    A message from Steve, our Vicar

    As we start to settle into a new pattern of life, we know that challenges will continue to exist, yet as a worshipping community we must persist in offering God’s love through our prayers and our actions. The promise of salvation, that we know to be true through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, is a message that can and will bring hope and optimism to all our friends and neighbour’s. St Augustine’s and St Luke’s have over the years I believe been a beacon of prayer for the community around us. Therefore, let us remain prayerful in calling communities to grow together in love, friendship, and unity, especially in these times of uncertainly.  

    In Christ you call us to a new way of life,
    loving our neighbours before ourselves.
    Help us to treat with care and respect the world as it is
    as we live in hope and anticipation of the world
    as it will be when your kingdom comes
    and your will is done. Amen

    Revision of the Electoral Roll
    In preparation for the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM) , a notice has been placed in the doorway at St Augustine's Church announcing the electoral roll is now under revision. If you are currently not on the electoral roll but would like to be added, please contact Alan Gorman (Electoral Roll Officer) at alan@the-gormans.net.
    The application form can be found here. This revision will end on 25th September.

    Donations by Cheque 
    If you previously donated via the collection plate or envelopes, and would like to bring your 2020 giving up-to-date by cheque rather than electronically, David our Treasurer will be pleased to receive them, as he is planning a visit to the bank in early October. Cheques are payable to St Augustine's with St Luke's. Place your cheque in an envelope for the attention of the Treasurer and pop it into the post box by the Church front doors before 1st October.
