St Augustine's is the parish church for Thorpe Bay. The building stands on a roundabout at the very centre of the parish, and for over 90 years the church has been at the centre of the life of the parish.
At St Augustine's we value the traditions of the Church of England - particularly the centrality of the Eucharist. We enjoy the singing of hymns, the clergy and choir wear robes, and our services make the most of the liturgical resources of the Church of England - old and new. However, you won't find St Augustine's to be 'stuffy'. We believe strongly that worship is for all - old and young, been-here-forever and new this Sunday, sings like Katherine Jenkins or can't hold a tune - you will be welcome at St Augustine's. We also believe that worship should be joyful and real. We laugh together and enjoy each other's company.
Children are very important at St Augustine's. The pandemic and an interregnum sadly put a stop to the regular children's groups, however, we are working hard to get things going again. If this is something that you could help with, please let the vicar know.
There is much more to find out, so why not come to meet us this Sunday?
