Information for Visitors

We are normally delighted to welcome visitors to our services, to join in our worship. This page would ordinarily contain (possibly helpful) information for such people. We hope that it will again when normality, or a better approximation thereto, resumes.

For the benefit of the very curious, the usual version of this page can be viewed here.

Until then, we can probably do no better than to reiterate the current arrangements for everyone who comes to the church building, and, as appropriate, to offer a little guidance upon worshipping here under the pandemic regulations. Please accept our apologies if we seem less welcoming than you, or we, might wish.

IMPORTANT NEWS — updated 4th November 2020

Public worship in the Church of England has been suspended during the current Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic lockdown.

Online Sunday Services

Saint Augustine’s Church has its own YouTube channel, on which our 10:00 am Sunday services will be available during the period of restrictions required to reduce the impact of the pandemic. It can be found at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYBIuyAatl5kfw5dcthxF-w, and we hope that if you cannot join us in person then you will visit it, and participate, albeit at a distance, in our Sunday worship.

We are able to open to a limited extent for private prayer, though normally only on Sundays and Tuesdays at present, and for only a relatively small number of people at a time. This is necessary to ensure that the church building can be properly cleaned before the next time it is opened. We shall update this information when it changes.

Changes to Opening Dates

ABRSM exams are taking place in the church, and this means that there will be changes to the days when the church is open for private prayer.

The church will be open on:

  • Thursday 26th November
