Welcome!  We are a diverse church community; we want to welcome people from all backgrounds, and we would love to meet you!  The easiest way to connect initially is to come along on a Sunday morning at 10.30am, or get in touch with us: office@stac.org.uk or Tel. 020 7354 5515.

We are committed to following and knowing Jesus Christ, His grace, truth and love, and His saving and transforming power.

As a church community, we love:

Worshipping God.  Jesus said this: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself.' (Matthew 22:37-39).  We love worshipping God through song and music together, as well as through collective prayer.  On a Sunday as we gather, we worship God with our voices, but ultimately we want to worship Him with our heart, soul, mind, and the lives that we live every day.  The Bible tells us that the way we treat others is the way we treat Jesus (Matthew 25:31-46).

The Bible.  We love the Bible and believe it is the handbook for life and the lens through which we interpret the world.

Community.  Community, relationship and finding a place to belong are really important values at St Augustine's.  Everyone matters, and everyone has different gifts and skills which enrich and bless the life of the church family and local neighbourhood.  We want to be a community of people journeying and sharing together as followers of Jesus through the calms and storms of life, through the joy and the pain.


Children, Young people and Adults of all ages and backgrounds.  We believe that it is fundamentally important that everyone is encouraged and supported in their life and faith as a follower of Jesus, whatever their age and background.  From age 0 upwards, there are groups, activities, and ministries for you to be a part of.


The Kingdom of God.  Jesus teaches his followers to pray to God: 'Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven' (Matthew 6:10).  As a church family, this is something that we pray often and regularly.  We long for God's kingdom of salvation, healing, freedom, reconciliation, power, justice and transformation to break out in and through each of our lives, in our church community, in our neighbourhood, our homes, workplaces, schools and beyond.  We act and pray for God's rule and reign to be increasingly experienced in and around us.


Serving and Reaching Others.  Jesus said that He came not to be served, 'but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many' (Mark 10:45).  Caring for the poor and those struggling in life, practically serving those in need, supporting each other, and helping others to encounter Jesus themselves, are really important values at St Augustine's.  There are many different ways to serve, reach out and make a difference, and we believe that everyone has something important to give to others.


Growing as Followers of Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit.  God's plan and purpose for us is to become more and more like Jesus (Romans 8:29), and as we follow Jesus and experience transformation, the Holy Spirit gives us particular gifts (Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, 1 Corinthians 14) and qualities (Galatians 5:22-23).  We want to help and encourage each other to be filled and transformed by the Holy Spirit, so that like Jesus, we might serve and reach out to others in the power of the Holy Spirit (Luke 4:14).



Whether you're new to the area, or simply wanting to come and see what St Augustine's is like, you are really welcome.  If there's anything we can do to help you as you visit, please do let us know.  We gather as a church community at 10.30am.  This lasts about an hour and twenty minutes, finishing by about midday.  The service contains numerous elements such as prayer, musical worship, Bible exploration and teaching, and prayer ministry.  There are also age appropriate groups for all the children and young people.  10.30am on Sundays: we would love to see you!
