the heart of the Christian message is the revelation of God’s love in human form in the person of Jesus. That love is for all of us. It doesn’t depend on who we are, where we are from or what we believe. We believe that God’s love can be found in a multitude of places and it certainly is too big for any one denomination or even religion to think it has a monopoly on God’s love. Ours certainly isn’t a “we are right so everyone else must be wrong” kind of church.

As members of an inclusive church we believe in a church which:

  • Does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality
  • Welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus
  • Is faithful
  • Seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation, and
  • In the power of the Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and deep is the love of God
