The Baby Loss Awareness Week Service
Light and Love
10th October 2021 at 4pm
This is the time of the year when the world remembers all those children who have been lost at anytime during pregnancy and after birth. Our service is gentile and peaceful and where you get a chance to write baby's name on a heart which will be kept safe on the Lady Chapel altar and you can light a rememberance candle too.
We dress up the inside and outside of the church in pink and blue lights and bows in remembrance of these greatly missed babies.
Please see pictures taken at 2019/2020 services on our Previous Events page
Gaudeamus Choir: The brilliant Gaudeamus, one of Southend's leading choirs had hoped to return to St Augustine's on Saturday 21st March. We hope to see them again soon as we resume our musical life and round of concerts in the church.

All Soulstide in early November is that time when the Church especially remembers all those who have died and those who mourn them.

We are easily accessible by train (Thorpe Bay station is on the main line from London Fenchurch Street) and bus (Nos 1, 7 and 9), and there is ample on-street parking around the church. The church itself is on an island site at the junction of Johnstone Road and St Augustine’s Avenue.
