Bring your questions, bring your doubts, bring your brain. We’ll engage all 3.
Our Prayer Book Service is at 8am. It lasts for approximately 1 hour. We use the AAPB Prayer Book and alternate between Morning Prayer and Holy Communion services. Music, consisting of hymns, is led by our pipe organ or piano. Our 8am congregation is new but rapidly growing!
Morning Tea. We serve Morning Tea in between the 8am and 10am services to allow church members to mix. Please consider coming a little earlier for the 10am service to take part! We also serve morning tea after the 10am service.
Morning Church is at 10am. It lasts for approximately 75 minutes. All the words that we say together are printed for you in the order of service for that day. If you feel more comfortable just listening, then please don’t feel obliged to say/sing anything!
We start with a song, then a kids’ talk, before our children and young people leave for kids church; their own program of activities that run parallel to our meeting
Please feel welcome to meet those running our children’s programs.
St Augustine’s is fully compliant with the federal government’s Working With Children Check.
We use PowerPoint presentations to accompany the address each week and to project the words to songs we sing. This is part of our commitment to making what we do relevant and accessible to everyone.
We celebrate Holy Communion on the second and fourth Sundays of the month.
Night Church is at 5pm. Its style is less formal than the morning service. Relaxed, intimate, non-threatening and comfortable are how recent visitors to this meeting have described it.
At all meetings we include the following:
- Bible readings and address – we listen to God and learn about Jesus and what it means to trust and follow Him.
- Prayers – we speak to God.(We frequently ask for prayer requests, so that we will be praying for things that are relevant and important to the congregation.)
- Hymns and songs – in some we praise God directly; in others we address one another about God, and encourage one another to respond to Him.
