  St Augustines Locking Family Service

Who and What are we?

St Augustine’s is a Christian Church. That means that we put Jesus Christ central in our worship and teach and encourage each other to live our lives in a similar way.

St Augustine’s is an Anglican church. We belong to the Church of England. This means that we belong to an organisation that has millions of members worldwide. The Anglican church is one branch of the largest family in the world -the whole Christian church. It also means that we have a legal responsibility for the parish we work in.

This means we baptise, marry, and take funerals for people who live in the community, we reach out to the community in love and we are responsible for praying for it. Special Services - Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals

If you want prayer for yourself or for another person, please ring us up and ask. If there is anything that you want to talk about in confidence - again, any of the clergy will be happy to listen to you or recommend you to the ministry Team..
