We are now using Zoom for our Sunday services which start at 10.30am each week, but you are welcome to join us any time from 10.00am onwards.
Details of how to join the service wil be posted on this website at 10.00am each Sunday and will remain here until 11.30am. Please note that the link changes for each individual service, so do check back here each week.
The service will no longer be live-streamed on Facebook or on our website and we apologise to anyone for whom this may be inconvenient. It is easy to use Zoom on a computer or a mobile device but if you need help with it please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help.
Thursday 21st May was Ascension Day, the day when Christians focus on Jesus’ return to his Father in what the Bible describes as his ‘ascension’ into heaven. Churches generally hold Ascension Day services and, once again, this year we had to find new ways to do this while we are in lockdown.
Churches from across the north of Chelmsford have joined together in a “Mission and Ministry Partnership”. A dozen churches joined together on YouTube in a joint service to mark Ascension Day. St Augustine’s was among them and working in partnership with other churches, across denominations, is an important feature of our church.
You can find the service on YouTube here.
The link to join us will be posted on our website at 9.00am each Tuesday. Please note that the link is different every Tuesday, so please check back each week. We look forward to seeing you.
The Church of England in the Diocese of Chelmsford has felt it necessary to take the decision that churches can no longer be kept open for private prayer. This decision has been taken with a heavy heart, but it is in recognition that people have been advised to stay at home wherever possible.
If you would like us to pray for you then please contact us and we will be pleased to do so. You can get in touch via our church email: email@example.com or by telephoning Revd Caroline Brown at the Vicarage on 01245 697955
