We are what is called an “Ecumenical Partnership”. Being ecumenical means that different Christian denominations join together at St Augustine’s, which we think is exactly how it should be. Being a partnership means that we work together, valuing everyone’s contribution, respecting everyone’s viewpoint and enjoying the different traditions and perspectives that come from our roots in the Church of England. Methodist Church and the free churches.
Our services begin at 10:45am on Sunday mornings. You will find details on the “Worship” page. Our services reflect our commitment to inclusion which means that everyone is welcome regardless of gender, sexual orientation, health or disability, ethnicity or background. We believe that God’s love is for all.
If you look at the “Community” page you will see details of some of the activities that take place at St Augustine’s and we would be delighted to talk to you about anything that you are interested in – just use the details on the “Contact us” page to get in touch.
Currently, St Augustine’s doesn’t have a Church of England vicar because our previous vicar, Rev Jane Anderson has recently moved on. You can still contact us and you will find details on our Contact Us page, and by clicking here.
While we are without our own Anglican priest, our services will be taken by other Anglican or Methodist clergy and by our “Reader” or lay minister, Simon Carpenter.
Various members of our church get involved in leading worship, music, pastoral work and arranging social activities and fundraising. We try to be a real community.
