Ngaala kaaditj Noongar moort keyen kaadak nidjar boodjar.
We acknowledge Noongar people as the original custodians of this land.
We pray that our imprint on this earth may bear the marks of reverence for this fragile planet and for each other as we journey together on the path towards reconciliation.
Our core purpose
We are a people called to worship God in Jesus Christ and by the power of the Spirit to share radical love with the world, building communities of hope, healing, and transformation.
At St Augustine’s we believe that God has been good to us and we want to share that love and hospitality with our wider community through ministry.
Our Parish today is made up of people who range in age from babies to lively adults of up to 95 years old. Many of our involved people have joined us quite recently, while others have worshipped here for most of their lives. We love to meet people and look forward to making you welcome. Whether you’re visiting for the day, “trying us out” or deciding to stay for the long term – we invite you to worship and then stay for a “cuppa” and chat afterwards.
There has been an Anglican Church in this district since 1897. The first was a small wooden Church which was built on the cnr, of Grafton and Guildford Roads, Bayswater, and served Maylands and Bayswater residents. In 1906 this Church was dismantled by volunteers and moved to Murray Street as the ‘Village of Bayswater” was growing around the Railway Station.
In 1957 a new Church was built next door to the existing wooden Church which was dismantled in 1961. The present Church stands on the cnr of Roberts & Murray Streets. The stained glass window, WW1 Honour Board, Baptismal Font, GFS & MU Banners, Prayer Stool, Brassware and Church Bell (the first bell cast in WA) were then moved to the new Church. A Pipe Organ was later installed in memory of Mr. Warner, Church Warden for many years.
