Thy Kingdom Come

Between Ascension Day and Pentecost, 10th to 20th May, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will host Beacon Events, gathering people across towns and cities to worship and to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for effective witness.  And here at St Augustine’s we are playing our own small part:

10 to 20 May               Prayer Room

For ten days the Godly Play room at the back of church will become our prayer room, a creative space to engage the heart and mind in prayer. Whenever the church is open, you can go in there and pray for one minute, five minutes, two hours . .  .

Thursday 10 May              Ascension Day 

8.00 pm Holy Communion at St Augustine's

Sunday 20 May                   Pentecost Sunday

10.00 am Pentecost is one of the most exciting festivals in the Christian calendar and we will have a special service focusing on the gift of the Holy Spirit, ending up (weather permitting) outside church on the grass. Because that’s where we want to be, out in the community sharing the good news.
