What we usually do through the year at St. Augustine's church.
As well as our regular services, we have a number of special events which we usually celebrate each year. This does not prevent us from doing yet more things if we so wish !
St. Augustine's is part of Holy Trinity parish, so takes part in all the parish activities; we haven't tried to include all the parish activities in this list. See the Holy Trinity pages for details of the parish activities.
|Garden party||January||A relaxed afternoon in someone's garden, with tea, cakes, and undemanding ( not compulsory ) activities. Croquet has recently been popular.|
|Patronal celebration||May||St. Augustine is remembered on May 26; on a Sunday close to that date we have a special service of thanksgiving.|
|Christmas windows||In time for Christmas services||Not strictly a formal activity, but the windows go up every year. We're rather pleased with them !|
|Carol service, and barbecue||December||Carols, and a story, and ( afterwards ! ) a barbecue. BYO !|
|Christingle service||Christmas Eve||A very popular service; the Christingle reminds us of God's bounty to us, and particularly of the gift of His Son.|
