Our Ministry

Kids @ Church

Our church is very family friendly.  We have an area stocked with small toys, colouring books, and books to encourage families to worship together.

Kids@Church is organised for 9am Sundays. Our program offers a multi-age curriculum to cater for a range of ages, drawing inspiration from the weeks’ Gospel reading. There are  regular fellowship events throughout the year.

We now also offer bible-based activities online for primary aged children.

For more information, or to join our mailing list, please email Brenda.

Church Groups

Fellowship Meals

Afternoon teas and dinners are held on an occasional basis. Details are published in the weekly newsletter.

Prayer Group

Meeting each week, our prayer group provides opportunity to learn to pray and grow spiritually, as well as to share and to bear one another’s burdens. If you have a request for prayers, please call Margaret Arvidson on 9276 5067 or 0407192140.

Music Ministry

St Augustine’s Singers:

Rather than sitting together in the choir stalls we aim to assist the congregation in the singing by being scattered in the pews.
 

We normally meet Thursdays at 6.00pm for about an hour to practise the hymns for the following Sunday.

A weekly playlist of our hymns can be found on our You Tube channel.

Guide Me O Thou Great  Redeemer

A recent rendition of this hymn was seen by many as a metaphor for our spiritual journey.

We started very timidly, not knowing where we fitted in. We gradually gained in confidence, and were encouraged by our guest organist Luke, until we were able to sing with a crescendo: “Songs of Praises, I Will Ever Sing to Thee”.

Postlude – Christmas Eve Service 2018

Played by David, it put us in the right frame of mind to go out and spread the message of goodwill to all.

Ministry to the Aged

St Augustine’s provides a ministry to those in local aged care homes. Rev Chris Hind heads up a small band of assistants.

This trained and dedicated group provide friendship, read the Gospel and administer the sacraments to parishioners and all who request it, who by reason of their frailty cannot attend church.

Working in conjunction with the facility’s staff, they aim to counter any  frustration felt by the aged person because of immobility or isolation.
